TELUS training programs named tops in the world


Vancouver, B.C. – The American Society for Training and Development has recognized TELUS with a BEST award for having one of the world’s best employee learning and development programs.

TELUS is one of only two Canadian firms to earn a BEST award this year, and was recognized for having the third best enterprise learning program in the world. TELUS previously won BEST awards in 2003, 2004, and 2005.

“Ranking third in the world for enterprise learning programs is personally gratifying for our entire HR team, who have worked so hard to make constant learning part of TELUS’ core culture in the past decade,” said Andrew Turner, TELUS vice-president of Performance Culture. “As the labour market becomes ever more challenging, being known as somewhere employees have ongoing opportunities to learn and develop both personally and professionally will continue to set us apart and help us attract fantastic talent to TELUS.”

Last year, TELUS’ 32,000 employees took 361,000 online courses and 64,000 classroom courses.
