With nearly a half decade of collaboration, The LHT Group is excited for VIOC to be recognized by Training magazine.

Over the years, The LHT group has worked VIOC in several ways. Here are the top three:

  1. Customer Service – With over 825 franchised and corporate locations across the country, managing a dependable and quality customer service experience can not only be challenging, but potentially costly. Using custom built online trainings helps VIOC create a consistent training experience regardless of location.
  2. Product Training – Throughout VIOC’s 25 years of excellence, they have developed a wide variety of products and services. While this is great for customers, VIOC must ensure each employee is an expert on each.
  3. System Training – When you are a top company like VIOC, you have lots of custom technology and mechanical systems. Given the unique nature, systems training for employees are a must for efficient and effective use. Custom eLearning modules help VIOC’s employees get initial on the job training and stay updated on new advancements.

Taken together, these collaborations have helped VIOC achieve the Brandon Hall Gold Award, ASTD BEST Award, and the prestigious CASE Certification. Clearly, VIOC deserves the Training magazine’s award and a heart-felt congratulations!
