AlliedBarton Security Services Wins Corporate University Xchange Award

CONSHOHOCKEN, PA--(Marketwire - May 5, 2009) - AlliedBarton Security Services, the industry's premier provider of highly trained security personnel, was recognized by Corporate University Xchange (CorpU) at their 10th Annual Awards for Excellence and Innovation. AlliedBarton accepted their award in the measurement category, which recognizes companies that create tools and techniques to measure the value of an organization's investment in learning.

AlliedBarton received the award for their Talent Lifecycle Value (TLV) model. The TLV is a measurement tool developed as part of ongoing effort to better manage and support the company's talent.

As the longest-running independent evaluation of corporate learning and talent programs, the Awards establish high standards in eight important learning areas -- alignment, alliances, corporate/college partnerships, launching, leadership development, learning technologies, marketing and measurement. Participation in this year's program exceeded all previous years, including a 50% increase in the total number of applicants, significant representation by companies worldwide and the most diverse population of companies by size and industry.

The CorpU Awards for Excellence and Innovation salute corporate and government learning organizations that create exciting, impactful programs that result in measurable improvements in employee and business performance. To celebrate the awards, the Corporate University Xchange is placing a full-page advertisement in Fortune Magazine listing the winners, including AlliedBarton.

"We are the only security company to ever win this prestigious award, and have done so for two consecutive years," said Jim Gillece, AlliedBarton Chief People Officer and Senior Vice President of Human Capital Management. "We are proud to set the pace for learning and development initiatives in this industry. The value of employee engagement and development in any personnel services businesses can not be denied and at AlliedBarton we are proud to make our people our priority."
