Business Mentoring Report Issued

Management Mentors featured in Forrester Research's report called: "Drive Employee Talent Development Through Business Mentoring Programs"

Chestnut Hill, MA, August 11, 2010 – Management Mentors, a mentoring consulting firm that designs and implements world-class corporate mentoring programs, announced its inclusion in a report issued this week from Forrester Researchcalled "Drive Employee Talent Development Through Business Mentoring Programs." The report is available for purchase directly from Forrester.

According to the article abstract on the Forrester website, the report discusses, among other things, the emergence of mentoring technology, which helps companies manage a program with large groups of people. When asked about mentoring technology, Rene Petrin, president and founder of Management Mentors, says, "It's a definite game-changer in the field of business mentoring. Mentoring software can be used in variety of ways--not just in the management of the program. In fact, we've issued thought papers on these benefits, including our popular "The Well-Leveraged Mentoring Program: Understanding How to Leverage Yours in Order to Attract, Develop, and Retain Top Talent."

He adds, "The right online mentoring software helps integrate the human elements of relationships with all the productivity and technical capabilities of the Internet. We're thrilled that Forrester decided to research this topic in depth, and we hope that companies take the time to read and digest it."

Management Mentors' online mentoring software is called MentoringComplete. Because it's a web-based system, it doesn’t require any server set-up or IT involvement on the client-company's end. Designed with mentors, mentorees, and program managers in mind, MentoringComplete can be customized to meet the unique needs of businesses, organizations, and academic institutions. Clients currently using MentoringComplete include Enterprise Holdings, which is the parent company of the well-known Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alamo Rent A Car, and National Car Rental brands; U.S. Fish & Wildlife, Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC); City of Tallahassee; and Bombardier, Inc.
