Who we are

We help businesses build a sense of belonging with all people, from candidates to employees, and create a culture where everyone is included. We are a mentoring platform that makes a difference.

For businesses where people belong

Connectr is an award-winning, industry-leading provider of cloud-based mentoring software for enterprise-level organisations.   

We support many of the world’s largest employers to attract, recruit, progress and retain future and existing hires with high-impact, scalable mentoring programmes that drive engagement, inclusion and belonging via our online platforms – Connectr for Candidates and Connectr for Employees.  

Partners such as Deloitte, Thales, Heathrow Airport, British Airways, Burberry and Cognizant embed Connectr into their talent acquisition, learning and development and CSR strategies to build a culture that supports continuous learning for their future and existing employees. Connectr’s technology equips users with the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to launch, progress and accelerate their careers.   

Connectr’s wider services deliver bespoke, end-to-end talent acquisition campaigns that turn our partners’ ideal candidate cohort into their most empowered employees. 

Built upon a heritage in D&I, specialising in supporting and giving equal opportunity to all talent, Connectr’s technology and wider services level the playing field for people of all backgrounds. We enable our partners to prioritise and deliver on their DE&I commitments across all corners of the People strategy – and reap the benefits of a diverse workforce.

More recently, we were proud to be announced as the first mentoring technology company to receive accreditation by the Learning and Performance Institute. This accreditation demonstrates our commitment to performance improvement and the development of your people.
