Connectr

Driving diversity in the legal sector

Connectr is here to help your firm meet its diversity goals via our powerful, award-winning mentoring software.

Why invest in mentoring software?

Connect talent at all levels

Mentoring enables mentors to provide mentees with the benefits of their knowledge, experience, and perspectives.

Improve socio-economic diversity

Mentoring helps firms identify future leaders from all social backgrounds and connect them with senior team members. This equips mentees with the learning and skills they need to progress quickly.

Drive retention through belonging

The more people feel they belong, the longer they will stay. At a time when so many legal firms are struggling with recruitment and retention, this has never been so important.

Continuing professional development (CPD)

Keep track of legal professionals’ ongoing learning and mentoring to ensure they meet and satisfy industry and practice CPD requirements. Build a culture of continuous learning and development for all employees.

Enable global connections

Connectr for Employees is a cloud-based system which means your team members can connect with each other wherever they are working in the world.

What our trusted partners say

  • The British Airways logo

    We introduced Connectr for our school engagement strategy, to ensure that students we engaged with at career events etc could be added to a talent pool and developed. The platform is freshly laid out and it has many functions - our favourites are the job board, modules and mentors. The reporting function is super handy for us to use too!

    Connectr helps us better understand the engagement we have with our target audience by providing real-time data on the impact of our content and the demographics of our users, which is vital for our programme. The software functionality enables the development and full customisation of engaging content, tracking the user journey and providing useful data analytics.

    Stephen, Corporate Responsibility Project Manager
  • We want to empower pupils to pursue STEM subjects at schools and universities and Connectr is the perfect partner to help us achieve this. The project is not only essential to provide a pipeline of talent for our business but will also improve the career prospects of thousands of young people from some of London’s most disadvantaged areas.

  • Heathrow Logo

    I was so impressed with Connectr. From choosing my mentor to reading the material and completing the activities, the whole process was seamless. I have a lot more confidence now, and I secured a secondment in my team as a Business Change Support Co-ordinator. I can honestly say that it has sparked something in me to re-address my whole life – not just at work, but in my personal life too. It changed my whole life for the better.
