For the fourth consecutive year, ABF Freight System is listed among Training magazine’s Training Top 125, which ranks companies’ excellence in employer-sponsored training and development programs.
“ABF has a long-standing commitment to recruiting, training and equipping dedicated supply chain professionals,” ABF President and CEO Roy Slagle said in a statement. “Backed by ongoing training support, ABF employees are given the power to serve the specific needs of a diverse group of customers. It is always gratifying to have our efforts recognized by a prestigious publication like Training magazine.”
ABF is one of the nation’s largest less-than-truckload carriers.
Training magazine recognized the 2013 Training Top 125 winners with crystal awards and revealed their rankings during a black-tie gala during the Training 2013 Conference & Expo at the Walt Disney World Coronado Springs Resort. Now in its 13th year, the Training Top 125 is the only list that ranks companies unsurpassed in harnessing human capital.
The Top 125 includes ranking based on benchmarking statistics such as total training budget; percentage of payroll; number of training hours per employee program; goals, evaluation, measurement, and workplace surveys; hours of training per employee annually; and detailed formal programs. Ranking is determined by assessing a range of qualitative and quantitative factors, including financial investment in employee development, the scope of development programs and how closely such development efforts are linked to business goals and objectives.
