Release: Janek Performance Group Named Top 20 Sales Training Company for Fifth Straight Year

LAS VEGAS, NV, May 9, 2018—Janek Performance Group was named a Top 20 Sales Training Company for the fifth consecutive year by Selling Power. This distinction is awarded to sales training companies that excel in helping sales leaders improve the performance of their sales teams. The list appears in the May 2018 issue of Selling Power magazine, which will be available to subscribers on May 9th.

“We’re very excited to once again be named one of the top sales training companies by Selling Power,” said Nick Kane, managing partner of Janek Performance Group. “This award speaks to our driven team of best-in-class sales trainers, consultants, instructional designers and support team, who keep us on the cutting edge of best training practices and sales methods so that our customers can experience optimum impact and improvement in their sales results.”

According to Selling Power publisher and founder Gerhard Gschwandtner, sales training is a key area of competitive differentiation for B2B sales teams.

“To compete today, B2B sales leaders must invest in the right kind of sales training for their teams,” says Gschwandtner. “Most salespeople are weakest in the area of selling skills, and improvements can make a huge difference in revenue achievement. We are proud to announce this list of sales training companies that can help sales leaders sort through their options and select the best partner to help them improve.”

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. Additionally, they had a list of clients submit a brief survey on their experience working with the training provider and their satisfaction with results from the training effort.

The four 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

The award adds to the company’s other 2018 accolades – Stevie awards in Sales Training and Sales Consulting Practice of the Year for the third straight year, and its second consecutive listing as a Top 20 Sales Training Company by Training Industry.

“We value helping our customers achieve their sales goals,” Janek Performance Group managing partner Justin Zappulla said. “To win this award year after year shows our continued commitment to and sustained success in driving sales training and development within our customers’ organizations.”
