CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 8, 2021-- Cintas Corporation is pleased to announce that it has ranked sixth on the 2021 Selling Power 50 Best Companies to Sell For list. In 2021, Cintas moved up one place from its 2020 ranking of No. 7. Cintas has continued its steady climb on Selling Power’s list, rising from No. 27 in 2013. This is the 21st consecutive year the ranking has been published by Selling Power, and the 16th straight year Cintas has earned a place on the industry publication’s list.

“Cintas has a very long history of training and developing successful sales representatives who then go on to long, fruitful careers across our organization,” said Wendy May, Cintas Senior Vice President of Sales. “We have developed a culture here that is central to our employee-partners and their ability provide valuable products and caring service to our million-plus customers. We’re so proud to once again be recognized by Selling Power for the success of our sales employee-partners.”

Selling Powermagazine founder and publisher Gerhard Gschwandtner says, “The companies who earned a spot on this year’s list have truly world-class sales organizations,” says Gschwandtner. “In addition to providing superior onboarding and ongoing sales training, they quickly pivoted their strategy to give their sales reps the tools and skills they needed to succeed in today’s digital, remote selling environment.”

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.
