The Mentorloop Sentiment feedback is crucial for us to be able to ensure participants are having positive experiences:
Drew & Matilda
Drew (mentor)“Matilda has been incredible in her application and commitment to self-growth over the last 12 months - her attention to detail and willingness to grow and learn within nib has been amazing to watch unfold.”
Matilda (mentee)“Drew has been an absolute legend. He is an amazing mentor who holds me accountable and truly has helped me grow. I have smashed out so many goals so far and it has only been a couple of months. Really thankful for him.”
Sally & Josie
Sally (mentor)“Has been an easy relationship from the start - Josie is open to ideas and reflection and is making the most of the opportunity.”
Josie (mentee) “I am really enjoying my catch ups with Sally. They help me set myself up and focus for the week as a leader. Her input and suggestions have been helpful towards some difficult tasks I've had to manage.”
Mentorloop has given employees a formal structure to learn through each other, and cultivated a great sense of connection between employees, regardless of where they are based in the organisation or around the world.
At nib, we have a hybrid working approach, which means that our employees work outside the office most of the time and visit our hubs to connect and collaborate for specific events, meetings or activities.
That’s why Mentorloop is a good fit for us. It allows people to connect for the purpose of their own self-development, with someone who they might not otherwise have the opportunity to meet in a typical office environment.
This is reflected by 91% of mentor/mentee relationships occurring across different teams and 72% across different locations including Newcastle, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Wellington, and Cork.
More recently, Mentorloop has been incorporated into our Graduate Program to ensure graduates are connected with a different part of the business other than their team. This has helped them to gain a better, more rounded understanding of the business while providing an additional touchpoint along their development journey.
The value of these connections can’t be expressed enough and is clearly reflected in participant’s sentiment and our high mentoring quality score.

“Mentorloop has given employees a formal structure to learn through each other, and cultivated a great sense of connection between employees, regardless of where they are based in the organisation or around the world.”

“The nib Mentoring Program provides an opportunity for employees to establish goals and track their own progress throughout the mentoring partnership. We believe this provides the support that is needed to set our people up for success”.
– Kate Lloyd, Learning & Organisational Development Advisor
The right mentoring program should level the playing field to empower entire cohorts of people: workplaces, member associations, social groups and educational institutions. Equality should be a cherished value so that every individual can thrive—whoever they are, whatever their background, however they worship or whomever they love. But we can’t arrive at equality without it’s often forgotten partner, equity.
Being a Mentoring Program Coordinator is an incredibly rewarding experience that positively impacts the lives of many. And while mentoring programs don’t fully run themselves (even though Mentorloop can do a great deal of the heavy lifting!), they do require a point of contact that can steer the program in the right direction for the organisation that is running one.
This is Part 8 of our 10-part series on the 10 Key Qualities and Habits of a Highly Effective Mentor.
In this post, we’ll look at how mentors can successfully build quality feedback into their mentoring. Quality feedback is priceless because it clarifies expectations, helps people learn from their mistakes, and builds confidence. It also allows mentees to more effectively take what their mentors say and turn it into action.
