Ridler & Co is committed to understanding and sharing with the market place the evolving needs of sponsors of executive coaching. One of the main ways we do this is through the biennial Ridler Report.

Research has begun on the 2015 edition of the Ridler Report which analyses strategic trends in the use of coaching from the perspective of organisational sponsors of coaching.

The Ridler Report is an internationally reputed research project which is widely recognised for its influence in shaping the future direction of coaching in organisations.

It is led and managed by Ridler & Co, the London-based executive coaching practice.

What makes the Ridler Report distinctive is its:

  • Focus on collecting quantitative and qualitative data from hundreds of sponsors of coaching in leading organisations (the report does not use data from external coaches)
  • Insightful analysis and the clarity with which the findings are presented
  • Accessibility, making it easy for busy executives to glean its key conclusions

Ridler & Co continues to invest heavily in the Ridler Report in 2015, aiming to strengthen further the research’s position as an indispensable resource for organisational sponsors of coaching and for the broader coaching profession.

Clive Mann, Managing Director of Ridler & Co, is leading the research as Editor of the Ridler Report and Chairman of the Ridler Report Executive Board.

2015 marks the sixth Ridler Report. It is also the second time Ridler & Co has worked in collaboration with the European Mentoring and Coaching Council UK, one of the leading professional coaching bodies.

The report is receiving sponsorship from headline sponsor E.ON and the sponsors of the four core research themes (coaching evaluation, setting up coaching for success in organisations, team coaching and internal coaching) GSK, Hogan Lovells, Network Rail and News UK.

Professor David Gray of University of Greenwich, the leading international expert in research methodology has provided consultancy input into the Ridler Report to underpin the high levels of rigour of research methodology used, while expanding the range of the report’s research methods (including extensive use of focus groups).

The Ridler Report on-line survey covers areas drawn from the four core research themes (see above) and a range of other topical areas in coaching, including accreditation, matching, supervision, group coaching, coaching culture, the organisation’s role in coaching assignments, coachee objectives, external coaching fees and coaching via virtual delivery channels.

Organisational sponsors of coaching (typically survey respondents have been senior HR, Learning & Development, Talent and Coaching executives, including internal coaches) are encouraged to complete the survey which can be found at www.ridler-report.com from 2nd March to 2nd April 2015.
