Transplace, a leading provider of transportation management services and logistics technology, today announced that the company was ranked third on Chief Executive magazine’s 2014 “Best Private Company for Leaders” list – up from its fifth place ranking in 2013. The annual ranking of the best companies for leaders is based on a survey of large, private organizations with minimum revenue of $1 billion worldwide and their utilization of best practices in leadership development, and was featured in the January/February 2014 issue of Chief Executive magazine. Deloitte and PricewaterhouseCoopers were ranked one and two respectively.
Companies were evaluated on four criteria: Having a formal leadership process in place; the commitment level of the CEO to the leadership development program; the depth of the leadership funnel as measure by the percentage of management positions filled by internal candidates; and, the number of other companies that report recruiting from the company being evaluated.
