Vistage International Recognized Among the World’s Best in Training Excellence

SAN DIEGO, February 15, 2012 – Vistage International is among an elite group of 125 companies acknowledged for its training and development programs.  Training magazine, the leading business publication for learning and development professionals, named Vistage among its Top 125, a prestigious list that includes companies such as Microsoft, UPS, Verizon, Bank of America, Loews Hotels and Vanguard.

“It’s an honor to be recognized among an elite group of companies that excel in training and development,” said Michael Molina, Vistage Chief Human Resources Officer. “It’s also a validation of the tremendous value of executive peer advisory groups and our Chair community who help Vistage members become more effective leaders.”

At a black-tie gala held in Atlanta, as part of its Training 2012 Conference & Expo, Vistage learned that it climbed to number 81 on the list after being ranked 117 last year – its first year applying for the honor.

Now in its 11th year, the Training Top 125 is the only report that ranks companies unsurpassed in harnessing human capital. The awards are based on three different criteria: training program/scope, training infrastructure and delivery, and evaluation/metrics.
