Insala helped address some of the key challenges we faced at Unilever, which is virtual mentoring, as many of our mentees and mentors are not in the same geographic location. Insala's mentoring consultant, Judy Corner, is a true mentoring specialist and a highly engaging individual.

At BPI, we pride ourselves on our responsiveness to the needs of both existing and potential customers. Insala's fast and reliable customer service and support have enabled us to do just that. When BPI UK were faced with a tight deadline to develop a career center website for a customer, Insala quickly met our needs. The Insala team were able to translate the BPI France website into British English and launch the website in record time. As a result, we were able to deliver our career center services to the customer with timescales that exceeded their expectations.

I worked with Judy Corner of Insala to develop a customized mentoring program for International Paper. Judy provided a degree of confidence to the Chairman's Diversity Council as she presented a pragmatic, visionary, long term perspective on the benefits to be gained from Insala's program. Following the M.O.R.E. workshop, participants were surveyed on session effectiveness and Insala received a 100% favorable rating on the value of the day. I highly recommend Insala and believe they offer a distinct advantage to companies looking to advance their position in the ongoing war for talent.

As part of a talent management initiative, United Nations Federal Credit Union (UNFCU), partnered with Insala to provide high potential/high performing staff with a structured vehicle to develop their career goals. From the onset, the Insala team provided exceptional client service, ensuring UNFCU had knowledgeable technical resources at its disposal throughout the implementation of its Career Development portal. Insala's partnership with UNFCU has directly impacted its ability to solidify an effective succession planning program and retain our high potential/high performing talent.

Insala provided a global online solution which helped align our business strategy with our management needs for the future. With their product, we were able to understand our skill gaps and develop our future leaders with the findings. This solution took one hour for an employee to complete, eliminated drawers of paperwork, and provided upper management instant visibility on our progress.

Content Manager Monster
This past winter was definitely remarkable. We found that the E-mail Broadcaster function is the easiest and fastest way to reach all our candidates to inform them of any changes in our office hours - including having to close due to inclement weather, delayed openings, or early closure. Additionally, we use this function to promote our seminars and workshops, and the career coaches can reach all of their candidates in one simple email. This tool is a tremendous asset.
Director, Administration & Client Relations The Schegg Group
We first started using EmploymentTalk™ in our practice in 2001, and have stuck with it ever since. What spurred us to stay on was both the professionalism and responsiveness of the Insala team, as well as the regular software upgrades we received, which ensured we had a cutting edge tool at any given time. Today, EmploymentTalk™ enables us to deliver a longer duration of outplacement services and thereby exceed our clients' expectations. As more and more organizations look to provide cost-effective, efficient and high-impact outplacement, we are able to meet their needs.
This is a fantastic product that will really help our workforce. The Insala team has done a great job maximizing the application capabilities and tailoring it to help our diverse workforce in transition. They've demonstrated a true partnership in providing us with expert assistance, met our special needs, and done so in a timely and cost effective manner.

Our candidates are just blown away by the amount of research they get on specific companies and industries. Their ability to get REALLY good information, and MUCH MORE information than they typically could get on their own, and have it presented so quickly and effectively, is very powerful. It gives us a big sales and marketing advantage.
Vice President, Career Transition Services King & Bishop
Insala performed very well in creating our new corporate website. I was really pleased with the design options they offered. In addition, Insala representatives were wonderful to work with, responding quickly to our needs and delivering solutions in a very timely manner.

I once observed a situation in which an individual (weíll call him "Bob") asked two of his colleagues for advice on how to solve a problem in a project he was working on. One was male ("George"), and one was female ("Liz"). Bob went to Liz for advice first, and she suggested a solution to Bob. About four days later, Bob presented the same problem to George, who suggested the same solution that Liz had proposed four days earlier.

The preservation of institutional knowledge has always been an essential part of any organizationís agenda. You spend too much time developing knowledge and skills to simply let it go every time someone relocates or retires. Todayís workplace is going through some drastic changes that make the subject of knowledge transfer more important than ever. As a result, many companies are turning to mentoring programs in order to capture and preserve the knowledge of experienced employees.

Employee engagement is not and cannot be a one-way street. Whether or not youíre aware of it, youíre defining how your employees perceive their value to your organization with the support you provide them, the practices and direction you expect them to follow, and the culture you expect them to engage in.

Itís often possible to save a mentoring partnership thatís on the rocks, but itís not always obvious to a program administrator that a mentoring partnership is in trouble until itís too late. Any time that the partnership can be saved, however, it always comes back to one thing: communication.

Mentoring is a very human development method - and thatís definitely part of the beauty of it. One of the reasons mentoring tends to work as well as it does within organizations is precisely because itís individual-to-individual, and facilitates conversations and connections between employees. These conversations and connections mean a few really great things for the organization, among them stronger bonds between and across teams, a greater wealth of shared knowledge, and more developed people overall. However, the flipside to the "humanness" of using mentoring as a developmental method is the subjectivity that comes along with it.
