👋 Hi!

🎵 "Summer's here and the time is right to go racing"... to success with your mentorship programs!

We're back at it with another newsletter for the month of June: This month, we're sharing the feedback we've heard from our users in mentorship programs to help ensure that your programs are set up for success.

If you could use some new processes to hire and retain talent, you're invited to our Lunch and Learn on June 21st.

Matchmaking: The key to mentorship

The Mentorly team recently surveyed our users that are in mentorship programs to learn about the biggest challenges they face with mentorship.

Responses showed that 27% of program members said that finding the right mentor or the right fit was a huge obstacle when seeking or offering mentorship.

The great news? Mentorly has the solution! 🤩

Our Smart Matching and matching insights can help you make educated and data-supported matches - giving you the confidence that you're helping your program members get the most out of mentorship.

When you activate a match on Mentorly, it also gives both direct access to one another's profiles, where they can start messaging right away and book sessions together!

What's more is that by activating a match, an automatic email is sent to both the mentor and mentee to let them know they have a new match to check out - so there's less for you to do as a program manager!

Ready to create new matches?

If you already have matches made for your program, consider creating more matches. It only takes less than a minute for each match you make!

For best engagement results and success, we recommend 1-3 mentor matches per mentee of your program.

If you haven't opted for matching in your program yet, no worries - your Mentorly Success Advisor or Mentorly Support team is here to help you set up! To learn more about our Smart Matching, check out this article.
