In terms of this (high potential employees) program, the value is around getting some of our emerging leaders not only skilled up but really engaging the organization and feeling like they want to stay, but it's also making sure that they have visibility outside of their own specific area. This type of training gives them the foundation that they would need to take their skills up a notch.

I just thought they ‘got it’ more than the other company we were considering. In the conversations, it was just more ease of understanding our expectations. The other company would come back multiple times with a proposal that continued to not meet our needs. We were thinking about that and saying, ‘OnPoint clearly gets us a lot more than this other company.’ It just made more sense for us to go with them.

It’s so funny that I think some people think of their vendors as a vendor; something under them that they manage, and I just don’t feel that way with Rick and Darleen. I really feel it is a true partnership. They absolutely want to understand the culture at GSK. They are concerned about that with the program development and the program implementation tweaks that we do. They get right in there and when we send things back and forth it’s never critical or anything like that. I just really feel they’re just true partners in the sense that they want to speak to understand, learn and apply it into the program and make it a really good program for GSK.

Guardian recently implemented workplace policy changes to support a “hybrid” approach in which employees are able to balance working in the office, at home, and at alternative Guardian locations. A critical part of the implementation was to ensure that managers would be set up for success in this new, virtual environment. We partnered with OnPoint to design and deliver a customized program to provide managers with some of the critical skills needed to lead from a distance. The program was very practical and we received excellent feedback from participants.

OnPoint’s Execution Gap Survey identified our strengths as well as the factors that inhibited our ability to get things done and their implementation process helped build consensus among the key stakeholders. As a result, work teams were formed to improve cross-organizational coordination and cooperation and we quickly saw key improvements.
