HARRISBURG, Pa., Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Capital BlueCross has ascended to No. 3 globally, up from No. 10 last year, on the Training Magazine annual list of Top 125 companies for employee training. Training Magazine is the leading business publication for learning and development professionals and publishes the only report that ranks company employee training programs worldwide.

"Earning the ranking of No. 3 this year recognizes that we didn't rest on our laurels after achieving the No. 10 spot in 2013," said Gary D. St. Hilaire, Capital BlueCross president & CEO. "We are in an ever-changing industry and, to stay on top, we are fully committed to leadership and talent development. This commitment is a reflection of our unwavering dedication to serving our customers with excellence."

During the past several years, Capital BlueCross has placed an increasing emphasis on employee learning and leadership development, particularly as the business undergoes changes related to health care reform. Through the design and implementation of a comprehensive talent management program, the company is developing leaders across the organization with skills and abilities to execute its current business strategy and chart a successful course for the future.

Each Top 125 company on the list was measured on qualitative and quantitative data, such as training tied to business objectives, provable results, number of trainers, employee turnover and retention, leadership development, tuition assistance, training technology and infrastructure, certification, and training budget and percentage of payroll. An outside research and statistical data company scored the data.

Capital BlueCross joins an impressive list of honorees representing some of the largest and most well-known companies in the world. For a complete list of the 125 companies ranked this year, visit www.trainingmag.com/trgmag-article/2014-training-top-125-winners.
