Life at CEB
We Believe in Making an Impact

You’ll feel it right away. It’s a buzzy, energetic, infectious but somehow intangible thing that permeates our offices and radiates from our people. We call it the Spirit of Generosity. It’s in the way we serve our members —intuitively and relentlessly.

It’s in the way we collaborate with each other—selflessly and unconditionally. It’s in the way we pour back hours into the communities where we live and work.

We Live to Learn
CEBers seek out new responsibilities, invite challenges, and reach beyond what is comfortable. When they do, we are there to propel them with formal training, mentoring, and coaching. We recognise their achievements with incentives, experiences, and rewards. There is no one too inexperienced to have something to teach or too tenured to have something new to learn.

The best way to describe CEB's Sales and Services Professional Development Program is as a mixture of classroom based learning and on the job training. Regular training sessions are held to introduce you to different elements of both the sales and account management process, and each module teaches you something that you'll be able to apply both in your current role, and in future career prospects.

At different levels of the SSPD program, you get access to training from the senior management team, as well as ongoing feedback from your own manager. Learning from others is the core ethos of CEB, and it's also applied in how the program is run with no end of opportunities to learn from experienced professionals and high performers.
