Andersen, along with Anthony Williams, senior human resources partner, and Tim Bruin, director, traditional-program distribution, accepted the award on the company’s behalf at the recent Auto Care Association Fall Leadership Days in Austin, Texas.

Winning companies were selected based on the education and training practices of the company, including what prompted the company to invest in training, the types of training accomplished, the initial goals, their experiences, results of the training and any future plans.
