Recognition for UniFirst Development Program

Company News, Americas, Talent, Service Provider News
UniFirst Corporation's LEAP (Leadership, Education, and Performance) management development program has received a Bronze Stevie Award.

 

The Stevie Awards which attract more than 12,000 entrants, recognise the positive contribution of organisations and working professionals with seven, separate awards:  the Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards, the German Stevie Awards, The American Business Awards, The International Business Awards, the Stevie Awards for Great Employers, the Stevie Awards for Women in Business, and the Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service. 

 

Unifirst won recognition for a Sales & Customer Service award for its LEAP training initiative which offers 18 months' hands-on training at multiple locations in North America to employees who exhibit high management potential.

 

The award was presented at the 13th annual Stevie Awards which were held at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas which were attended by more than 700 senior business executives representing several companies in February.

 
Discussing the award, Elita Nicholson, a member of UniFirst's talent acquisition team which collected the award, said: 

"We're so honored to be recognized with this award for our LEAP program and management recruiting efforts.

 

"The program is a new way of hiring at the managerial level, prompted by the need to fill these important roles with qualified internal applicants who have the right skills and a comprehensive understanding of our business.

 

"It's gratifying to see how each of our first LEAP recruits has developed and is already making a positive impact on our company and culture."
