Janek Performance Group Takes Top 20 Sales Training Company Honors for Seventh Straight Year

Las Vegas-based sales performance firm is named to Selling Power magazine’s renowned list for seventh year in a row

LAS VEGAS, NV, May 20, 2020—Janek Performance Group has been listed as a Top 20 Sales Training Company for the seventh consecutive year by Selling Power. This distinction honors the world’s best-in-class sales training companies for excellence in helping sales leaders improve the performance of their sales teams. The list appears in the May/June 2020 issue of Selling Power magazine, which is published digitally.

“We’re proud of once again being named to Selling Power’s Top 20 Sales Training Company list,” said Nick Kane, managing partner of Janek Performance Group. “It speaks to our continued commitment to providing customized sales performance solutions as well as rolling out new, innovative training programs such as Selling Virtually, which has been very well received by our customers. Our training programs drive sales results and enable long-lasting, beneficial behavior change.”

According to Selling Power publisher and founder Gerhard Gschwandtner, sales training is more important than ever as salespeople adjust to selling during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“There could not be a better time to invest in sales training,” says Gschwandtner. “No matter what market you sell to, your salespeople need the right skills to close big deals while social distancing and working from home. The sales leaders who understand the importance of sales training are already on the upswing. Those who wait to invest in their team won’t be able to catch up.”

All companies on the Top 20 list submitted a comprehensive application that included a detailed listing of their offerings for both training and retention, innovative solutions and services they have developed, and their company’s unique contributions to the sales training marketplace.

The main criteria used when comparing applicants and selecting the companies to include on this year’s list were:

  1. Depth and breadth of training offered
  2. Innovative offerings (specific training courses, methodology, or delivery methods)
  3. Contributions to the sales training market
  4. Strength of client satisfaction

Selling Power magazine editors say the companies on the 2020 Top 20 Sales Training Companies list represent the best potential to help sales teams improve their performance and remain competitive in any selling environment. See the list at sellingpower.com.

The award adds to Janek’s other 2020 accolades – a Gold Stevie for Best Sales Training Program of the Year and Top 20 Sales Training Company distinction from Training Industry.

“We believe in the power of our research-based and field-tested approach, and to be named a Top 20 sales training company year after year validates that core principle,” Janek Performance Group managing partner Justin Zappulla said. “We devote ourselves to completely understanding our clients’ unique needs and tailor our solutions to help them achieve their objectives and more. I am proud of these accomplishments, which are made possible by the dedication of our entire organization.”
