CHESTER, Pa., Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Selling Power magazine has named Power Home Remodeling Group, one of the nation's largest home remodeling companies, the 15th best company to sell for in the United States, above a variety of companies including Google, Microsoft and Xerox. This marks the second consecutive year Power has been recognized on Selling Power's "50 Best Companies to Sell For" list.
Selling Power's "50 Best Companies to Sell For" list, now in its fourteenth year, evaluates companies based on revenue and growth, sales compensation packages, sales culture, onboarding and sales enablement strategies, training and coaching process and annual turnover percentage to determine the ranking. This year, Selling Power's corporate research team focused on three broad areas while examining the data: customer growth and retention; hiring, compensation, sales training and enablement; and company recognition and reputation.
"At Power we firmly believe that our people are the key to our success. We're thrilled to be recognized for our commitment to providing sales professionals attainable opportunities, which allow them to reach their full potential more quickly and experience extraordinary levels of success," said JD Diskin, Power's Chief Sales Officer. "We strive to create a supportive culture where we provide our sales force with the training, tools and incentives they need to thrive because we know a company's greatest investment must be in its employees. That investment is at the heart of our leadership philosophy — a cycle that begins with leaders throughout our organization showing the way to new hires, who then return the favor as they hit their performance and character goals, become leaders, and mentor colleagues to do the same."
One example of how the company reinforces its leadership philosophy is by hosting leadership conferences throughout the year featuring high profile, world-renowned speakers in business and government; personal and professional development workshops; and opportunities to socialize with colleagues and senior leadership at specialty events taking place in unique and notable venues.
The leadership training and mentorship program, higher-than-average salaries, and a culture recognized as one of the country's best has helped the company attract high-quality sales professionals who thrive in a work environment that fosters career growth and individual potential. In addition to very competitive salaries, the company's compensation model includes a 401(k) retirement savings program, comprehensive benefits and PTO, along with monthly performance-based incentives in the form of luxury gifts, and an annual company paid trip to a tropical destination to reward its sales force and their significant others.
Power was also recognized this year on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing companies in America for the fifth consecutive year. For more information about Power and available career opportunities, visit WorkatPower.com.

Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
