Dollar General Earns Top Spot on Training Magazine’s Top 125 List!

Dollar General’s Training and Development team took home Training magazine’s top honor, earning the first-place honor on its 2019 Top 125 list! Not only is this Dollar General's second consecutive year to be placed in the magazine's prestigious top-five honorees, it is also Dollar General's eighth consecutive year on the Top 125 list. Training magazine’s Training Top 125 list aims to recognize organizations that champion training and employee development tied to corporate strategic goals and business impact.

“This year, our strategy remained focused on talent selection and employee development through great onboarding, training and open communication,” said Bob Ravener, Dollar General’s executive vice president and chief people officer. “Our team influences every level of the company with a practical and innovative approach to training. As a result, we deliver approximately 1.7 million training hours each year to our employees, and we help them further develop their talents and hone specific skills and experiences to grow their careers to new heights of success.” 

According to Training magazine, the Top 125 rankings are determined by assessing a range of qualitative and quantitative factors, including financial investment in employee training and development, the scope of training programs, how closely training and development efforts are linked to business goals and objectives and their effectiveness in terms of business impact.

Dollar General’s training and development programs are guided by the Company’s mission of Serving Others. In that spirit, Dollar General continues to support approximately 135,000 employees reach new career heights through its best-in-class training, career guidance and additional resources to support employees’ career development.
