NATIONAL OFFICE – For the eighth consecutive year, Training magazine has named BKD CPAs & Advisors to its list of the world’s most successful learning and development (L&D) departments. BKD is ranked 24 on the Top 100 list (formerly Top 125), which grades organizations by the effectiveness of their employee development programs. BKD’s ranking of 24 shatters its previous record-high ranking of 52.
“Part of BKD’s commitment to providing Unmatched Client Service® is our focus on strategic training and development. BKD’s L&D team is fully focused on making sure each BKD Trusted Advisor™ has the training and resources they need to provide cutting-edge solutions to clients,” said BKD CEO Ted Dickman.
To be considered for inclusion in the Training Top 100, companies complete a detailed application. Companies are scored on qualitative and quantitative factors, including training programs and scope, training infrastructure and delivery and training budget, among other items.
“BKD aspires to create rewarding career opportunities for its employees, as evidenced by our mission statement,” said BKD Chief Marketing Officer Greg Cole. “By providing programs that enhance our team’s technical expertise and professional development, we can strive to achieve our mission. This honor reflects our Learning & Development team’s passion for the continual 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.
