The Talent to Value Company
Delivering results through precise, value-driven business transformations with a talent edge.
When change hits, value shifts and money moves to follow the value. But people in organizations can’t move as fast. They are stuck and disconnected. Stuck in hierarchies or with old ways of thinking, and disconnected from the value. Our founders and partners have spent decades working inside the C-Suite at large, global organizations and private equity firms. We leverage this knowledge and experience to rapidly unlock value to generate measurable results. We build long-term capabilities to allow the work to carry on. We use cutting-edge tools that put actionable insights into the hands of business leaders across the globe to improve a company’s returns, mitigate execution risk and minimize disruption.
We perform the fewest things possible to generate the greatest impact, in time.
We love to be creative - bringing a beginner's mind, imagination, and design to the world of talent.
We come from an experienced practitioner's point of view.
Intuition is no longer enough; we focus on evidence.
Our partners have worked globally with some of the most recognized brands including, Unilever, ING, Blackstone, Motorola, Walmart, and Coca-Cola.
“Sandy (Founder, CEO.works) reminds us to make direct connections between value and talent, value and leadership, value and culture, org design and change. No discussions of “talent for talent’s sake”. No abstract conversations about culture or org charts. Instead, there are value-oriented discussions that can guide design. “What drives value? What are the key roles? How do we make smart bets on people in these roles? How do we enable them to succeed?” These are the kinds of questions that get—and rightly deserve—the attention of CEOs and Boards.”
