CGIRB sits among top national, international brands

Dec. 6, 2011, Research Triangle Park, N.C. – Copernicus Group IRB (CGIRB), a leading independent institutional review board, has been named a finalist in Training magazine's annual Top 125, which ranks companies’ excellence in employer-sponsored training and development programs.
The final rankings will be announced during Training's 2012 Conference and Expo, scheduled for Feb. 13-15 in Atlanta.
Training determines its Top 125 rankings using benchmark statistics and by evaluating corporate commitment, formal training programs, program efficacy and innovation. In addition to Copernicus Group IRB, the 2012 finalists include such powerhouse brands as ADP, Intel Corp., UPS and Verizon.
"CGIRB is honored to be the only IRB named as a finalist for the Training Top 125," Copernicus Group IRB president and CEO Bruce Tomason said. "Our ongoing commitment to the protection of human research subjects demands we maintain the highest training standards. Better staff education leads to increased employee competence, overall experience levels and, ultimately, improved service and impeccable quality for our clients."
Copernicus Group IRB's corporate trainer, Sydney Douglas, manages a training program which includes new employee orientation, skill development, interdepartmental trainings, accreditation/certification programs and coordination of corporate training initiatives.
The resulting training-focused environment enables new employees to quickly acclimate and contribute to the corporate culture, while ensuring seasoned staffers remain at the forefront of the industry.
"This award validates our approach to training at CGIRB," Douglas said. "By making ongoing training and certification efforts a top priority, we keep ourselves and our work on the cutting edge. At CGIRB, we fully realize the impact of training – that the quality of service we provide to our clients is directly related to the quality of employee training we provide for our staff. Training has always been a part of our culture, and we are thrilled to receive this honor."
