Case Studies

Talent Management Consulting

CHALLENGE: Managers of a division within a large oil and gas company approached ICC after the department received the lowest rating within the entire company. There were a significant number of safety issues and workplace incidences that were attributed to a lack of training, development and overall concern from the employees of this department.

SOLUTION: ICC gathered data to establish a baseline of what was working, reflecting the company’s values and operations of today. Once data was analyzed, ICC designed and launched a collaborative Values Task Force to compose and strengthen workplace values, specifically safety. The values-based driven culture improved customer and employee satisfaction, and financial return, by reducing workplace safety incidences to 0 percent within one quarter of implementation. The division is now rated as one of the top departments in the annual employee engagement survey.

Organizational Effectiveness

CHALLENGE: Rapid changes at this regional power company, including a new GM/CEO, were creating extreme frustration and turnover among the management team and dedicated, tenured employees who had a strong affiliation to the legacy of the organization. The organization wanted to shore up gaps in behaviors and expectations that would be needed to attain company goals and ultimately lead to a culture of continuous improvement where change was seen as a positive.

ICC launched an organizational culture survey and obtained a 90 percent employee participation rate. Using a linking-pin feedback process, feedback, communication and action planning were rolled out throughout the organization. The program ultimately led to employee buy-in and action planning with senior leadership in order to create a strong sense of direction for future strategy.


CHALLENGE: ICC partnered with a large exploration and production company during its acquisition by new corporate ownership. ICC supported more than 100 employees in locations in Colorado and North Dakota with compassionate outplacement as they were not to be part of the new company.

SOLUTION: ICC coordinated support for each location, including having professional Career Transition Coaches available on-site on the days of and following notifications. The coaches worked alongside the human resources leader to coordinate efforts, and nearly 100% of the impacted employees, from field supervisors to corporate executives, took advantage of the outplacement services.
