Des Moines, IA (PRWEB) November 18, 2014
Prositions, Inc. today announced a new program to help veterans succeed on the job. The company is offering its newest cloud-based mentoring and collaboration software, MentorString, free to any organization that will use it to help veterans who need coaching and mentoring at work. According to a study published in the Journal of Psychology, research has shown that employees who receive mentoring are more likely to be promoted faster and receive more frequent pay raises than employees who don’t have access to these services.
“We started offering complimentary career coaching and mentoring services to veterans in 2011, when they started returning from Iraq and Afghanistan,” said Robin Salsberry, President of Prositions, Inc. “This program was very successful, so we expanded our offering in 2012 and 2013 to include any veteran who needed assistance.”
First released in 2014, MentorString is a revolutionary new software application that enables organizations to leverage virtual mentoring and secure social collaboration technology. The platform supports most types of mentoring programs, including career mentoring, performance coaching, leadership coaching, performance improvement, and on-boarding programs. It also includes built-in mentoring tips and a brand new library of MOOC-style videos based on the leading industry experts in mentoring skills, leadership skills and supervisory techniques.
“Now that many veterans have successfully entered the civilian workforce, they need to have continued encouragement and support from experienced leaders and mentors within those organizations,” said Craig Robbins, Director of Leadership Services and head of Prositions’ Veterans Program. “MentorString helps organizations automate the mentoring process and makes it much more cost effective and convenient for both the veteran and mentor to work together.”
Organizations that are interested in obtaining more information about, or participating in, this free program to support their internal employee veteran groups should contact Prositions at [email protected] or visit http://www.prositions.com.
