06-09-09 Peck Training Group Launches Environmentally-Friendly Business Program For Employee Learning & Development
E-based programs and interactive webinars allow clients to reap benefits of training while saving time, money, natural resources. Dallas – Peck Training Group, one of the country’s leading professional development training companies, today announced the launch of a comprehensive eco-friendly business initiative. This program, aptly named “Go Green, Go Global, Go Growth,” is the Company’s mantra and strategy for balancing environmental responsibilities with the ever-changing needs of its clients.“Environmental consciousness has become a critical issue in business today,” says Holly St. John Peck, President and CEO of Peck Training Group. “Peck Training Group and our clients are committed to being environmentally sensitive so we created a program that offers immediate impact. This initiative gives clients fast, global and cost-effective learning, and at the same time makes the world a greener place.”
The Program begins with aggressive recycling and electricity saving efforts across all of the Company’s offices, as well as ensuring that all classroom training materials are printed on 60 percent recycled paper. Go Green also encompasses the most significant component of the initiative – webinars and e-learning tools as supplements to face-to-face training sessions.
“These online enhancements enable clients to realize the benefits of professional development training while dramatically decreasing carbon output and paper consumption,” adds Peck. “And the program alleviates budget and travel challenges that everyone is facing today.”
The addition of webinars and e-learning tools to Peck Training Group enable clients with employees all over the world to come together and hear the same, consistent message but in a cost-effective venue. “In today’s uncertain economy, classroom training might be viewed as a luxury, but it continues to be critical to a company’s growth and success,” says Peck. “Adding this virtual component to our business enables clients to reap the benefits of professional development while still attending to the bottom line.”
The third component of Peck Training Group’s initiative refers to its popular professional developmental offering – business and personal coaching. According to Crane (2005), while training alone can improve business performance by 22 percent, training accompanied by coaching can improve performance by 88 percent.
“Just because a training session is over, doesn’t mean growth should end,” notes Peck. “In order for our clients to improve both professionally and personally, it’s critical for them to build upon those newly-acquired skills. This is where companies really see a large return on investment – through coaching.”
Go Growth also applies to Peck Training Group itself. This week, the Company has launched a rebranded and client-centric website. www.pecktraining.com will be constantly updated with industry articles, blogs by certified trainers and coaches, and tools that people can immediately employ towards improving their work and their lives.
