Hear From Our Clients

“Working with the team at Next Pivot proved to be influential in our D+I journey.”

Our company wanted to get candid perspectives from our associates in both the U.S. and around the world as we framed up our focus on global Diversity and Inclusion.  We worked with Next Pivot Point to deploy a series of focus groups, and we could not have been more pleased with the outcomes.  Julie and her team were true partners as we coordinated the logistics of holding facilitated discussions with associates across the globe.  They provided insights and recommendations that we were able to implement into our approach.  Working with the team at Next Pivot Point proved to be influential in our D+I journey, and truly demonstrated our commitment to hear from our associates and make changes based upon what they shared.
