COLUMBIA, Mo., Nov. 27, 2019 /CNW/ -- StorageMart joins global giants such as AT&T, Mastercard, and Walmart on Training magazine's rankings of the top 125 companies in the world for employee training and development. Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, the ranking is based on a number of benchmarking statistics for the industry.
When asked about the honor, StorageMart Managing Director, Communications and Training, Garrett Harrington, said, "This is an enormous honor for StorageMart. None of it would have been possible without the effort put forth from every department of the company and the talented group in our training department. The buy-in and collaboration between departments to innovate and achieve new initiatives truly sets us apart."
"StorageMart's training department upped its game with innovative content creation and delivery methods that engaged learners and sparked behavior change, while helping to move the needle on key corporate initiatives," notes Training magazine Editor-in-Chief Lorri Freifeld. "The collaboration between the training department and senior leadership as detailed in the Training Top 125 application was particularly impressive."
