SIS was hired by a large manufacturing company (“client”) to asses the potential of the company’s young professionals (both pink and white collar)
The client needed to identify young professionals for promotion to the managerial level
The existing tests and methods for identifying high potential managers was not successful as at least 25% of those promoted in the age group 21-33 were not performing well in the job they were promoted to
SIS interviewed over N=300 professionals external to the firm as well as N=300 internal staff members, both equally split between pink collar and white collar
We determined the professionals’ career aspirations and benchmarked them vis-à-vis their existing role in the company, their education and their desire to be promoted
Subsequently, SIS contacted a third party developer who allowed us to use their new assessment test for young professionals
At our recommendation, the client brought in the test and implemented the new professional development program
After 2 years, the success rate of promotion within the firm improved by 25%
The client gained the retention of a higher population of young professionals
This retention rate is still being tracked

A market research company and client of All Digital Rewards has been investing large amounts of capital into loyalty rewards programs and projects. The company is seeking to become more competitive and efficient, while still cutting costs as much as possible. The client has two programs running. Their first program includes a number of different programs and projects which provide incentive rewards to the company’s panelists via a point-based mixed reward marketplace. The company’s second program uses cash and cash-like rewards as the incentives for their panelists. The second program has the highest cost and is the larger of the two programs.
The second program has its end users typically engaging between one and five times per month. In exchange for completing tasks, the users are offered a sum of money each time in the form of a cash equivalent such as prepaid cards (physical and digital) and checks. The second program's users are becoming habitual in their choices of rewards every time they participate, and typically they use their reward funds for daily expenses and bills.
The primary challenge is to find where product savings can be applied by evaluating how rewards are distributed and the costs associated with each program’s products. To determine what will present the best method to drive retention & behavior, and also decrease costs, games are introduced into the incentive programs. Both scenarios can be examined with the game variable taken into account.
In 2015, AbbVie engaged Sklar Wilton to conduct a customized research study to better understand how physicians used one of its products. The first major purpose of the research was to deeply understand the reasons why their drug was being used and to add clarity regarding the patient groups using the drug. The second major purpose of the research was to optimize the positioning of the drug so that it would be used with the most appropriate patients and in the most effective manner.
