"At US Cellular, leadership development is a critical element in our business strategy and growth. Using our CEO’s Dynamic Organization framework as a platform for customer and associate satisfaction, we have grown to an organization of 8,000 associates in dozens of markets across the US."
"In response to our request for proposal for a provider of multi-rater services, we reviewed the services offered by many of the leaders in the field—DDI, CCL, Lominger, PDI, etc. As we prepared to roll-out our process with our leadership group first, we sought an external resource that could deliver on the following criteria:
"We chose Howick Associates and the 2020 Insight Gold system as our multi-rater provider because they clearly met these criteria and they had demonstrated knowledge of the US Cellular organization. As our competency model was created in-house, we clearly needed a partner who could provide a very customized 360° instrument and Howick Associates was able respond quickly and effectively. Those who have received their 360° reports comment on how well the feedback genuinely reflects the US Cellular organization."
"Our experience with the 360° instrument and with the Howick Associates organization has exceeded our expectations. From the detailed work of creating the survey statements to the creation of communication pieces to the flexibility they demonstrate when orienting participants to their feedback—all contributions have been superb. They are viewed as a true strategic partner by all of us in the Learning and Organizational Development division, a virtual extension of our team. Without hesitation, I would recommend the services of Howick Associates to provide 360° services at the executive and management level."
