TrainingPros has been named one of Atlanta’s “Best Places to Work” in the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s 16th annual ranking of 100 metro-area companies. We are a staffing agency that connects large organizations with specialized learning and development (L&D) contract professionals. This exclusive list recognizes organizations for having created an exceptional workplace and culture that their employees value highly. Winners of the prestigious award were honored by Atlanta Business Chronicle at a virtual event held on Sept. 24, 2020.
The Selection Process
Best Places to Work award applicants were evaluated and ranked across four categories. Applicants were selected from more than 500 entries and grouped by the number of their Atlanta-area employees. This year’s results highlight employee satisfaction at TrainingPros in key engagement areas. Including team dynamics, trust in leadership, communication and resources, manager effectiveness, and personal engagement.
“TrainingPros appreciates being included on this distinctive list,” said Leigh Anne Lankford, president. “We consciously built a culture that helps build morale, where our virtual working employees refer to the company as ‘home’ and turnover is extremely low. We foster that by stressing that it’s important, as much as possible, to speak with coworkers rather than simply writing an email or sending a report. And encourage spending a few minutes in each meeting building personal rapport so the team stays connected.”
TrainingPros offers to engage their remote employees to include many activities. We host company-wide happy hours on Zoom and share a mindfulness guide that helps virtual employees get centered. Our leader gives shoutouts at weekly town hall meetings to team members who go above and beyond to celebrate the company and individual achievements.
The efforts create a working environment that cultivates shared values. These include maintaining a work-life balance, nurturing personal career growth, and contributing to the communities where TrainingPros does business.
Founded in 1997, TrainingPros is a staffing agency that specializes in working closely with training and development departments of large organizations.
