With Growthspace we launched an internal mentorship program with dozens of participants! Onboarding and matching were quick and easy, and we were able to track progress and make sure the program is moving forward for all participants. The feedback from mentors and mentees was amazing. Employees reported having an engaging, meaningful, and impactful experience and we already see the results.”

How it works
Use internal mentoring to cultivate the right culture for your organization’s success
You work hard to shape the right organizational culture that encourages people to work together to achieve common goals and continuously grow as people and professionals. Internal mentoring helps you cultivate and preserve that culture from within.
Companies that encourage a culture of mobility and growth are 5X more likely to be recognized as great places to work and more than 3X more likely to see increased innovation.”

Frequently asked questions
How do you know how to match our mentors and mentees?
An incredibly granular skills taxonomy of 80+ areas of expertise allows us to tag each mentor on their distinct strengths, along with data on their background, language, availability, and more. We couple that with the specific skills the employee needs to develop to achieve their goal and that way we create the most effective match your organization has to offer.
What skills can employees work on?
That depends on your organization’s know-how and values. You can customize the taxonomy so mentors are tagged on, and employees can choose from the skills and expertise you have available and find valuable.
Are five sessions enough to see real progress?
Yes! To get employee development right, you need focus. That’s why we offer five-session sprints, which we found to be the most effective at achieving a well-defined goal. In addition, the short sprints make it easy to get buy-in from mentors and managers, they promote focus, so mentors and mentees know what they’re working on in each session, and drive high utilization and a positive experience.
What’s the time commitment required from mentors and mentees?
A program typically consists of five one-hour sessions over 8-10 weeks. To get the most out of the program, we encourage mentors and mentees to conclude each session with practical takeaways and specific action items to implement between sessions. This can take as long or as short as they find beneficial.
