Easily Administer a Virtual Mentoring Program to
Connect and Engage Your Employees

As people around the world continue to adjust to the "new normal" brought on by the spread of COVID-19, organizations are looking for a cost-effective and efficient way to connect and engage their employees. Many are finding success by implementing a virtual mentoring program that allows them to create remote connections, while still promoting social distancing.

Implement Virtual Mentoring

for Your Workforce

With a successful virtual mentoring program, you will give your employees the ability to continue a "face-to-face" connection, while effectively improving their engagement levels. In addition to boosting employee engagement, virtual mentoring enables you to: 

  • Cultivate relationships on a company-wide scale. A virtual mentoring program enables you to make the best matches, even if participants are located on opposite sides of the world.
  • Enable casual and intentional conversations. Virtual mentoring increases the likelihood that employees will send a quick message to their mentoring partner, instead of simply waiting for the next scheduled meeting.
  • Increase Employee Participation. When you open up mentoring to a larger population, more employee can participate. This translates into better mentor matches and more broad organizational benefits, like employee engagement.

Achieve Virtual Success

with the Right Strategy

Drive the success of your virtual mentoring program by implementing these best practices: 

  • Advocate for proactive check ins. Proactively manage the program to support your employees’ efforts to build connections. Check-in regularly and provide participants with resources to improve their mentoring relationship.
  • Engage everyone. This is a very challenging time, and many who brushed off a mentoring program in a more stable time may be grateful to participate now. Encourage all employee to join.
  • Provide thought leadership. Remember, your mentors and mentees are navigating uncharted waters right now. Remove barriers for participants by facilitating resources participants need to help them better understand their role – like examples for setting goals, useful blog and webinars, and providing participant training.

Our pilot Mentoring programme using the Insala platform has been well received by our participants and has given our Mentees the tools to choose 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.

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.
