How will you measure success? Who will you share the results with?

We have been measuring the success of our mentoring programs for over two decades and we’ve learned a thing or two in the process. We also know that your data analytics team or staff IO Psychologist might want to do it differently. Bottom line, we’re here to support you AND would HIGHLY recommend formally measuring the benefits of the program not merely from satisfaction rates, rather from the hard data of overall impact on retention, engagement, job performance, relationships, gains in key performance indicators, etc.

We leverage FormAssembly integrated with Salesforce and Conga for data collection and report generation. Then, we manually scrub all reports of proper names and any unique identifiers like projects, divisions, etc. The goal is that you receive anonymous feedback on the overall success of program participants. We can also alert you to partnerships in trouble or those not responding to surveys to allow you the opportunity to provide additional support to increase overall impact.


If you’re not ready to take on measurement day one, let us show you what we can do and you can also have your internal team collect your own data when the timing is right. We’ve had positive feedback from both methods. Just don’t miss this window of opportunity to formalize the impact – you’ll want your senior leaders and senior champions to see the value of what you are designing and implementing.
