Connectr will offer a 20% exclusive discount to LPI members on Connectr’s platform products including Connectr for Employees and Candidate for Candidates.

From today, Connectr will be the first mentoring technology partner to join the LPI’s growing membership offer. Connectr and the LPI’s mission, vision and values are perfectly aligned as LPI’s CEO Edmund Monk referenced mentoring as the one of the three critical skills for learning professionals in 2023.

In summer 2022, Connectr’s platform gained LPI accreditation for its mentoring technology following a rigorous assessment process. Connectr received high praise for its ongoing dedication to outstanding customer care, integrity, and impact. The LPI is the foremost accreditation and membership body for the learning sector with a global reputation. In February 2023, Connectr won Bronze at the LPI’s flagship awards ceremony for ‘Learning Platform of the Year 2023’.

LPI, CEO Edmund Monk said: “The LPI is delighted to partner with Connectr who deliver an award-winning HR and L&D technology platform that attracts, retains, develops and progresses candidates from all backgrounds. Connectr enables their partners to deliver on their Diversity, Equity and Inclusion commitments and now at a discounted rate, our members can also access this powerful resource that will future proof their organisation with diverse, skilled and engaged talent.”

Connectr, CEO, Will Akerman said: ”We are thrilled to be the first mentoring technology partner with the LPI, both teams understand that L&D professionals need support when engaging and retaining talent. We hope that many LPI members sign up to Connectr’s mentoring platforms to ensure their organisations can access technology that empowers employees to progress and feel they belong to their place of work. We look forward to working closely with the LPI on research and development projects and to producing a series of webinars on how mentoring technology can alleviate L&D challenges.”
