Company Updates

  • PDG participated in our first “PDG Gives Back” event supporting the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Delaware and Philadelphia! We created 100 meal-kits containing quick lunch items and snacks for families that are going back and forth to the hospital. Having the ability to grab a quick meal leaves them with one less thing to worry about and we are thankful we could help them in this small way! In addition to providing the meal, we decorated the bags and added cheerful cards. The creativity and artistry across the entire team was amazing! When dropping the bags off to each RMH, the volunteer managers expressed their appreciation of our generous and thoughtful donation!

    Team Malvern was not the only location giving back! PDGs virtual employees participated by supporting RMHC and other non-profit organizations all over the US in New York, Northern Virginia, Central Iowa, Illinois, Atlanta, and California!

Performance Development Group – Why Work For Us?


PDG helps our clients realize their business goals by driving the key metrics of business success. We do this by improving the performance of your people through learning, performance support, coaching, and pull-through. Learning drives behavior, behavior drives performance, and performance drives success.

We provide strategic services and capabilities that focus on both the visible changes to systems, processes, and tools as well as the less noticeable changes in attitude and behavior. Culture change is about more than teaching new knowledge and skills; it’s about capturing the hearts and minds of the employees so they can approach the new world with passion and commitment.

We hope you will read on and enjoy a few of our weekly wins and nomination(s) for some of our teammates/colleagues at PDG!

"Our partnership with Facebook continues! Lacey Jennings, Kim Wipf, and Stephanie McBride will be leading a curriculum mapping effort for Facebook’s Global Marketing Solutions team! This is a fantastic opportunity... [as] the team will be looking at [approximately]15 roles and making recommendations aligned with formal and informal learning. Upon completion of the work on these roles the team will move to the remaining 30 plus and then… [hopefully Facebook will select us to partner with them to] build [their learning solution]! Huge thanks to Lacey, Kristine Stables, and Kim for partnering with Jason DeLeon on this great win!"

Quarter 3 PDG Employee of the Month (aka Rock Star) nomintion for Jenny Erdoes, PDG's Instructional Design Manager:

"Jenny is a consummate partner, she goes above and beyond in her job role, she works early hours, late hours, regular hours, jumps in with Sales, manages estimators, helps with SOWs, helps scoping and delivery, hand in hand with our PMs. She oversees and develops her ID team, partners with talent acquisition, and recommends and refers awesome candidates from her past work life. I am unsure how we could do all that we do as an organization and provide the leadership required to such a productive ID team – the fulcrum of our learning solutions and PDG deliverables!"

Look for updates on PDG Rock Stars here on a monthly/quarterly basis!

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Performance Development Group (Philadelphia, PA).


    Contacted by a recruiter via linked-in. Had a phone interview with the founder / CEO and then a Skype interview with the VP of Sales. Mainly fit interviews. Pleasant and very conversational. They were focused on getting to see how I viewed client interactions, company fit, ability to work quickly with little information.

    Interview Questions

    • They gave a relatively simple case study - it was fun and allowed more interaction with the VP of Sales and President.   Answer Question
