As part of our 10th anniversary, we asked our clients and partners to describe Propel International in 3 words:
"I have been privileged to partner with Propel International at 3 multi-national organizations. In our new ecosystem business models, they can be considered an extension of CoE teams bringing in deep science-based expertise "in-need" and "globally dispersed." Our collaboration has spanned across integrated talent management solutions such as the design of success profiles, bespoke assessment & development centers, high potential acceleration centers, leadership 360 assessments, executive assessments for selection and a global talent portal.
"With over a decade of experience in the United States and The United Arab Emirates, Iâ€™ve had the unique opportunity to meet and work with many of the top thought leaders, consultants and coaches in the learning and development field. Propel stands out amongst them. Propel has been a trusted partner and instrumental in helping us develop sophisticated methods in strategizing, be it by creating programming on culture, team building, assessments, design and any other aspects when dealing with people, programs and projects.
"From the outset, it was clear that Propel are experts in their field and are committed to taking the time to truly understand the requirements, culture and values of their clients. They worked closely with us to understand what we were looking for and ensured that the entire process ran smoothly. Their approach of providing a tailored executive assessment process for each position also helped to ensure we were attracting and identifying the right candidates based on the requirements of the individual roles. We have been delighted with the service we have received from Propel and I wouldn't hesitate to work with them again in the future. Happy 10 year anniversary!"
"I have known Propel for almost a decade now. I still remember while we were exploring a partner who could guide / customize / execute our talent management framework, we came across a niche consulting organization driven by passionate founders who wanted to make a difference in a market which had many established names.
"I offered several leadership development programs in Abu Dhabi as part of the Executive Education program at New York University Abu Dhabi. I partnered with Propel to provide the leadership assessments that informed the coaching and development work for each of the participants in the program. It was such a pleasure to work with Propel that, now that I am back in the US, I still call on them when I need assessments done and they always deliver! I know I can count on them when I need help with assessing talent."
"I tell every HR professional I meet about our awesome Propel solutions and the difference they are making to our selection and development decisions. Cost effective, scaleable, insightful and pragmatic we're getting benefit from them across the organisation at all levels. Lucy and Jenny are warm, professional, super smart consultants who truly listened and supported us to choose wisely and implement carefully for lasting results. We are big fans."
"Propel have worked with Epicor long before I joined the business and delivered a number of consulting workshops."
"From the inception of the firm 10 years ago, I have watched Propel grow and become a best-in-class consulting firm. Over the years, I have had the privilege of working alongside the Propel team in the delivery of several leadership development centers and assessments. They are a high caliber team and their work is always innovative, client-focused and methodologically robust. It is my pleasure to be a part of such an amazing, professional and fun group of colleagues!"
"Propel delivered superb assessment solutions and real-time support throughout the project. Their passion to quality and spirit of partnership set them apart from all other providers we worked with in the past.
"Propel are one of those rare organizations, where I look forward to every single conversation and project, with every single member of the team. Why? Because there is always positive energy, new ideas, courage to experiment and to innovate. With such a culture, grounded on science and experience, they are a valued partner, one that we know we can collaborate with safe in the knowledge we have shared mindsets and ambitions."
"I worked with Propel in my previous organization, Majid Al Futtaim across multiple disciplines. They were instrumental in enhancing and evolving our 360 Survey from both and expertise and platform perspective.
"I have enjoyed a great partnership with Propel for many years, particularly in EMEA. Propel's contribution in the talent space, particularly in talent assessment and 360 feedback has been very instrumental. Leveraging Propel's practical tools and professional resources, we grew and developed senior talent in the organization. I wish Propel continued success and prosperity in their glorious 10th anniversary."
I've worked with Propel for many years, in many countries! Primarily in designing and delivering leadership assessments, and providing coaching to our leaders. I've also enjoyed being part of the thought leadership breakfasts they run in their Dubai head office. The unique culture of Propel means that an agile, customer-focused and warm partnership is always guaranteed. I'm excited to see where Propel go in the future!
"I have worked with the guys at Propel both as a client and as an Associate in Talent Management and Assessment. As a client they always delivered a high quality service to me and were ever patient with my changing requirements. Delivery was always on time and the overall outcome was a huge success.
"I've always enjoyed working with every single person within Propel. They seem to have developed a rare blend of warmth and professionalism and I can trust them to deliver on their promises. I'm proud to be one of their associates and a part of a culture that is always developing and innovating."
"I've been lucky enough to contribute as an associate consultant psychologist to a number of Propel projects. ...I've developed new insights by working with Martin, Amir and the team. The unsung heroes for me are the back-room team who are always highly supportive and invaluable in smoothing the path of complex projects.
"Working with Amir in the past and getting to know this incredible team of dedicated people all working toward a noble mission has been a great experience."
"Congratulations on the 10 year anniversary! I've been fortunate to work with Propel both as a client and as an associate for 3 of those 10 years. From my perspective as a client, the Propel assessment portal has been incredibly helpful in enabling me to provide a streamlined and user friendly candidate experience, and the support and advice from Fleur and her colleagues has been invaluable. I look forward to another 10 years working together."
"I've been working with Propel as a client or a colleague since 2015. I'm proud to have had the privilege of being a small part of their ten-year journey. Amir and Martin are without doubt two of the best psychologists I've worked with, the trust they've earned with clients, Propel's global footprint and the company culture are testament to that. I'm grateful to have them and the wider team in my network as thought partners and friends."
"Worked with Propel on 360 feedback for Leadership team. The entire experience was seamless, from designing assessments to delivering insightful reports that helped in engaging conversations with top talent. Wish you the very best. Great Team!"
"I have been working as an Associate with Propel International in the Middle East for the past two years and have always found them to be a professional, collaborative and high standard consultancy. I have supported several different clients on their behalf as both a Coach and an Assessor and have found their knowledge of the client's needs to be customer focused and the delivery of solutions aligned to propel's passion of assessment and development to support the client's talent management approach. Propel's team are professional and friendly experts in their field of work and I can personally say I have enjoyed working with them enormously and hope it continues!"
"Working with Propel for several years has been always a success and a pleasure.
"I worked with Propel in my previous capacity as Head of Talent. Together we created a Development and Assessment Center for our Mid and Senior Level Managers. I very much appreciated the professionalism, competence and ease of interaction with the team. Both Amir and Mana were great partners throughout the process and the outcome was very well regarded by both the beneficiaries of this experience as well the organization. Congrats on your 10 year anniversary and wishing you further succcess!."
"I have partnered with Martin and the team at Propel for most of these 10 years. Propel has had a strategic impact on the identification and development of key talent in my global teams as we have raised the bar in the customer experience we provide."
"I have worked with Propel for the last 3 years across two very different companies and they have been able to tailor their approach and recommendations based on the company needs. Its not one size fits all with them. They really get to know the company, the brand and the people and what we are going to achieve. Unlike many suppliers, we have consistency with our account managers. Working with both Jenny and Lucy has been a highlight, they are both extremely knowledgeable, passionate and take a real interest in what we are trying to achieve. Always available to help and forward thinking in the market. We have worked together on ensuring we have the right suite of tests available for our individual roles in the company including gamification specific to assessing our needs. Taking this one step further we have also had Jenny and Lucy devise our behaviour competencies and help us embed them throughout the business, which is already starting to show huge reward for our people."
"Having worked with Propel for a number of years, it was a privilege to welcome them to the Saville Assessment family of International Partners in 2018. Since then we have built on a fantastic relationship, enabling the delivery of custom assessment solutions globally, backed with high-validity and rigour. They share our commitment to following best-practice and upholding industry standards and it has been a pleasure watching the partnership grow and to see them expanding our network of trained-users. I have loved working alongside Propel and every single Propeller has been a joy to work with."
"The Kompass team have thoroughly enjoyed working with Propel over the years across many countries and industries. It has been an absolute pleasure to see the team grow across the globe and to continue providing value to its clients. Wishing the Propel team an amazing decade ahead! Well done on this terrific milestone!"
"The Propel team are highly diligent, reliable and eager to add the most value possible for their clients."
"I was recruited by Propel to work as an Associate in 2016 and I was pleasantly surprised at the rigorous process I was asked to undertake before being asked to deliver and support assessments for them. Propel believe in their products and processes to the extent of ensuring that everyone working for them also aligns to their high standards of quality and competence and I commend them for that!
"I feel privileged and fortunate to have been able to take part in the exciting Propel journey over the last 10 years. Working with the Propel team across a number of continents on a range of assessment and development projects has been rewarding and inspiring. What's impressive about Propel is the rigorous application of best practices in the field of talent management and leadership development, the strong client focus, the innovation in terms of design, delivery, content and process, and - of course - the quality of the people.
"Professional assistance and timely delivery of outstanding results ALWAYS."
"Propel has helped our management team work better as a team, bond with each other but more importantly grow individually."
"Propel has helped us tremendously throughout our journey to transform our organization into one which identifies and measures talent with objectivity while providing clear development for our employees. They demonstrated flexibility, customer intimacy and creativity to adapt to our diverse needs across the global, while delivering both face to face and virtual interventions."
