LAS VEGAS, NV, May 24, 2016—Janek Performance Group announced that it has been included on the 2016 list of the Top 20 Sales Training Companies that excel in helping sales leaders improve the performance of their sales teams. The list appears in the June issue of Selling Power magazine, which will be available to subscribers the first week of June. This marks the third consecutive year, Janek Performance Group has been included in Selling Power’s prestigious list of top sales training companies.

“We’re beyond humbled to have once again been included on Selling Power’s list of Top 20 Sales Training Companies,” said Justin Zappulla, managing partner at Janek Performance Group. “It’s wonderful to receive this recognition by an independent body of experts as a result of their evaluation into our sales training programs.”

According to Selling Power publisher and founder Gerhard Gschwandtner, sales training is a vital component of a high-performance sales organization.

“Sales training is a competitive differentiator for top-performing sales teams,” says Gschwandtner. “Sales leaders should use this list of the Top 20 Sales Training Companies to see which companies are offering the best and most advanced offerings available on the market today.”

Each sales-training company featured on this year’s list offers sales organizations the following benefits.

  • Provides a consultative experience.
  • Quantifies results with metrics.
  • Offers customization and post-training support.
  • Has a documented track record of ROI and customer satisfaction.

The four main criteria Selling Power considered in the selection of their list are as follows:

3) Contributions to the sales-training market
4) Strength of client satisfaction

In addition to making Selling Power’s list, Janek Performance Group was also named to Training Industry’s “Sales Training Companies Watch List” for the sixth consecutive year, and was honored twice during the 2016 Stevie® Awards for Sales & Customer Service in March, receiving a Silver Stevie Award for Sales Training Practice of the Year, and a Bronze Stevie Award for Sales Consulting Practice of the Year.
