The CARA Group is pleased to announce that our client, Ace Hardware, has won the 2023 ATD Excellence in Practice award in the Onboarding category for their Retail Support Center (RSC) New Hire Onboarding Training program.

Nick Zahos, Manager of Training, Onboarding, and Culture – Retail Support, had this to say “Ace Hardware is extremely proud to be recognized by the Association for Talent Development for our Retail Support Training and Onboarding Program. It took a complete team effort, from the corporate office staff to the Retail Support Center leadership to the individuals on the floor, to produce a program that enhances the training and retention of our new hires. The success of this program has opened several other avenues in the training, onboarding, and engagement arenas for Ace, and we are continuing to look for ways to make a positive impact. At the center of it all has been our partnership with CARA, and their fantastic consultants. CARA has had a solution for all our needs, and I look forward to continuing to partner with them.”

Michelle Reid-Powell, CARA’s President and CEO, said “We are incredibly honored to have supported Ace in achieving the ATD Excellence in Practice award. This recognition is a testament to the power of collaboration and the transformative impact of effective learning solutions. This achievement would not have been possible without the dedication and trust of our client, and the leadership of our consultant, Eileen Terrell. This award is a validation of our shared commitment to excellence, and we are thrilled to celebrate this milestone together.”

Congratulations to Nick as well as to the Ace and CARA team!
