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

We are a HR tech company with a difference.  

We enable some of the biggest companies in the world to maximise their most important asset: their people. Our heritage in diversity, equality and inclusion means we understand the importance of belonging. So, our experts in talent and tech joined forces with behavioural scientists to develop Connectr’s unique mentoring platform. Its features and functionality empower our partners to build a sense of belonging and inclusion for all their people, from candidates to employees.  

Connectr’s technology proudly: 

  • Delivers a new way to form connections
  • Turns D&I strategy into reality
  • Is the HR platform people love to use

That’s great for people, who feel empowered to drive their own futures. And brilliant for businesses to remain competitive, retain a talented and diverse workforce, and boost their bottom line.
