To assemble this year’s 50 Best list Selling Power’s research team created a thorough application where they gathered data across four main categories:
- Compensation and benefits
- Sales culture
- Onboarding and sales enablement strategies
- Sales training and coaching
Companies were ranked in each of the categories above to determine the final list. The methodology is the product of years of research, and Selling Power continues to refine the approach each year. Almost all the companies featured on the list invested in and offered thorough training specific to virtual selling in response to the pandemic. The list encompasses companies of all sizes – with sales forces ranging from fewer than 100 salespeople to companies with sales-force numbers in the thousands.
