MentorCloud is a leading provider of cloud-based employee development and engagement solutions for organizations. Delivered as a SaaS platform, MentorCloud helps organizations to intelligently match employees with suitable subject-matter experts, mentors, and peers, and facilitate meaningful conversations according to employees’ goals, interests, skills, and knowledge needs.
The platform provides real-time analytics, reports, and communication tools for managers to find, grow, and retain star employees. Managers can also identify experts, as well as improve talent utilization and mobility across organization’s divisions and work locations. Employees rely on the platform to gain visibility, accelerate goals achievement, and advance their careers, by leveraging access to curated content (videos, articles) and subject-matter experts anywhere in the organization. Globally, major workplace and demographic trends are driving need for an employee-focused platform like MentorCloud.
- In June 2013, Gallup released new findings on the “State of the American Workplace.”1 The report found that the vast majority of U.S. workers – 70% – are “not engaged” or “actively disengaged” at work, meaning they are emotionally disconnected from their workplace and are less likely to be productive. Actively disengaged employees alone cost the U.S. between $450 billion to $550 billion each year in lost productivity.
- Roughly 10,000 baby boomers will turn 65 every day for the next 16 years2 – over 58 million in total – and will soon be leaving the workforce. These workers are being replaced by Millennials, who are primarily driven by meaning and purpose in their jobs and seek employers that foster learning and continuous career growth.
As a result, HR executives and CxOs have made employee engagement, productivity, retention, and the preservation of institutional wisdom (i.e. practical experiences of boomers gained over decades of working) their high priority issues. Organizations have no choice but to invest in new strategies and solutions that cater to a multi-generational workforce, with different work habits, learning patterns, employer loyalty levels, career ambitions and technology skills. The MentorCloud platform directly meets this urgent need in organizations.
