B2B Focus Groups with Learning and Development

Unlocking Insights to Evolve with New and Changing Industry Developments.


A global talent platform company implemented an organization-wide effort to restructure and verticalize their sales team to meet the demands of the post-COVID workplace. To ensure their sales team would effectively support their clients under the new structure, the company wanted to understand the demands within each vertical.

The GLG Approach

GLG ran a total of eight focus groups globally to learn about the hiring goals, behaviors, and expectations of target decision makers. Each session featured four talent acquisition leaders from our network of experts, operating in representative B2B industries, to help uncover ways the company could better meet their needs.

Each focus group was blinded and recorded, allowing employees across the organization to listen and read the transcript for a first-hand look of the findings.


Our in-house research team helped ensure the session goals were clear and delivered the client key findings to understand each vertical. The results informed the organization on a global scale, providing overarching themes, terms, and language across each vertical, current industry challenges, and insights into how to be a better business partner.
