Baker Tilly Recognized as Leader in Employee Learning and Development Programming
March 4, 2010
TYSONS CORNER, VA – For the second year in a row, accounting and advisory firm Baker Tilly has been named a winner of a global award recognizing organizations which have developed and implemented effective and efficient approaches to employee learning and development, resulting in significant business improvement.
The Learning Leaders Award program is sponsored by Bersin & Associates, a research and advisory firm focused on enterprise learning and talent management. The 25 winning organizations were selected based on detailed criteria compiled over years of research.
Known as Beers + Cutler prior to a December 2009 merger with Baker Tilly, the firm was selected as a winner in the Learning and Talent Initiative Excellence category for its comprehensive leadership development program. This program has created highly consistent processes that improve and integrate every area of talent management, including the use of competencies, and has contributed to the firm’s overall success. Last year, Baker Tilly was selected as a winner in the Operational Program Excellence category for its college internship orientation program.
“I’m extremely pleased that Baker Tilly continues to be recognized for our commitment to learning and development," said Ed Offterdinger, managing partner of Baker Tilly’s East region. “Being honored alongside some of the most prominent companies in the country indicates that we have put in place a first-class program. Our continued focus on leadership, learning and development illustrates the commitment we’ve made to our people, and it also has a very positive impact on the quality of service we provide to our clients."
“These Learning Leaders represent the very best of enterprise learning and talent management with high impact on the business," said Josh Bersin, president of Bersin & Associates. “We believe that all training and development professionals can gain valuable insight from their success stories."
The Bersin & Associates 2010 Learning Leaders include 15 organizations across technology, consumer products, media, financial services, telecommunications, real estate, and accounting and staffing services firms, as well as 10 providers of training and talent management solutions and services.
