What Makes Catalyst Different?

Our Clients & Partners tell us:

  • Catalyst provides talent management solutions that deliver lasting benefits.

Clients often run Catalyst programs for 5 to 7-years because of the ROI achieved & relevance to an ever-changing landscape!  

  • We appreciate Catalyst's thought leadership & partnership: that Catalyst continually debates, questions and reinvents solution in collaboration with us. 

  • Catalyst authentically cares for our talents and teams. They are deeply empathetic but also have the courage to disagree.  

  • We like that Catalyst is still the preferred APac partner for a number of global assessment experts such as PSI, Papilio, AON and Assessment Solutions.

  • We trust both Gina's 26-year experience and her commitment to positively impacting the future of leadership in the world.

  • We respect the professional standards Catalyst applies. Gina has accredited, trained and supervised assessors, coaches and consultants for two decades. 

  • Catalyst's approach to conducting audits on bias and objectivity on selection and promotion assessments/processes impacts our culture.

Example: We have successfully impacted global assessment processes from the work we have implemented in Asia Pacific.
