Keller Williams Named a Top Training Organization Worldwide Across All Industries

For third consecutive year, Keller Williams is recognized as a world leader in training!

Keller Williams was recognized by Training magazine, the leading business publication for learning and development professionals, as the No. 2  training organization across all industries in the world.


Keller Williams also received an Outstanding Training Initiative Award for its Leadership Week training, a course offering focused on the development of business leaders.

“We are honored to be named as a top training organization,” said Chris Heller, CEO, Keller Williams. “At our core, we’re an education-based, innovation-focused organization. And we’re committed to providing our associates with the best training to grow their businesses throughout the world.”

On February 15, Keller Williams received the honor at Training magazine’s annual awards gala in Orlando, Fla. For the third consecutive year, Keller Williams placed in the Top 5 on the Training 125, which ranks companies’ excellence in employer-sponsored training and development programs. The company has also previously placed on the Training 125, outside the past three years.

“Everything we do comes from our top associates so we know it works at the highest level,” said Bryon Ellington, chief learning officer, Keller Williams. “We’re bringing the best minds in real estate together to share, collaborate and learn from each other.”

The Training Top 125 ranking is based on myriad benchmarking statistics such as total training budget; percentage of payroll; number of training hours per employee program; goals, evaluation, measurement, and workplace surveys; hours of training per employee annually; and detailed formal programs.

“At Keller Williams, we’re not only an open-books company, we’re an open-learning company,” said Dianna Kokoszka, CEO, KW MAPS Coaching. “The leaders of our company have fostered a culture of collaboration because we know that together everyone achieves more.”

The Training Top 125 ranking is also determined by assessing a range of qualitative and quantitative factors, including financial investment in employee development, the scope of development programs, and how closely such development efforts are linked to business goals and objectives.

“Because of our focus on training, we attract more new agents than other real estate franchises,” said John Davis, president, Keller Williams. “As a commissioned-based industry, our challenge is to guide thousands of new associates through our training programs so they get into production quickly and build their businesses. This creates more opportunities for them and their families.”
