If you are ready to start a mentoring program at your organization, or want to enhance your existing mentoring program for a greater return on investment, our consultants are here to help.
Roll Out a Mentoring Program
Once we evaluate your organization's readiness for a mentoring program, we help you conduct a cost/benefit analysis, design an action plan to implement a mentoring process that suits your needs, and advise you throughout your implementation.
Enhance Your Existing Program
We work with your organization to align your existing mentoring program with tangible, measurable business goals, and help you deliver superior career development results for your employees. Whether you want to improve employee retention, strengthen the talent pipeline, or develop a sense of camaraderie and mutual growth within the organization, we can help you with the solution.
Mentoring Evaluation ProgramsWe offer a unique evaluation process to help you identify whether a mentoring program is right for your organization or if your organization presently has a mentoring program, whether you are obtaining the results you desire. If you reply "no" to any of these questions, we can help.
- Does your organization presently have a mentoring program?
- Is it as effective as you would like for it to be?
- Do you have specific ways to measure its success?
- Have you tied your mentoring program to specific organizational business objectives?
- Do you have champions that support and reinforce the importance of mentoring?
- Are you successful in recruiting Mentors to participate?
Contact us today to learn more about our mentoring consulting services and other mentoring solutions.

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.
Our pilot Mentoring programme using the Insala platform has been well received by our participants and has given our Mentees the tools to chose an appropriate Mentor to meet their own specific development and career needs. Organisationally the portal is encouraging networking and collaboration across both business lines and functions and locations. The Insala team are professional, pragmatic and agile and have worked closely with us to deliver our pilot programme to meet our business needs
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.
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.
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.

Our partnership with Insala has allowed us to offer an entirely new service to our job seekers, which helps prepare them for getting their next job. The assessments and career advice tools offered through our site continue to be successful, and the seamless support provided has proven very efficient. Insala consistently responds in a swift fashion whenever we need assistance, and continues to provide us with a very professional service.
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.
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.

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.
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.

One way in which we demonstrate our commitment to employees is to provide opportunities for them to develop; mentoring is an important component of employee development in North America. Insala supported us in leveraging formal mechanisms and provided us best practices to launch a sustainable mentor program. The MORE Workshop was our pivotal starting point, strategizing with stakeholders to build a practical plan for implementation including communication, training, metrics, and more. The outcome has been a clear benefit for participants and for Solvay.
