5-Star Testimonials Include:
“People Pragmatics delivered a Consultant-Led Performance review for our life sciences company that helped us to benchmark performance and resolve some critical organizational conflicts. The clarity we gained from their immersive approach was incredible. Most memorably, we were able to turn around a high-performing cultural detractor into a cultural champion who is now leading a high performance team. We now have a great system for accountability that puts culture at the forefront.”
“Our SaaS company thought we were hiring the right software developers, but they just kept leaving in the first 90 days. The ones that did stay weren’t delivering the results we expected. Since only 1 in 5 offers we made were accepted, the cost to hire was immense. People Pragmatics designed a structured interview process to help us identify not only the skills needed for our roles, but the behavioral traits and values that would make someone a good “fit.” After implementing the process our acceptance rate increased to 85% and we COMPLETELY eliminated our developer turnover in the first 90 days. We finally got the production we needed and our customers won!”
