Learning and development are the fundamental keys to success in the security services industry. AlliedBarton Security Services, a provider of security personnel, has been serving the industry for more than 50 years through its superior security officer services to protect people, homes and businesses.
The company was recently recognized as the only security officer services company on the LearningElite list by Chief Learning Officer magazine for the third consecutive year. AlliedBarton celebrates its continued recognition for its many programs as the most honored security services company.
"We are honored that our leadership program and practices, and military recruitment commitment have also been widely recognized," Jim Gillece, senior vice president of Human capital management, chief people officer, AlliedBarton, said in a statement.
While the security officer is the face of the security industry, the support system behind those officers needs to be extensive to truly provide exceptional service. With ten awards in the last two years, AlliedBarton continues to raise the bar on developing programs that can set the standard of excellence for the physical security sector.
"AlliedBarton's clients value our commitment to excellence in all aspects of our organization," Gillece added.
Training is one area where AlliedBarton has received much recognition. In 2012, AlliedBarton reached the completion of one million training courses on the AlliedBarton EDGE since its launch in 2009. The company was recently recognized by Military Spouse magazine and GI Jobs magazine for hiring military personnel. Leadership awards in 2012 include the Visionary Award from the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, and the Leadership 500 by Leadership Excellence magazine.
In its announcement, AlliedBarton also emphasized that it will continue to pursue new awards that demonstrate its leadership position in many areas.
The LearningElite program honors the best organizations for learning and development. Based upon the five dimensions of learning strategy, leadership commitment, learning execution, internal learning impact and external business performance results, the LearningElite program serves as an integrated framework for managing a learning organization.
