“At Guardian, we are deliberately considering the future of work and the impact of AI and technology on our business.  We are investing heavily in training and reskilling because we know that when our employees thrive, so do we.

The Top 125 ranking is determined by assessing a range of qualitative and quantitative factors, including financial investment in employee training and development, the scope of training programs, how closely training and development efforts are linked to business goals and objectives, and their effectiveness in terms of business impact. 

“The 2018 Training Top 125 winners are game changers,” Training Magazine Editor-in-Chief Lorri Freifeld said. “They constantly look for innovative ways to effectively deliver and measure employee training, and they are rewarded with an engaged, passionate workforce and organizational success.
