Evolving into a premier, flexible and customer-focused organization has been Bell and Howell’s focus for some time now.So, it comes as no surprise that our company was ranked as the 99th best training organization in the world by Training Magazine, the leading business publication for L&D professionals.
Bell and Howell has made the distinguished Training Top 125, which recognizes companies that achieve excellence in employer-sponsored training and development programs, for a record 12th time.
Lorri Freifeld, Training Magazine’s Editor-in-chief, said that the 2017 Training Top 125 winners showed exception. Winners don’t just set the bar for employee training and development. They vault over it.
“They are champions of learning and ensure their employees have the skills to succeed in this competitive, ever-changing world,” she said.
The Bell and Howell Service Difference
Bell and Howell prides itself on its collaboration. Innovative service and technology solutions enrich its customers’ communications and fulfillment. Our customer service engineers and technical service engineers train in a world-class training center at our company’s Durham, NC headquarters. Additionally, these field service personnel travel to the center to undergo extensive training. In this way, our professionals get certified proficient on any new system that our service business chooses to support.
Now in its 17th year, the Training Top 125 ranking is based on myriad benchmarking statistics such as total training budget; percentage of payroll; the number of training hours per employee program; goals, evaluation, measurement, and workplace surveys; hours of training per employee annually; and detailed formal programs. The magazine determines rank by assessing a range of qualitative and quantitative factors. These include financial investment in employee development, the scope of development programs, and close links between development and business objectives.
