Big Four Make Training Magazine's Top 125 List

The Big Four dominate this year’s Training Magazine Top 125 companies list, with PricewaterhouseCoopers coming in at number one, followed by KPMG in the number two spot.

Deloitte enters the magazine’s Hall of Fame, after making it into the top ten for four consecutive years. Ernst & Young was already a Hall of Fame company.

Companies enter the competition, which ranks organizations based on their financial commitment, training programs offered, metrics measured, workplace surveys, turnover and new employee referrals.

Training Editor-in-Chief Lorri Freifeld says companies in the top ten are known for providing quality, innovative, excellent training programs. “If you chose any company in the top ten you’re guaranteed a good training experience,” she says.

But why do so many accounting firms make the list? “Compliance,” Freifeld answers. Given the expertise required of accounting firm employees and their need to comply with so many rules and regulations, it makes sense that accounting firms would put time and effort into training.
