"LANTEC was a true partner in ensuring we developed as many employees as possible. They cared about our employees' development just as much as I did, and that meant so much to me! This was an overall great experience that we are interested in again in the future!"

- Dr. Mechelle Roberthon, VP & Director of Talent Development, Home Bank

"This last quarter was really great for us training wise. We had a lot of training to schedule and deploy, and Courtney and Brad were extremely helpful in helping us accomplish this. Our staff really enjoyed the in-person sessions we did at our office, and the whole process was made easy with Lantec’s help. Additionally, we were able to get last-minute grant revisions approved very quickly. This really helped us gain access to beneficial training we hadn’t anticipated our employees would need or want to attend."

- Blake Haynie, Human Resources Manager, Bossier Federal Credit Union
