The feedback from members speaks for itself…

Sally Paull, Chief Human Resources Officer, Regeneron

“We’re all consumed 100 hours a week with the demands of our roles. We just don’t have time to individually build relationships with peers. But one of the reasons Searchlight brings me so much value is because it allows me to work with brilliant people to tackle shared challenges together. I love that I can now pick up the phone and talk to my new network about what’s on my mind whenever I need to.”

Stephanie Franklin, Chief Human Resources Officer, Vertex

“Our long term flexwork strategy has been directly influenced by what we’ve heard our peers doing and thinking about in our Searchlight meetings, and at an even more granular level, we’ve picked up a number of examples of really useful specific language that we’ve heard others coining and applied it directly into our organization. It’s been so useful at such a challenging time for all of us.”

Martin Rexroad, Chief Culture & Community Officer, PTC Therapeutics

Searchlight gives me confidence that I’m heading in the right direction. I can use this network to affirm I’m on track and course correct where I need to. And just like a GPS, you don’t look at it the whole time when you’re driving, you check it from time to time. I don’t need a hundred thousand data points. I need the top thinkers in my industry, and those top thinkers have gravitated towards Searchlight.”
