Capital BlueCross upholds No. 3 ranking globally on
list of Training magazine’s top companies
HARRISBURG, Pa. (March 5, 2015) – For the second straight year, Capital BlueCross is ranked No. 3 globally on the Training magazine annual list of Top 125 companies for employee training. Training magazine is published for training, human resources, and management professionals across all industries. The publication advocates training and workforce development as a valuable business tool.
“To be ranked within the top 10 for the past three years is testament enough to Capital BlueCross’ commitment to employee growth and development, but to uphold our ranking among the top three truly recognizes our ongoing pursuit to provide training of the highest level," said Steve Krupinski, senior vice president, Human Resources, at Capital BlueCross. "This is an outstanding honor for our company, and a tribute to the dedicated employees who participate in our training and development programs."
During the past several years, Capital BlueCross has placed an increasing emphasis on employee learning and leadership development, particularly as the business undergoes changes related to health care reform. Through the design and implementation of a comprehensive talent management program, the company is developing leaders across the organization with skills and abilities to execute its current business strategy and chart a successful course for the future.
In scoring the 2015 applications, the Training Top 125 judges focused relentlessly on how applicants demonstrated the effectiveness of their training through
Kirkpatrick Level 3 (behavior) and 4 (results) evaluations,” said Lorri Freifeld, editor-in-chief of Training magazine. “That ratcheted up the level of competition, with the winners demonstrating a commendable commitment to employee training and development that resulted in the achievement of key corporate strategic goals.”
The Top 125 ranking is determined by assessing a range of qualitative and quantitative factors, including financial investment in employee development, the scope of development programs, and how closely such development efforts are linked to business goals and objectives.
