As a women-owned and operated company, TrainingPros is proud to celebrate the company’s diversity by announcing it has received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Greater Women’s Business Council (GWBC). GWBC is a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the largest certifying body of women-owned businesses in the United States.
“Earning our WBENC certification is an important step for us,” said Leigh Anne Lankford, owner and president of TrainingPros, a specialized staffing agency and training development company. “We are proud to be recognized for the diversity in our company, and to offer our clients enhanced value because of that diversity.”
WBENC’s national standard for women-owned certification, implemented by the GWBC, is a meticulous process involving an in-depth business review and a site inspection. The certification process confirms each business is at least 51% women-owned, operated and controlled.
Including women-owned businesses among their suppliers enables corporations and government agencies to demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.
For more than 20 years, the women-owned TrainingPros has served the training, eLearning and technical writing communities by providing qualified resources to clients on a contract basis. In addition to staffing services, TrainingPros provides custom eLearning and instructor-led training development for companies through managed services. TrainingPros has relationship managers in locations throughout the United States to serve both clients and consultants.
When learning leaders have more projects than people, TrainingPros can provide the right learning and development consultants so they can start their projects with confidence.
Founded in 1997, WBENC is the nation’s leader in women’s business development and the leading third-party certifier of women-owned and operated businesses, with more than 13,000 certified Women’s Business Enterprises, 14 national Regional Partner Organizations, and over 300 Corporate Members. More than 1,000 corporations representing America’s most prestigious brands as well as many states, cities, and other entities accept WBENC Certification.
