Pool of 650,000 Candidates

HP Solutions was selected for dual DiversityBusiness.com awards from a pool of more than 650,000 eligible candidates. Past awardees have gone on to win multimillion dollar contracts from Fortune 100 companies and government agencies. HP Solutions is the only IT training firm to win dual honors this year.

The market for IT training is growing, aided by government stimulus funds. U.S. organizations spent $134 billion on employee learning and development in 2007, according to the American Society for Training and Development. All too often, however, IT end-user training is the last consideration for new system implementation.

Bottom-line benefits of software upgrades are lost if end-users fail to understand or embrace the new technology. To be successful, companies must determine their training requirements early on. A scalable end-user training strategy ensures the cost-effective and timely deployment of systems and guarantees higher adoption among end-users.
