Executives from the Irving, Tex.-based security firm say they installed Pathlore's LMS "to enhance the company's culture by offering more training solutions that serve to improve employee morale and stem turnover. A subsidiary of The Brink's Company, Brink's Home Security monitors home security systems for more than 800,000 customers in over 200 markets in the United States and Canada. Brink's also says the LMS will better prepare employees and thereby play a role in boosting revenue for the Texas firm. Mr. Allen adds, "The LMS gives our employees an easy way to acquire essential know-how about Brink's Home Security and our products."

Mr. Allen's remarks include his views on how to turn training and development into a strategic asset that aligns employees' performance with improved business metrics.
