Startup

Some History
 

After fifteen years in the corporate training industry, the company’s founders decided it was time to take their skills and love of their work to a new level. So, in 1999, Polestar Solutions was created. Polestar's name came about because the North Star - the Polestar - has been a guide to all sorts of quests for millennia. Solutions was chosen to emphasize this firm is in the business of solving problems. Thus, Polestar Solutions: Creative problem solving for corporate training and development.

From the very beginning Polestar's corporate culture has been based on professionalism, creativity, and a zeal for discovery that provides positive results for clients. As Polestar has grown, like-minded people have joined and enhanced the company, bringing their skills and brilliance to the mix. Polestar Solutions is a group of creative, independent thinkers who are not only passionate about their professional goals, but their personal projects as well: family, community service, and all the arts, especially theater. Enthusiasm, a drive for excellence and a

can-do work ethic drive Polestar Solutions.

Our company is focused on creating highly customized and effective training that provides a rich experience to the learner. We started out as a provider of technical support and customized instructor-led training. Our focus has since shifted to training, and as technology has evolved, elearning. Over the years, a team of talented instructional designers and trainers have helped grow Polestar into a trusted training resource for many multinational companies. Today, we enjoy long-term relationships with most of our clients. Our ability to build bridges and partnerships helps create effective training solutions that support their long-term corporate goals. We are proud to have a diverse list of clients who count Polestar as their most trusted training resource.

 

Support of the Arts

We here at Polestar are avid supporters of the arts. Elizabeth has spent the last few years on the board of Pleasant Valley Productions (PVP), a not-for-profit theater company in New Jersey.  

 

When Heidi joined Polestar in 2019, she jumped in to help with many of the tasks required to get a full season of theater, dance, and music up and running successfully.

 

PVP’s home is the Oskar Schindler Center for the Performing Arts, a beautiful outdoor venue in West Orange, NJ. This past season of PVP@OSPAC has been particularly rewarding as PVP offered a performance space to many of the high schools in the area who were unable to perform in their auditoriums due to Covid. The kids were thrilled to be able to have a live audience after such a difficult year.

 

PVP also had an exciting season of its own with amazing performances in concerts, theatrical productions, and dance programs.
