CHICAGO, IL, February 25, 2019For the ninth consecutive year, Vi, a national developer, owner and operator of high-end retirement communities across the United States, has been named to Training magazine’s annual “Training Top 125” list recognizing companies’ excellence in employer-sponsored training and development programs. This year, Vi ranked #41 on the list marking the company’s third consecutive year in the Top 50, further reinforcing its position as an employer dedicated to fostering employees’ personal and professional growth.

“We are honored to again receive this prestigious award and be ranked among Training magazine’s Top 50,” said Judy Whitcomb, Senior Vice President of Human Resources, Learning, and Organizational Development at Vi. “Our employees are the heart of all Vi communities, and nothing brings our organization greater satisfaction than helping them ascend to new levels of personal and professional achievement. By investing in the development of our employees, we are investing in the lives of our residents.”

From Rosetta Stone classes and tuition reimbursement to management and leadership programs, Vi provides employees with the tools they need to build fulfilling careers.

Training magazine’s Training Top 125 Award winners represent the organizations with the most successful learning and development programs in the world—and the Top 125 has been the premier learning industry awards program for 18 years. Based on benchmarks such as total training budget, hours of training per employee annually, business outcomes measurement and more, the ranking is determined by assessing a range of factors, including financial investment in employee development, the scope of development programs, how closely such development efforts are linked to business goals and objectives, and the results they achieve.

This year’s winners were honored at the Training 2019 Conference & Expo on Monday, February 25th, at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, Florida.
