We believe the difference between good companies and great companies is having the right people in the right roles, making talent the single largest driver of corporate performance.

With more than 10,000 organizations deploying our talent measurement solutions, CEB has the most comprehensive view into the drivers of leadership success, employee performance, and employee engagement. We use this knowledge to help you acquire and retain top talent through Selection & Assessment, Skill Development, Engagement & Alignment, and Sales Effectiveness services.
