Case Study

Transforming training delivery


The People Alchemy platform supports training companies looking to build and scale their digital offering. The way it does it is what makes it compelling for clients. Find out how the platform’s focus on guided learning and behaviour change was a real differentiator for The OCM.

About the client

The OCM is a professional coaching and mentoring company that delivers a diverse range of services to clients across the UK and internationally.

The challenge

The OCM wanted to find a platform and a system that supported its aim as a business, which is to deliver blended learning and behaviour change. “We were also looking for a system that had coaching and mentoring at its heart and that could support behaviour change,” says chief executive Ed Parsloe.

The OCM wanted technology that would reduce the training administration and deliver a more guided and accompanied approach.

How People Alchemy helped

The platform enabled the company to reduce staffing costs and at the same time scale up its business. The platform also enabled the company to provide a standardised approach to learning alongside the ability to customise on a learner-by-learner basis. This means that large cohorts of learners receive the same experience with a customised overlay just for them.

  • Platform builds and scales your digital offering
  • Focus is on behaviour change
  • Blends coaching and mentoring
  • Provides standardised experience for all learners
  • Customisable for individual needs
  • Reduces training administration

The outcome

All training resources are now in one place and are easy to access. Using the reporting features of the platform The OCM can see the return on investment of training. “I can monitor everything that’s happening with all of our candidates, while the reporting system has enabled us to assess and keep track of everybody and analyse how they work,” says Cathy White, programme support at The OCM.

“People Alchemy feels like a part of our company. We share things with each other – it is a two-way street.”

“It’s the one-stop shop system that will enable you to do everything you would ever need to do.”

“The People Alchemy platform ticked a lot of the boxes for us in terms of what we were looking for, not just something that could support us delivering blended learning, but that also had a real focus on behaviour change and knowledge transfer to help make behavioural shifts inside organisations sustainable over a period of time.”
