HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 8, 2015--
Inc. (NYSE: NSP), a leading provider of human
resources and business
performance solutions for America’s best businesses, today announced
the continued success of its Certified Business Performance Advisor
program with 19 recent graduates. Since its inception in 2011, 169 sales
team members have completed the professional level program through C.T.
Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston, and an
additional 40 are expected to begin the program in 2015.
“The certification program is essential to providing our sales force
with the business tools necessary to further elevate their role as
trusted advisors, helping businesses run better, grow faster and make
more money,” said Jay E. Mincks, Insperity executive vice president of
sales and marketing. “We are experiencing higher sales efficiencies;
significant double-digit increases in discovery calls, business profiles
and new clients; and record low turnover rates, due in part to the
success of this program. A highly trained team combined with our
successful sales model positions us well for continued growth in 2015
and the long term.”
The Certified Business Performance Advisor program includes a rigorous
curriculum of courses ranging from finance and statistical analytics to
business ethics and management taught by faculty from the Bauer College.
The 80-hour professional level program is designed to provide Insperity
advisors with a broader base of knowledge coupled with a deeper
understanding of an array of critical business solutions.
“This course is very powerful, and I recently reviewed the materials
again and used much of what I learned to help sell our services to a
company with 109 employees,” said Chris Sloan, Insperity district
manager located in Atlanta. “The program has helped my team and me raise
the bar in the conversations we have with our prospects.”
The certification program is comprised of nine eight-hour modules of
in-class and Web-based instruction in accounting and financial
reporting, leadership and human resources, strategy, finance, business
development and customer management, business analytics and statistics,
management information system and decision support, operations, and
business law, ethics and values.
The coursework culminates in an all-day business simulation that focuses
on the crucial issues of why some companies succeed and others fail.

businesses and compete head-to-head for market share and revenue.
Participants gain practical experience from the exercise – confronting
