CONSHOHOCKEN, PA--(Marketwire - February 2, 2010) - AlliedBarton Security Services, the industry's premier provider of highly trained security personnel, for the fifth consecutive year has earned recognition as one of Training magazine's Top 125 training companies. Training magazine, the leading business publication for learning and development professionals, initially honored AlliedBarton five years ago as the first security services company to make the prestigious list. This year's Top 125 leading training organizations were revealed during the awards gala held February 1 at the Training 2010 Conference & Expo in San Diego, CA.

"Quality training programs are critical to our employees' growth and development, and to our ability to provide the high level of security service our customers rely on every day."
The Training Top 125 is 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.
