“Matt and the People Collective have been my go-to advisors for all people related matters, in particular on progression and compensation planning.

At Multiverse they helped us accelerate our hiring and introduce a powerful progression framework that supported our team’s development and gave visibility of different pathways they could take within the organisation, then helped us benchmark and build our compensation structure to support it."

"We launched People Collective's Manager Accelerator Programme for all managers across our business over the course of 2022 and have received great feedback from all 3 cohorts.

The content of the course is a brilliant mix of theory and practice, enabling participants to apply what they have learned to real-life challenges they're facing and receive coaching and feedback from their peers.

The facilitators are fantastic and it's been a hugely enjoyable experience partnering with People Collective on this project."
