Why was this not done before?!

My experience so far has been excellent. I'm looking to introduce it across the business, when the time is right. Meanwhile I've used it for my own professional development and already recommended it to individuals seeking a personal mentor outside the business. Pushfar are open to feedback and seem to work collaboratively with their audience and key advisers to continue to improve the system. Its a competitively priced platform and the benefits within an organisation to enhance talent and leadership development programmes is sizeable.

Pros

Its a simple yet effective platform. Powerful in that it can connect so many people actively seeking to mentor or be a mentee - so the experience starts as a positive one straight away. Its easy to set yourself up and I found a mentor quickly. The platform continues to improve but the functionality for the purpose is there and can only continue to get better.

Cons

Initial navigation to setting up the meeting/goals but this has already improved.

Fantastic Platform to Run Mentoring Schemes

PushFar offers us a great way to manage and run mentoring schemes, which we used to do in a very limited way. Being able to run mentoring efficiently and see direct value is great. The platform is extremely easy to navigate and understand and I would highly recommend it.

Pros

PushFar is extremely easy to use, while offering a comprehensive and extensive list of features to help our employees manage their mentoring relationships, and management to see what is happening. Great onboarding experience (took less than a week from contract to our first mentor matches), and very innovative feature releases.

Cons

Nothing yet. Any features lacking are always quickly added by their team.

Mentor

I have gained some mentees and I have been approached too.

Pros

Having retired from working with people throughout my life career, I wanted to give something back. I am so pleased to have found Push Far which gives me access to people looking for Mentors and Mentees looking for Mentors. I have had people contact me and I have contacted others offering help. The system is easy to use. I particularly like the messaging system and the diary reminders which link to my own calendar.

Cons

Nothing - the software is excellent. I like the way it works for me.

Quantifies the abstract value of mentorship

The PushFar team are so great to work with and setup for our team was a breeze! We've made connections across our portfolio companies that likely wouldn't have emerged without PushFar. Thanks :)

Pros

It quantifies the value and productivity of mentorship automatically, which was extremely difficult when we had our teams setting up these schemes manually. Very easy to monitor who's engaged on both sides. Requires relatively little input/effort from employees to be valuable.

Cons

I suppose the UI could be improved in a few areas but it hasn't been a problem for us, you'll get a hang of the platform quickly.

Very useful tool

Pros

PushFar has enabled me to find a mentor and set goals to help me progress in my career. The platform is very easy to use, informative and makes me feel more confident as I have an experienced mentor to talk to and ask for advice.

Cons

I have nothing negative to comment about the platform at this time.

Great mentoring tool

The team at PushFar were great to work with - thumbs up from me.

Pros

It's a great tool - I haven't used something like this before and it's great how easy it is to find a mentor to work with.

Cons

Whilst the tool works well, I think the look and feel could be a bit slicker.

Great Product

We were manually implementing various mentor schemes internally and this has made our job far easier. And cut down the time to match and pair massively.

Pros

Great access to company employees and relevant matching. The open-source directory also gives you access to experts outside of the company to provide different perspectives.

Cons

More access to global experts outside the company

Thanks, Olly! We're working hard on additional infrastructure changes, which are launching in the next 2 weeks, to significantly improve speeds. As always, if you have any further thoughts or feedback, we'd always love to hear it.
