This Fast-Growing Company Wants to Invest in Your Career
CEB, a best-practice insight and technology company, is equipping more than 10,000 organizations in 110 countries with data, tools, and actionable solutions to transform enterprise performance.
“On a basic scale, we go out and look at common challenges executives are facing,” explains Andrew McWhirt, a business development associate. “[We] find out how to solve them, and then document the processes in order to teach them to our members.” As of now, CEB’s member companies include 90% of the Fortune 500, nearly 75% of the Dow Jones Asian Titans, and more than 85% of the FTSE 100.
Although the organization was founded over 30 years ago, CEB has never stopped evolving. “I’m most excited about the growth that we’ve had,” says Market Director of Financial Services Kendra Tucker. “I think what will be really interesting is to see how we continue to morph our business.” According to Tucker, the company is at its core a best practices company and is now also focusing more on technology and talent analytics. “And if you think about the space that we’re moving into with the talent analytics,” she shares, “there’s a lot more we can do there.”
Growth at CEB isn’t limited to company-level advancements, however. The company is also seriously dedicated to investing in each employee’s career development.
McWhirt for instance, recently graduated from CEB’s Sales and Service Professional Development program—where he was able to go from being an entry-level employee to developing business acumen about CEB’s products. These learning and development classes are a core part of the career development opportunities offered to CEB employees, and they help to enhance employees’ professional output. “If I could go back, I would've started working at CEB a lot sooner,” he shares.
Whether it’s the constant shifts the organization makes toward new territories or the challenges that add fresh skills to each team member’s repertoire, it’s exciting that the company and employees alike are moving in an upward direction at CEB.
