Maersk Line was named the world’s #1 organization for employee development in the Association for Talent Development’s (ATD) 2016 BEST Awards at a ceremony held in Washington, D.C.

 
Central to the win was Maersk Line senior leaders’ commitment to people development and a strong partnership between Human Resources, global functions and project teams in building specialization and functional excellence to drive Maersk Line’s strategy. This includes, among others, building and implementing leadership development, digitization, commercial excellence, customer service and sales excellence programs.
 
“It is a great honor to be considered best-in-class at developing our people, who are the reason why we remain an industry leader,” said Ulf Hahnemann, Chief Human Resources Officer. “We are now more than ever committed to continue our world-class approach to talent development.”
 
This is the second consecutive win for the company, having placed fourth in the 2015 BEST Awards. This year, Maersk Line competed against nearly 150 companies from 13 countries.
 
Prior to the ceremony, Maersk Line and 36 other winning organizations were invited to share their best practices with other training and talent development practitioners at the “Learn from the BEST” conference.
 
The BEST Awards recognize organizations that demonstrate enterprise-wide success through talent development. “Creating innovative, vibrant learning cultures and developing talent in ways that clearly contribute to strategic business goals, are hallmarks of ATD BEST winners,” said Tony Bingham, ATD President and CEO. “They get it. Leaders in these organizations value the impact that talent development achieves, because they know that having a knowledgeable and skilled workforce drives success.”
 
Every organization submitted quantitative and qualitative information to ATD about talent development practices and programs. Applications were assessed in a blind review by members of the BEST Awards advisory committee, a select group of experts in the field.
