UK Marketplace through Its Alliance with Shine People and

Boston-based corporate mentoring company aligns itself with London-based organization, which specializes in the attraction, development, and retention of talent.

Chestnut Hill, MA, July 14, 2009 - Management Mentors, a mentoring consulting firm that designs and implements world-class corporate mentoring programs, announced today the introduction of its online mentoring software, MentoringComplete, to the UK marketplace through its alliance with Shine People and Places, Ltd., a London-based company that helps clients attract, develop, and retain quality talent. The alliance highlights the strong connection between corporate mentoring and talent development and management. Shine People and Places will head up sales of MentoringComplete in the United Kingdom.

MentoringComplete, which is online mentoring software, doesn't require any server set-up or IT involvement on the client company's end. All users need to access the system is a web browser and the Internet. Designed with mentors, mentorees, and program managers in mind, MentoringComplete can be customized to meet the unique needs of businesses, organizations, and academic institutions.

 "Proper mentoring helps with attracting and retaining top talent, which is why I was drawn to an alliance with Shine People and Places," said Rene Petrin, president and founder of Management Mentors. "The folks at Shine really 'get' what mentoring is all about, and they're excited to offer MentoringComplete to their clients as a tool to assist in mentoring and talent management."

Alessandra Alonso, director of Shine People and Places, echoes Petrin's sentiments: "For quite some time, I've been interested in mentoring and what a formal mentoring program could offer both individuals and the businesses they worked for. Over the past five years, my colleagues at Shine and I have been advising companies and individuals on different aspects of personal and professional development. Being able to offer MentoringComplete is as exciting for us as we think it will be for our clients who can use the software as a way to implement, manage, and maintain their mentoring programs."
