PeopleFit has served as a trusted business advisor to me and my teams for over a decade. The level of sophistication of their integrated approach to talent assessment, organization design, and managerial leadership and practices has made a significant contribution to our transition from zero growth to sustained double digit growth over 5 years.
Mallinckrodt Baker, Inc.
The leadership-potential judgments we made using PeopleFit’s Talent Pool Evaluation process over eight years ago have stood the test of time. The employees we identified as high potentials are handling very complex roles and have been very successful throughout a very turbulent time in the telecommunications industry.
Corporate Succession Planner
We’ve used PeopleFit’s Talent Pool Evaluation process twice. Both times it helped us clearly see the root cause of several current performance issues. We made some changes based on what we learned about matching employee capability with with complexity, and we saw instantaneous results.
Because the issues we resolved are present in most organizations, I would recommend this process to any organization.

We have just re-structured our organization to reflect the Talent Pool Evaluation work we did with PeopleFit in the Fall. The information has been invaluable in identifying high potentials as well as some talented employees that we needed to utilize more effectively.
We also used the progression charts and information to staff a special project team we deployed to a sister plant on the West Coast for a critical project, and then absorbed the team members back into positions on the East Coast that best used their talents in a way that added value to the organization.
Our decisions were guided by PeopleFit’s three point model which includes their cognitive capability, their education and experience, their preferences and their strengths – what a win for everyone!
Organizational Development Consultant
PeopleFit introduced us to the concepts of Requisite Organization and helped us apply them to our chaotic situation. I’ve seen the difference they make.
We are working normal hours now, and my emails are down from several hundred to 75 per day. My department is no longer a roadblock. We are resolving 90% of customer complaints within our 30 day goal and we are delivering customer surveys in a matter of weeks when it used to take months. The quality of my hiring decisions is better. I’ve hired four people in the last year and they have all been stellar performers, and people are staying longer than two weeks!
These concepts inform all my processes now. When I make changes, when I create new roles, when I hire, these concepts are always on my mind.

Michelle Malay Carter is an expert in Requisite Organization, a science to performance management that takes the voodoo and guesswork out of promotions, job satisfaction, and compensation.
I have had her speak several times to my consulting skills classes. In final evaluations, participants rated her 75 minutes session as the most “exciting,” “fascinating,” and “thought-provoking” of the entire 3.5 days.
RO is not easy stuff – but Michelle makes it approachable and immediately applicable. I’m always on the lookout for ways to involve Michelle and recommend her heartily.
Founder and CEO
Strategic Development Inc.
The concepts I’ve learned from PeopleFit effect the way I manage my company on a daily basis.
The PeopleFit team has worked tirelessly beside me to help me form the kind of organization I dream of. My dream was for more than getting work done, but that in the doing, our people would be made healthier and stronger by their participation. I can’t speak more highly of the PeopleFit team.
