NATIONAL OFFICE – Ted Dickman, BKD, LLP chief executive officer, is pleased to announce that for the third consecutive year, BKD has been named to Training magazine’s Top 125 list, which ranks companies by the effectiveness of their employee development programs.
“This award is a tribute to the power of our strategic training and development as part of our commitment to providing unmatched client service,” Dickman said. “BKD is honored to receive this recognition for the third straight year.”
This is the 16th year for the Training Top 125. To be considered, companies complete a detailed application. Judges determine the finalists by assessing a variety of qualitative and quantitative factors, including financial investment in employee development, development programs and how closely programs relate to business goals and objectives.
“Part of BKD’s mission is to create rewarding career opportunities for its employees,” said Greg Cole, the firm’s director of growth and development. “One way we do that is by providing programs that help build our team’s technical expertise and professional development. This award reflects the passion we have for the continual pursuit of excellence—in service to our people and our clients.”
BKD’s training and development programs include BKD University—an online learning portal that provides personnel access to a range of educational content, including technical training and videos about leadership, ethics, client service and technology. The firm also regularly conducts Camp BKD, a weeklong orientation providing technical and nontechnical training to enhance client service behaviors and results.
