FORT SMITH, Ark. — ArcBest said its employee training program operated by less-than-truckload carrier ABF Freight placed 13th among Training magazine’s Training Top 125, which ranks companies’ excellence in employer-sponsored training and development programs.
The training program appears on the list for the eighth consecutive year; it ranked 23rd in 2016.
“At ArcBest, we want to ensure our employees have the tools they need to grow in their careers,” said Erin K. Gattis, chief human resources officer for ArcBest. “We are pleased the program at ABF Freight was once again recognized for the importance our organization places on training and employee development.”
Now in its 16th year, the Training Top 125 ranking is based on total training budget; percentage of payroll; number of training hours per employee program; goals, evaluation, measurement and workplace surveys; hours of training per employee annually; and detailed formal programs. The ranking is determined by assessing 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.
Published by Lakewood Media Group, Training magazine is aimed at training, human resources and business management professionals in all industries who advocate training and workforce development as a business tool.
The rankings were unveiled during an awards gala during the Training 2017 Conference & Expo in San Diego recently.
