The company rose to No. 42 on the list, from No. 82 in 2009. The magazine publishes an annual ranking of organizations that excel in employee training and development.
In commending Pitney Bowes, Training cited the company’s Certified Mailstream Consultant program as one that links customer applications to Pitney Bowes solutions, helping participants “leverage the necessary postal and carrier regulations to not only generate effective ROI, but also to educate customers on postal requirements” for successful direct mail results.

Training magazine determines the Top 125 companies by measuring quantitative and qualitative data. For the quantitative portion, an outside research company scores each organization in five different areas: training program/scope; tuition reimbursement; training infrastructure and delivery; evaluation/metrics; and human resources. Qualitative data includes demonstrable results, progress of programs, innovation, success factors, training strategically linked to business goals, and corporate commitment to training, among others.
