About Us


Most leaders today believe that they have to invest in major projects or Transformation initiatives to realize meaningful growth. But what if you could grow without upending the business? What if you could unlock pockets of opportunity and productivity that would allow you to exceed expectations and give your employees the new skills and experiences they crave?

That’s where we come in.

CEB is a best practice insight and technology company. We help our customers grow by harnessing their untapped potential and channeling it toward high-impact, proven results.

We do this by offering advisory services and technology solutions that equip leaders to:

  • Turn the right insights into actions that deliver the right outcomes;
  • Upgrade processes and adapt culture to succeed in the new work environment; and
  • Apply precision to talent decisions for competitive advantage.

With more than 30 years of experience working in partnership with top companies, CEB has a unique view into what matters—and what works—when it comes to driving corporate performance. We invite you to explore new ways to grow with us.

Mission and Values

We unlock the potential of organizations and leaders by advancing the science and practice of management.

Member Impact

We define ourselves by the achievements of those we serve and believe that advancement of member interest is the only route to our own success. We are effective stewards of members’ contributions and confidences, and we relentlessly innovate to delight our current and future members.

Force of Ideas

We believe that great ideas—acute insights rooted in microeconomics and informed by human behavior—are essential to those accomplishments that change the fortunes of an individual, an organization, or the world. We discover and create these ideas and enable members and colleagues to act on them by delivering them in timely, targeted, and memorable ways.

Spirit of Generosity

We forge relationships with our members and with each other that go beyond the merely commercial. Our businesses center on generous exchange, both between professional peers and between our staff and our members. We derive honest joy from the opportunity to serve our members, our colleagues, and our communities.

Stewardship of Exceptional Talent

Our ambitions demand that we invest unusual effort in recruiting, developing, and managing exceptional talent from diverse backgrounds. We foster an entrepreneurial culture that enables outsized individual and team impact, grows businesses, and creates compelling careers. We set aspirational objectives, measure outcomes, reward outstanding accomplishments, and readily reinvent how we work.

Corporate Citizenship

CEB Corporate Citizenship, the philanthropic arm of CEB, seeks to provide the social sector with the same unparalleled intelligence and resources that CEB provides corporate-sector clients. At CEB, we believe that the most pressing problems facing leaders and their organizations have often been addressed—and solved—by other organizations. This is true in both the corporate and social sectors. At CEB, we focus our philanthropic efforts on driving nonprofit performance.  We have a unique view into what matters—and what works – and we apply proven practices to deliver innovative solutions that unlock the full potential of the social sector.
