For the Program Administrator
Mentor Matching - Set your own matching criteria to help you make the best possible mentor-mentee matches. Alternatively, you can enable mentors and mentees to select their own matches.
Customization and Integration - Easily customize our software's user interface to reflect your brand, integrate with your existing LMS and HRIS software, and work in tandem with our other solutions for career development, coaching, alumni, and career transition.
Success Tracking - Send feedback surveys and generate reports to measure success and track progress.
For the Mentor and Mentee
Mentor Matching - If mentor-mentee matches are not made by the program administrator, designated mentors and mentees may select each other from an approved list.
Communication - Mentors and mentees can communicate effectively for the duration of their partnership using our software. Mentors and mentees can share notes and documents, such as mentoring agreements and learning plans, and use our goal-setting and goal-tracking tools to keep track of their own progress.
Access to Resources - Enable mentors and mentees to access all the resources they need, including our tips and advice, online from any location.
We offer customized software subscription plans to match your organization's specific needs.
Our complete mentoring software solution is ideal for managing multiple mentoring programs - featuring feedback assessments, advanced tracking and reporting, and integration with your current systems.
Our basic solution, suitable for smaller budgets, is focused on matching and pairing participants in productive mentoring partnerships.
The Results have been astounding in just over four years: 58,000 employees are users, over 4,362 have taken advantage of one-on-one confidential coaching, 3,000 participated in Group Coaching and over 815 success stories where individuals were retained who would otherwise have left. Insala's superb technological solution and collaborative approach have been absolutely essential in achieving this win-win for our people and our company.

Insala helped address some of the key challenges we faced at Unilever, which is virtual mentoring, as many of our mentees and mentors are not in the same geographic location. Insala's mentoring consultant, Judy Corner, is a true mentoring specialist and a highly engaging individual.
Global Talent Manager Unilever
At BPI, we pride ourselves on our responsiveness to the needs of both existing and potential customers. Insala's fast and reliable customer service and support have enabled us to do just that. When BPI UK were faced with a tight deadline to develop a career center website for a customer, Insala quickly met our needs. The Insala team were able to translate the BPI France website into British English and launch the website in record time. As a result, we were able to deliver our career center services to the customer with timescales that exceeded their expectations.
Managing Consultant BPI Group
I worked with Judy Corner of Insala to develop a customized mentoring program for International Paper. Judy provided a degree of confidence to the Chairman's Diversity Council as she presented a pragmatic, visionary, long term perspective on the benefits to be gained from Insala's program. Following the M.O.R.E. workshop, participants were surveyed on session effectiveness and Insala received a 100% favorable rating on the value of the day. I highly recommend Insala and believe they offer a distinct advantage to companies looking to advance their position in the ongoing war for talent.
Principal, Global Diversity and Inclusion
As part of a talent management initiative, United Nations Federal Credit Union (UNFCU), partnered with Insala to provide high potential/high performing staff with a structured vehicle to develop their career goals. From the onset, the Insala team provided exceptional client service, ensuring UNFCU had knowledgeable technical resources at its disposal throughout the implementation of its Career Development portal. Insala's partnership with UNFCU has directly impacted its ability to solidify an effective succession planning program and retain our high potential/high performing talent.
Manager, HR Administration
Insala provided a global online solution which helped align our business strategy with our management needs for the future. With their product, we were able to understand our skill gaps and develop our future leaders with the findings. This solution took one hour for an employee to complete, eliminated drawers of paperwork, and provided upper management instant visibility on our progress.

Content Manager Monster
This past winter was definitely remarkable. We found that the E-mail Broadcaster function is the easiest and fastest way to reach all our candidates to inform them of any changes in our office hours - including having to close due to inclement weather, delayed openings, or early closure. Additionally, we use this function to promote our seminars and workshops, and the career coaches can reach all of their candidates in one simple email. This tool is a tremendous asset.
Director, Administration & Client Relations The Schegg Group
We first started using EmploymentTalk™ in our practice in 2001, and have stuck with it ever since. What spurred us to stay on was both the professionalism and responsiveness of the Insala team, as well as the regular software upgrades we received, which ensured we had a cutting edge tool at any given time. Today, EmploymentTalk™ enables us to deliver a longer duration of outplacement services and thereby exceed our clients' expectations. As more and more organizations look to provide cost-effective, efficient and high-impact outplacement, we are able to meet their needs.
This is a fantastic product that will really help our workforce. The Insala team has done a great job maximizing the application capabilities and tailoring it to help our diverse workforce in transition. They've demonstrated a true partnership in providing us with expert assistance, met our special needs, and done so in a timely and cost effective manner.

Chairman and Managing Partner OI Partners, Americas
Our candidates are just blown away by the amount of research they get on specific companies and industries. Their ability to get REALLY good information, and MUCH MORE information than they typically could get on their own, and have it presented so quickly and effectively, is very powerful. It gives us a big sales and marketing advantage.
Vice President, Career Transition Services King & Bishop
Insala performed very well in creating our new corporate website. I was really pleased with the design options they offered. In addition, Insala representatives were wonderful to work with, responding quickly to our needs and delivering solutions in a very timely manner.
