C&A Industries, LLC, a national leader in staffing and recruiting, has been recognized for excellence in employee learning by Training magazine. The Omaha-based company has been ranked #9 in the publication’s annual Training Top 125, which identifies organizations with the most successful employer sponsored training and development programs worldwide. Rankings of the 125 leading companies were announced Feb. 24, 2020 during the Training 2020 Conference & Expo in Orlando, Fl.
Training is the leading business publication for learning & development and human resources professionals. This is the second year C&A has been included in the Training Top 125. The company ranked #86 in 2019.
C&A is the parent company to workforce solution firms Aureus Group®, Aureus Medical Group®, AurStaff®, Celebrity Staff, and FocusOne Solutions®, as well as non-staffing affiliates AurTravel® and AurHomes®. C&A employs over 700 in its corporate and regional offices.
In Oct. 2019, C&A was acquired by healthcare staffing leader Medical Solutions. The deal represented the largest acquisition of a healthcare staffing company in the industry’s history. Medical Solutions is also headquartered in Omaha.
“At C&A, we strive to provide an environment that inspires our employees to become who they want to be as people, at work and at home,” said Craig Meier, CEO, Medical Solutions. “The culture of learning that’s alive within our workplace is meaningful, impactful, and embraces employees at all levels and in all roles. And when we put people first, success follows.”
The Training Top 125 ranking is based on a combination of benchmarking statistics such as total training budget; percentage of payroll; number of training hours per employee program; hours of training per employee annually; detailed formal programs; learning goals; Kirkpatrick Level 3 and 4 evaluations; and business outcomes measurement. Rankings are determined by assessing statistics combined with such factors as the scope of programming and the correlation between training & development efforts and business goals, objectives, and results.
“To be ranked in the top 10 globally for employee learning and development is an incredible achievement,” added Meier. “We look forward to continuing to build on this program as our companies come together, with heart and soul, as one.”
C&A offers a broad range of initial and continued education for employees at all levels within its organization, from entry level roles through management and executive level leadership. In addition to customized education developed by its training staff, including accredited new hire sales training; multi-tiered professional development curricula; and support staff, management preparation, and leadership training, the firm incorporates leading concepts, training modules, and industry experts into its offerings.
Prior to its acquisition by Medical Solutions, C&A ranked as the 34th largest staffing firm in the U.S. for 2019. C&A has been named among the Best Places to Work in Omaha in the large company category eight times and received the initiative’s Sustained Excellence Award in 2019.
