Mission: Educe is built upon five governing objectives:
• Build durable client relationships through distinctive insight, exceptional implementation, and superior impact
• Offer a significant, charismatic, and decisive presence for our ...
Educe helps organizations implement talent management technologies, such as performance and learning, that enable people to reach their potential. By focusing on implementation and adoption of systems that enable the development of people, we have grown specialized expertise that allows us to provide solutions that are relevant and sustainable.
Educe employees enjoy a flexible, manageable work-life balance. Our use of collaborative social technology and regular company retreats ensure that each employee feels and functions as a fully integral part of the team, regardless of location.
We recognize and appreciate the unique strengths of each member of the Educe team. Each team member is encouraged to explore new processes and hone skills based on individual competencies and interests. This constant innovation drives our steady growth as individuals and as a dynamic whole.
We work hard here and genuinely enjoy it. But you don’t have to take our word for it; our four Washingtonian “Best Places to Work” awards and our employee testimonials more fully convey the Educe culture.
Educe consultants are located across the US, so twice a year our employees gather together to share progress, set new goals, and spend time together. Past locations include Vail, CO, Rehoboth Beach, DE, Las Vegas, NV, and Miami, FL.
I have been working at The Educe Group full-time (Less than a year)
Educe allows employees (from recent grads/new hires to experienced consultants) to operate in an environment where they can make their own decisions with the support of those who have "been there/done that". The company understands that it's more important to support someone who is making their way through complex projects with an infrastructure of experienced colleagues and allow them to (possibly) make mistakes from which they'll learn than it is to micromanage the activities of their employees to ensure none are ever made. Furthermore, they hire for individuals who will take more personal and professional responsibility for their projects and interactions than could ever be trained, so the caliber of consultant that emerges is the highest possible.
If you're looking for a large company, you will not find it at Educe - this small business supports teams in some of the world's largest and most complex organizations - but it isn't one itself. It's a close knit group of intelligent/driven folks who would rather meet up twice a year and learn from/help one another and catch up than move up to the next rung on the ladder to partner.
Advice to Management
Your employees like direct interaction; regardless of how big you get, they will always value the time you set aside to learn about each of them as people.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at The Educe Group (Bethesda, MD) in March 2017.
The interview process was quick, engaging and straightforward, and the company's sincere interest in getting to know me was clear from the beginning . Everyone I was interviewed by asked questions relating to my previous personal experiences, and my conversations flowed naturally. Right away I understood the culture of Educe, which is an inclusive and hard working business environment. It was an exceptionally positive interview process compared with other interviews I had recently experienced as a second semester senior in college.
