"OpenBlend puts the employee at the heart of all 1:1 conversations. It facilitates discussions based predominantly on an agenda created by the employee. It is extremely simple to use, encourages regularity and reminds managers that there is a real person in front of them who has a life outside of work which impacts their behaviour and ability to do their job. It promotes and develops a coaching style and supports a consistent approach to 1:1's across the business."

"The account management experience we receive is brilliant. Proactive and insightful, they really understand the needs of our business and how OpenBlend can best support us. We love that our colleagues can use the tool in the way that works best for them - we make recommendations on frequency of use and the benefits of the different features, but ultimately the messaging is that the main purpose is to support effective coaching conversations between individuals and their manager, so it is in their hands."

Amardeep D'Amaro, Director of Global Talent Development

"It’s the most comprehensive and supportive tool I have ever come across. It allows me the freedom to focus on asking the best questions, touching the right nerve and properly listening to what I’m being told, rather than constantly having an internal conversation about how I’ll track something or scratch around to remember what was discussed last time."

Josh Winfield, Engineering Manager
