Security training and development awards for AlliedBarton.

: 12 February, 2008  (Company News)
Emergency situation and security service training along with leadership development expertise from AlliedBarton Security Services recognised in national awards.
AlliedBarton Security Services has received three prestigious awards. AlliedBarton has earned national recognition for its training programs for the third consecutive year on Training magazine's Top 125 list, and for its leadership development practices with the Corporate University Xchange and ASTD Excellence in Practice Awards.

'Individually, these awards are amazing,' explained Jim Gillece, AlliedBarton Chief People Officer and Senior Vice President of Human Capital Management. 'But together, this is an outstanding and unmatched accomplishment. The recognition of these three respected organizations fully confirms, without question, that AlliedBarton has taken training and leadership development to an entirely new level. We are proud to take the lead in this arena, as the importance of training and leadership development is paramount in every industry.'

'AlliedBarton was the first security services company honoured on the Training Top 125 list, which includes Fortune 500 companies and leading businesses that are household names,' said Gillece. 'We are honoured to once again be listed among the best of the best.'

Companies are selected for the Training Top 125 based on factors such as training programs, methods of employee evaluation and measurement, and financial commitment to training. Training magazine also conducted workplace surveys and analyzed a variety of training and personnel data from each applicant prior to selection as a Training Top 125 company.

The ASTD Excellence in Practice Award recognizes AlliedBarton's Leadership Boot Camp in the Workplace Learning and Development category. AlliedBarton also received two citations. The Excellence in Practice Awards are presented for proven practices that meet a demonstrated need, have appropriate design values, are aligned with other performance improvement initiatives, and deliver clear and measurable results.

The Corporate University Xchange Awards for Excellence and Innovation in Corporate Learning honour learning organisations whose programs improve employee and business performance. AlliedBarton competed against international and domestic companies and was recognized in two categories -- Launching, for its leadership development programs, and Alliances, for its partnership with the Centre for Talent Retention in the development of Leadership Boot Camp.

'Our company cannot grow, and we cannot offer the best possible service to our customers, if our employees and leaders do not grow,' Gillece said. 'We've established a culture of learning and development that is evident through the quality service we provide. Every position, beginning with the entry-level security officer, is an important step in that individual's career.'

These three awards confirm AlliedBarton's determination and dedication to continuously develop and apply effective training and leadership development programs for both its security officers and management. AlliedBarton employs nearly 100 full-time trainers and a Human Capital Management team that spearheads the company's leadership development initiatives.

'Training and leadership programs must constantly evolve,' Gillece said. 'As our clients' needs shift, we revise existing, or develop new, training programs to ensure our officers are prepared. Our leadership programs are fluid as well because we must give our leaders the appropriate tools to match their level of responsibility. Our offerings also evolve to utilize technological advancements and now include simulated environments and downloadable learning files.'

AlliedBarton provides comprehensive, cutting-edge training to all officers in a variety of formats as well as specialised training that addresses emergency situations and industry-specific security training.
