“Guidant place the engagement and wellbeing of their workforce as a high priority activity. Most effort had historically focused at a macro, company wide level and more recently identified that there was a need  to support their managers in having engaging and productive conversations, at a micro and individualised level.”

“OpenBlend have been instrumental in helping us to refocus on how we want to operate.  The mix of “elements” and the way that the discussions are organised really enable a company to understand what drives individual employees - this has already resulted in us changing our policy around flexible working.”

“The feedback from the team has been great, replacing a 6 – 12 month appraisal process with regular monthly conversations means we are much more connected. The result is a happier, less stressed and more confident team, which isn’t always easy to achieve in a growing business.”

David Ramsey, CEO, Radcliffe Group

“It has transformed the way I conduct one-to-ones with my teams. OpenBlend is a must for every business.”

Cheryl Moloney, Operations Director
Blue Arrow

“OpenBlend is a truly insightful tool. Not only does it put employees at the centre of their own wellbeing and development, but it supports managers in helping their team members progress and grow, by coaching them to find the answers within themselves. Managers no longer need to have all the answers readily available and employees are given that space and thinking time to really consider what matters to them. Having all of this, together with the structure of both the objectives and feedback features, means it is an all-round wellbeing, performance and development tool. Finally, it fosters true equity, as it allows managers to get to know each individual in their team and to discover what drives them.”

“Since using OpenBlend we’ve seen a significant increase in not just the Wellbeing scores recorded by our colleagues but also the levels of confidence and competence of our leaders in having meaningful and impactful conversations. We’ve noted an upsurge in the levels of trust between Leader and Talent and this has led to increased creativity and a sense of freedom to manage their own outputs in our people.”

“We had never had a formal appraisal system or agreed process, everyone always did things in their own way.
OpenBlend has helped us to make the time and supported us to get a structure in place that works for our business.”
