This recognition is a testament to our commitment to continuous improvement and our highly intelligent and efficient team of effective sales professionals throughout our entire company.”
To assemble this year’s 50 Best list Selling Power’s research team created a thorough application where they gathered data across four main categories including:
- Compensation and benefits;
- Sales culture;
- Onboarding and sales enablement strategies; and
- Sales training and coaching
Companies were ranked in each of the categories above to determine the final list. Almost all the companies featured on the list invested in and offered thorough training specific to virtual selling in response to the pandemic. The list encompasses companies of all sizes – with sales forces ranging from fewer than 100 salespeople to companies with sales-force numbers in the thousands.
Selling Power magazine founder and publisher Gerhard Gschwandtner says, “The companies who earned a spot on this year’s list have truly world-class sales organizations. In addition to providing superior onboarding and ongoing sales training, they quickly pivoted their strategy to give their sales reps the tools and skills they needed to succeed in today’s digital, remote selling environment.”
