Training magazine is a 48-year-old professional development magazine that advocates training and workforce development as a business tool. The magazine delves into management issues such as leadership and succession planning, HR issues such as recruitment and retention, and training issues such as learning theory, on-the-job skills assessments and aligning core workforce competencies to enhance the bottom line impact of training and development programs. Written for training, human resources and business management professionals in all industries, Training combines a paid circulation with qualified, controlled recipients to deliver the strongest circulation in the market.
Training magazine is currently published by The Lakewood Media Group, led by managing partners Mike Murrell and Bryan Powell based in Minneapolis. Joining them as a managing partner is Philip Jones, a former editor of Training magazine who launched the brand’s highly successful newsletters – now published online – as well as several leading industry events including the annual Training Conference & Expo. All three managing partners are former Lakewood vice presidents with Powell functioning in the role of Training’s business manager for a number of years.
The Lakewood Media Group publishes six print issues annually of Training; manages the brand’s Websites and online certificate programs; and produces the industry’s premier recognition program for excellence: the Training Top 125.
Training's Conference & Expo – which includes the Training Top 125 black-tie gala – is held annually in February. Visit www.TrainingMagEvents.com for upcoming locations.
