"The modern approach to mentoring is leveraging technology. Oftentimes mentoring programs are pen to paper, or Excel files - it's a manual process. With Ten Thousand Coffees' smart algorithms and data matching we have an opportunity to capitalize in a really meaningful way, and embed this in our wider talent management systems. We're able to track progress and success."
