We’ve partnered with 10KC to help every employee build the internal network they need to stay engaged, connected, and productive in their role.


Empower every employee to own their personal development

When employees are looking to learn something new, they’re more likely to turn to a colleague or a mentor first. That’s because 80% of learning happens informally. But, informal learning is often left to chance. 10KC makes it easier for every employee to find informal development opportunities that help them achieve their development goals, by connecting them with colleagues who can offer mentorship, teach them a new skill, share career advice or a new perspective.


How it works

After they’ve met, we’ll send a survey to ask them about their conversation, so we can ensure employees are getting the most out of the experience. It takes less than an hour each month. And you can rest assured every minute will be well spent.


How your team can take advantage of 10KC
