Rent-A-Center Recognized By Leading Learning And Development Publication

Rent-A-Center, Inc. (NASDAQ/NGS: RCII) was named to Training magazine’s annual list of 125 organizations recognized for preeminent training and development processes.

The recognition validates initiatives recently launched across Rent-A-Center’s 21,000-plus workforce.

Chief among these initiatives was the identification of high-performing stores, dubbed “Centers of Excellence,” to serve as central employee-training hubs within a specific geographical district.

Dynamic and culturally sensitive training in Mexico as well as timely operational presentations dubbed “Coach’s Clinics” were also central to Rent-A-Center’s success.

“We have been revolutionizing how our new hires learn the skills needed to deliver an exceptional customer experience,” said Trey Chapman, Vice President of Training and Development. “The recognition is gratifying and strengthens our resolve around our new training processes.”

Rent-A-Center’s ranking will be revealed during an awards gala slated for February 3, 2014 in San Diego, CA.
