Arcadis scales mentoring with Torch

With a need for structured mentorship, Arcadis, a global design, engineering, and consulting company, launched a pilot mentoring program with Torch to support a select group of employees. Upon seeing success, they scaled to reach more people through Torch’s mentoring software.

Challenge
Support employees in developing non-technical skills like leadership, conflict management, and strategic planning to support line managers, aspiring leaders, new hires, and more.

Solution
An internal mentoring program using Torch’s software that connects people across business lines to build soft skills and help grow careers internally.
