How the cohort works

red underscore

Over 8-weeks you'll equip yourself with the coaching, community and framework to transform how you think about building engaged, high-trust, high-performance culture through communication, clarity and transparency. You'll learn alongside 8-10 other People Leaders, and maintain access to our Slack community as an Alumni member afterwards!

First – Meet your leadership cohort

You'll connect with an intentionally small group of 8-10 passionate People & Talent leaders and together you will benefit from the following: 
  • 1:1s with other People & Talent Leaders and Intimate firesides with world-class transparency experts
  • Bespoke coaching time with Open Org's Founders, and 3x 1:1 workshops to build out personalised playbooks to help transform career sites, job ads, and people policies
  • Peer-led roundtables, and inspiring keynote speakers
  • Private slack community
  • Curated transparency templates, playbooks and frameworks
  • 1st year free access to the Open Org People community
  • Partner discounts worth a combined £25k in HR & Talent Tech

Next – Improve clarity & communication in your company over time with the whole Open Org community behind you

Alongside Open Org coaches, your cohort, community alumni and transparency experts, you’ll transform how you think about building engaged, high-trust work environments.

Get coaching check-in's, 500+ templates, guides, and discounted access to all the tools you need to succeed.

We collaborate with you to identify and pursue the highest impact changes to improve clarity & alignment at work.

After – Keep building clarity & trust into your culture & employer brand, supported by us, our community, and framework

The Open Culture Framework is the perfect roadmap and guide to help you continue to make strategic improvements to your people & candidate experience.

As an added step of accountability, the ultimate seal of approval is earned via our Company Accreditation; a signal to your employees that you commit maintaining that bar, and a promise to applicants that 'what you see, is truly what you get here'

I just want to focus on company accreditation, where do I start?

If you and your business are ready to pursue Open Org accreditation then a good first step is to complete the mini-assessment to understand your eligibility. For more information on company accreditation check out how it works here.

How much time commitment is there?

Open Org Cohorts are a buffet of content with 1-2 hours per week for synchronous coaching, masterclasses and other cohort events. How much you invest beyond that is up to you, but we stress that this really forms part of your onboarding to our community long term, so don't put pressure on yourself to deliver lots during the cohort- we know what life is like as a busy people leader

What are some of the key takeaways I can expect?

Expert-Led Learning: Benefit from workshops, roundtables, and fireside chats that provide targeted coaching in 35 areas of organisational transparency.

Valuable Networking: Engage in 1:1 sessions with other progressive People and Talent Leaders and gain access to an exclusive, small and mighty Slack community.

Practical Resources: Receive curated transparency templates, playbooks, and frameworks to implement actionable changes, and take away 3x bespoke playbooks crafted for your business to help you transform things like career site, job ads, people policies.

Accreditation and Community: Earn lifetime accreditation as an 'Open People/Talent Leader' and enjoy first-year free access to the Open Org community and partner network.

Additional Perks: Take advantage of partner discounts in HR & Talent Tech and opportunities for continuous professional development.

Do I need to be employed to participate?

Yes. To make the most of the workshops and content you ideally need to be employed. There can be exceptions in some circumstances though.
Can i pay in instalments? 

Yes. If you are funding personally. We take a 20% deposit to secure spot ($320 / £250) with remainder payable in up to 3 installments pre-cohort.

What timezones are Open Org Cohorts?

We currently run 100% remote cohorts across two time zones: +/- 4 hours GMT and +/- 4 hours EST.

Because these are smaller groups and more-hands on sessions we have to stick rigidly to these for the time being.

What are the guiding values of the Open Org Community

Open Org currently lives by 3 core guiding values in our community:

#Give Back Generously
#Be Excellent To One Another
#Learn In Public.

Can I pay for this with my L&D budget?

Absolutely! Many of our cohort members use their Learning & Development budget to cover the cost of part or all of our 8-week cohort. Our program is designed to provide valuable skills, networking, and accreditation that align well with typical L&D objectives.
