While most everyone hopes to blossom in the workplace, a new generation is particularly keen on making professional strides. And with good reason—after all, a job isn’t just about performing daily tasks; it should award individuals with opportunities to learn, grow, and see their personal goals come into fruition. In short, a job should provide you with the framework you need to flourish

This workplace philosophy is what prompted us to develop Élo. Thanks to its many features and ease of use, the mentoring app supports the professional development of all its users, no matter where they are in their careers.

Here’s an overview of Élo’s features:

Anyone can be a mentee or mentor

Élo retools traditional mentoring frameworks so that all professionals have the opportunity to learn something new and develop their skills. Any user on the platform can participate as a mentor, mentee, or both. Why? Because everyone has something to learn and share.

All Élo participants are invited to mentor other professionals while also learning something from a mentor of their own. Whenever they’re ready, users registered as either mentees or mentors can simply fill in a few fields to take advantage of the dual mentoring experience. Pretty simple, right?

The mentoring experience is highly personalized

When completing an Élo profile, users are asked to fill in fields relating to their professional backgrounds, training, mentoring interests, non-work interests, and office life. By sharing these details, they present themselves not only as competent professionals but also accessible and passionate individuals. If users wish to share even more details about their career trajectory, they’re invited to include their LinkedIn profile URL. By giving such accurate and detailed overviews of Élo’s participants, profiles encourage prospective mentors and mentees to read all about a user before striking up a conversation. And remember, because Élo’s algorithm suggests matches based on shared interests, it’s important to have a completed profile!

Élo encourages inspiring exchanges between mentors and mentees

After finding the mentor that’s right for you, it’s time to get the conversation started. Not sure what to say? No worries—Élo guides users through the process of making first contact. Nothing’s more effective than a welcoming message that inspires a professional to engage, which is why Élo’s notification system alerts mentors whenever they receive a new message. It encourages them to respond as soon as possible! Also, mentor profiles indicate average response times and availability so that mentees know what to expect from the people they’re reaching out to.

Élo puts lots of thought into what its users want. The platform nurtures a mentoring environment that gives all parties the most rewarding experience possible! Indeed, it’s hard to cram every one of Élo’s features into a small article, which is why we invite you to discover them for yourself—FREE for 15 days! Say hello to Élo’s many features and engage with other passionate professionals, effortlessly and securely.
