February 22, 2023 – Kimball Midwest again has been recognized for excellence in its training and development programs by a leading publication.

Training magazine ranked Kimball Midwest among the 105 winners of its 2023 Training APEX Awards, which were handed out earlier this month during a gala in Orlando.

“We consistently focus on long-term vision, not short-term thinking,” Kimball Midwest Director of Sales Development Kate Callison said. “Part of that focus on the future is our dedication to training: We make sure our associates have the knowledge and skills they need to get the job done every day.”

The APEX Awards ranking is based on 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 being linked to business/business unit goals
  • Business outcomes resulting from training

“The passion for learning and development burns brightly in the 2023 Training APEX Awards organizations,” Training Editor/Publisher Lorri Freifeld said. “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.”
