Guider Global secures £2.4 million Seed investment from Fuel Ventures

May 12, 2022

to grow its career development platform and expand its international operations, after securing several US clients from it’s UK HQ last year. Following its work with renowned organisations, including M&S, LVMH, EY and Deloitte, to establish world-class mentoring programmes, Guider now has its sights set on broadening its work worldwide with enterprises keen to support their employees’ personal growth. The Great Resignation has already affected many businesses. Research suggests that 77% of 25-33 year olds are looking for a career change in the next year1, while 94% of employees admitted they would remain in a role if there were greater opportunities to ‘learn & grow’. In order to retain valuable talent, corporations need to be an attractive place to work and put the employee at the centre of its actions. Guider builds human connections within large enterprises by making mentoring more scalable and accessible. It serves those seeking new ways to improve employee retention, staff wellbeing, diversity & inclusion, and personal career development. It doesn’t stop with mentoring– Guider’s clients also use the platform to support their other employee development programmes, such as coaching, sponsorship, buddying, and mental health allies. Guider uses smart technology to match mentoring relationships and delivers real-time metrics to measure the success of the programmes. It encourages companies to harness their existing talent to build successful learning cultures, utilising mentorship to tackle disengagement. 84% of Guider users have experienced a positive effect using the system. Nick Ross, CEO and Founder of Guider said: “When mentoring is implemented as a long-term commitment it can have a positive impact on individuals and the organisation overall. Our partnership with Fuel Ventures means we have the capital to up the ante on the development of our smart platform and serve companies across the globe. Already, we’ve seen global brands deliver exceptional results when using our platform to anchor their mentoring schemes and build employee connections.” Mark Pearson from Fuel Ventures added: “There is no doubt that the world of work is changing and organisations, like Guider, are there to help large businesses with big, disparate teams to build better relationships with and between staff. Nick Ross and his team have the vision of creating a platform that makes mentoring more efficient and accessible. We are excited to be part of this journey.” ENDS https://metro.co.uk/2021/11/16/why-are-millennials-and-gen-z-leading-the-great-resignation-by-quitting-jobs-in-droves-15609002/ About Guider Born out of a desire to make mentoring more accessible, Guider is giving everyone access to the career development they deserve.
