BKD Earns National Honors for Employee Training, Development
NATIONAL OFFICE – For the ninth consecutive year, BKD CPAs & Advisors has been named one of the top organizations in the country for internal learning and development (L&D) by Training magazine.
Training magazine is the leading business publication for L&D professionals. The outlet’s newly rebranded Training APEX Awards (formerly the Training Top 100) ranks companies’ excellence in employer-sponsored training and development programs.
BKD is ranked No. 22 on the 2022 list, which grades organizations by the effectiveness of their employee development programs. BKD was ranked No. 24 last year. The ranking is based on a range of qualitative and quantitative factors, including training programs and scope, training infrastructure and delivery, training budget, business outcomes resulting from training, and more.
“We salute these best-in-class organizations for their laser-focused commitment to learning and development, their brilliance in continuing to successfully deliver training despite the ongoing pandemic, and their unwavering belief that Training Matters—and not only can it change the world, but transform it,” said Training editor and publisher Lorri Freifeld.
“It’s an honor to again be recognized for helping our fellow BKDers advance their knowledge, skills and careers,” said Chief Marketing Officer Greg Cole. “Enhancing our colleagues’ technical expertise and professional development is a true passion for our Learning & Development team as we continue our pursuit of excellence in service to our people and our clients.”
BKD’s L&D programs include BKD University (BKDU)—an online learning portal—and live and virtual training sessions. BKD live and virtual sessions, along with the materials in BKDU, focus on enhancing technical knowledge, skills and abilities, as well as continual improvement as it relates to leadership, ethics, client service and technology.
