NEW YORK, N.Y., March 6, 2019 – The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America® (Guardian), one of the nation’s largest mutual life insurers and a leading provider of employee benefits, has been recognized as one of Training magazine’s 2019 Top 125 training organizations. This is the third consecutive year Guardian has been recognized for providing their employees and financial representatives with the necessary tools for professional and personal development to connect with customers and enhance skills. In 2019, Guardian is ranked at number 48 up from number 70 in 2018.

“At Guardian, people are the heart of all we do. We are investing heavily in learning and development initiatives to help our employees become more digital, agile and consumer-focused. Our success depends on continuing to drive innovation and helping our people develop the skills they need to thrive,” stated Diana Scott, Chief Human Resources Officer. “It’s the only way we’ll be able to protect futures, secure lives and be a Guardian for our consumers, community and each other.”

Now in its 19th year, the Training Top 125 is the only awards program that ranks companies unsurpassed in harnessing human capital. 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 2019 Training Top 125 winners highlight the importance and value of training—to their organizations, to their employees, and to their industries and communities,” said Training magazine Editor-in-Chief Lorri Freifeld. “They are on the leading edge as they effectively deliver employee training that pushes the needle forward to meet organizational goals while developing an engaged, creative, and committed workforce. Congratulations to these standout organizations for their stellar dedication to learning and employee growth.”
