Through NHPA, independent home improvement retailers can train their employees on essential product knowledge so they are ready to provide the best customer service. Now, NHPA offers retailers a way to publicly recognize their employees’ proficiency with the new Certified to Help distinction.
To be eligible for this designation, retailers must have their employees successfully complete a prescribed set of retail sales training courses from NHPA. Then, retailers will receive marketing materials from NHPA with the message, “Certified to Help.” Materials will include window clings and electronic files you can use to print out as signage or put on your website. As a bonus, eligible retailers will be entered into a drawing to receive a free lunch, sponsored by NHPA. It’s also a great way to recognize the hard work your employees have done to pass an array of training courses.
