For the third year in a row, BankWest was named an APEX award winner for the company’s excellence in employer-sponsored training and development programs. Training Magazine, a business publication for Learning and Development professionals, recently announced the winners of the Training APEX Awards.
“The passion for learning and development burns brightly in the 2023 Training APEX Awards organizations,” explains Training Editor/Publisher Lorri Freifeld. “We salute these best-in-class organizations for their ability to consistently and agilely deliver stellar training in an ever-changing world while providing a culture that allows their people to grow and thrive at work.”
The APEX Awards ranking is based on myriad benchmarking statistics and a range of qualitative and quantitative factors, including: total training budget, percentage of payroll, scope of training programs provided, detailed formal and informal training programs, training linked to business goals, and business outcomes resulting from training.
“Part of BankWest’s mission is to provide an environment in which our employees can achieve career and personal success,” explains Becky Burke, Vice President of Learning & Strategic Development for BankWest. “We believe one of the first steps to reach that goal is providing our employees with the time, tools and training to deliver the highest level of customer care. It’s an honor to have our organization recognized at a national level for our commitment to employee development.”
