Your frequently asked questions, answered

Why is mentoring so essential for talent development?

When you learn a skill from someone you trust, that knowledge is far more likely to stick than if you learn it elsewhere. This is what makes mentoring and peer learning so effective for talent development.

On top of upskilling, mentoring widens networks and opens doors for your people to grow. When talent feels nurtured, employees are more likely to feel valued, leading to better retention across the board.

How do I start a workplace mentoring program?

Starting a mentoring program involves some careful planning. Luckily, we’ve put together this step by step guide to designing your mentoring program to help you.

You’ll need to consider factors such as the size and ambition of your program, as well as understand what you hope to achieve through mentoring. With proper preparation you can prevent problems later down the line, so make sure you invest time in the planning stages!

How can I embed mentoring in my talent development program?

Mentoring and peer learning programs can form an integral part of your talent offering. Embedding them across the organisation is easy with Guider. Our integrations mean that the Guider platform is simple to use and works with your tech.

Mentoring can multiply the effects of your development programs, as your people will share their knowledge with others and become mentors in future.

What is mentoring software?

If you’re considering starting a mentoring program, you’ve likely come across mentoring software, such as Guider. There are different types of mentoring software but they are all designed to facilitate the organisation and management of effective mentoring programs.

This includes matching mentors and mentees, scheduling sessions, and tracking progress. If you want to scale your mentoring program effectively, mentoring software is essential. You can learn more about mentoring software on our blog.

What makes Guider different to other mentoring platforms?

Many of our customers come to us having tried our competitors. We invest in our platform to make it the best user experience on the market. On top of this, we provide unparalleled customer support as well as the resources you need to grow mentoring in your organisation.

How much support do we get from Guider?

We’re with you every step of the way from our consultative sales approach through to our Customer Success and Engagement teams. We partner with you to make your programs a success and have a wealth of expertise and resources to support.

When should I invest in mentoring software?

There’s no right or wrong time to invest in mentoring software. We generally say that for a small program you can manage matching manually.

However, if you want to scale your efforts, track and report on progress and gain expert support – mentoring software is for you. We can help you start, maintain or scale a program and will remove the admin burden of mentoring for your team.
