Waldinger Named Champion of Learning
January 26, 2017
The Waldinger Corporation has been named a Champion of Learning by the Association for Talent Development (ATD). “We are very honored to receive national level recognition for the successful efforts of our training and development area,” says Dan Deike, Waldinger Director of Safety and Employee Development.
Waldinger’s recognition follows its effective participation in ATD’s “Employee Learning Week” initiative, which promotes the vital link between developing employees’ skills and achieving organizational results. “During the first week of December, we used our intranet to promote the value of life-long learning and to share how the training and development programs we have built at Waldinger are being acknowledged by others in the training industry for their innovation,” says Paul Smith, Waldinger Corporate Training Manager.
ATD’s research shows that healthy organizations invest in growing the knowledge and skills of their workforce. “Increasingly, business leaders realize that the most important asset in our knowledge economy is talent; and a skilled workforce is the key to realizing results,” says Tony Bingham, ATD President and CEO.
Waldinger's longevity of more than 110 years as one of the nation’s premier mechanical contractors is sustained by two crucial assets: its well-treated customers and its well-supported people. “We are proud to be recognized by ATD as a Champion of Learning, and even more proud of the continued growth and development of our people,” says Jon Koehn, President – Service Division.
