  13. 13. Client feedback ‘Access to SFIAplus has made our professionals think proactively about their own professional development. We don’t want to tell our people how to develop themselves, so the willingness to do so needs to come from them. If they show initiative and take proactive ownership of their own career path, we’ll support them at every step’. Ian Tutts, Head of Research and Development-Sage ‘The most unanticipated benefit to Colt since implementing SFIAplus is the reduction in vendor resource costs. ‘We ask contractors and suppliers to benchmark themselves against the framework ensuring consistency of skills and expertise. For the first time we can accurately compare the rates we are paying for resource and, as a result, our costs are reduced by 30%.’ Chris Hewertson, CIO, Colt ‘SFIAplus offered the flexibility to tailor roles to the specific needs of our customers. We now have a basis in which to build future talent management programmes…. Standardizing some of the roles in our company proved difficult at times. However SFIAplus offered the flexibility to tailor roles to the specific needs of our customers.’ Gene Bernier, Director of Integrated Solutions Delivery-Kimberly Clark ‘The Framework enables our people to identify the skills and capabilities that would be required for any future role they would like to pursue…..the credibility of the Institute’s badge – that label of industry best practice – meant that our Career Framework was easily accepted….In terms of relevant scope, and in terms of geographical uptake, we have found nothing similar to SFIAplus’ Daryl Beck Director of IT Academy-Unilever
