Billy Casper Golf (BCG) was presented the 2015 Helios HR Apollo Award for talent development on Wednesday, May 27 at the Ritz Carlton in Tysons Corner, VA.
"Our terrific team works smartly and tirelessly to provide fun and enjoyable experiences for everyone," says Peter Hill, CEO of BCG. "Our company namesake, dear friend and PGA TOUR legend, the late Billy Casper, instilled a culture of ‘positivity’ for our employees, golfers and club members."
Helios HR commended BCG's innovative training programs, including its proprietary "ACE the Guest Experience," "Building Our Buffalo" mentorship program, Billy Casper Golf University and BCG Superintendent Institute.
"We applaud Billy Casper Golf for building an atmosphere conducive to growth," says Kathy Albarado, CEO of Helios HR and Founder of the Apollo Awards. "It's evident it is very deserving of this award as a former employee nominated the company."
The Apollo Award follows BCG winning the Inc. Magazine "Hire Power Award" that celebrates private companies on the forefront of job creation and skills development.
Finalists were judged by an independent panel of former Apollo Award winners, and senior human resources executives and industry leaders. Five awards winners were presented based on number of employees: Ena (one to 50), Thio (51 to 200), Tri (201 to 600), Tessera (600-plus) and Hercules (non-profits). Two additional awards were given: Hercules (non-profits) and Opa (special recognition of a program).
