Vantage Point Consulting, a market-leading Education and Workforce Development management consulting and products firm, today announced the acquisition of The Mentor Method’s existing mentor management platform and customers, to accelerate and ease implementation and operation of employer mentoring programs.
“Mentorship programs are difficult to kickstart, and 70% of companies that are implementing a mentorship program are doing so for the very first time,” said Vantage Point President and founder Cristine Carpenter. “The Mentor Method helps to accelerate and ease implementation and operation of employer mentoring programs, and this is important because formal mentorship structures have been found to increase employee retention by 40-50% for organizations who implement them.”
The Mentor Method software is trusted by some of the world’s largest brands including Amazon, Slalom, Lincoln Financial Group, and Silicon Labs, to support and mature inclusive employee mentorship programs, which facilitate talent engagement and more equitable advancement opportunities across their entire organization.
“Improving workplace relationships, employee engagement, and more equitable career advancement opportunities is critical in our increasingly remote workforce. The Mentor Method will help our clients attract and retain talent, create a more diverse workforce, and provide all employees support in their career progression.” said Carpenter. “We saw this SaaS offering as a natural complement to build upon our suite of interoperable Education and Workforce Development products. Vantage Point’s mission remains focused on advancing equity and inclusivity of education and career opportunities for every individual, and we are excited to offer the Mentor Method to our clients to build upon this vision.”
The founder of The Mentor Method, Janice Omadeke, previously reported the acquisition of the Company’s talent and prospective customers to TheCru, a New York based leadership development software company, in September 2022 as part of a separate acquisition agreement. Vantage Point’s separate acquisition of The Mentor Method SaaS technology platform and customer base completes the transition of Ms. Omadeke’s path blazing work and Vantage Point is excited to continue to evolve this platform for current and future clients.
