Stocks in this article: NSP

Insperity, Inc. (NYSE: NSP), a leading provider of human resources and business performance solutions for America’s best businesses, today announced its first graduating class of Certified Business Performance Advisors through the C.T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston.

“Our Certified Business Performance Advisors are a new breed of professionals specifically equipped to address the increasing complexities of running a business,” said Jay E. Mincks, Insperity executive vice president of sales and marketing. “These 76 graduates of our first class demonstrate our commitment to help businesses succeed so communities prosper.”

The Certified Business Performance Advisor program includes a rigorous curriculum of courses ranging from finance and statistical analytics to business ethics and management taught by faculty from the Bauer College. The 80-hour, professional level program launched in fall 2011, is designed to provide Insperity advisors with a broader base of knowledge coupled with a deeper understanding of an array of critical business solutions.

“This program is innovative and trailblazing,” said Bauer Dean Latha Ramchand, also a professor of finance. “It is our goal at the college to serve as a resource for the business community to come back and renew their knowledge and bring additional value to their organizations. Insperity is the perfect example of a company that understands the benefits of investing in its most valuable asset – its human capital.”

The newly certified Business Performance Advisors completed nine eight-hour modules of in-class and Web-based instruction in accounting and financial reporting, leadership and human resources, strategy, finance, business development and customer management, business analytics and statistics, management information system and decision support, operations, and business law, ethics and values.

The coursework culminated in an all-day business simulation that focused on the crucial issues of why some companies succeed and others fail. Insperity Business Performance Advisors were divided into teams to run businesses and compete head-to-head for market share and revenue. Participants gained practical experience from the exercise – confronting business issues, constraints and obstacles, and developing and achieving appropriate goals, strategies and tactics.
