CHG Healthcare Services, a leader in healthcare staffing and the largest provider of locum tenens physicians in the United States, was named No. 4 on Training magazine's 2015 Training Top 125 list, which ranks companies' excellence in employer-sponsored training and development programs. This is the second consecutive year that CHG has ranked fourth and the company's seventh year on the list.
In addition to improving technical skills, CHG's training programs are built to achieve a "return on culture," which increases participants' satisfaction and engagement and leads to better business results and a stronger company culture.
"We're excited to again be honored as one of the top five companies on this prestigious list. It validates our continued learning and development efforts and our focus on Putting People First," said Kevin Ricklefs, CHG's senior vice president of talent management. "It's nice to be recognized for our world-class training efforts."
On average, each CHG employee receives nearly 100 hours of training each year through a variety of programs, including a four-day orientation for new hires, in-depth training for sales employees, and courses for new and seasoned leaders that span several months. Less-formal development opportunities, including leadership book clubs and skill development classes, are also available to all employees.
"We are committed to our people's continuous development and believe they should play an active role in their own growth and learning," Ricklefs said. "Our training teams help strengthen both current and future leaders so we can continue to be the best in the healthcare staffing industry."
