DENVER, September 13, 2011— Triple Creek, the leader in enterprise mentoring and structured social learning, today announced that Agilent Technologies Inc. has chosen Open Mentoring® 5 to power its Agilent Shared Knowledge (ASK) Network. Launched in July, ASK is Agilent’s enterprise-wide knowledge-sharing system designed to increase the transfer of technology and expertise between different company groups, increase customer-focused innovation and improve time to market.
With 18,500 employees serving customers in more than 100 countries, Agilent has long understood the importance of efficient enterprise-wide knowledge transfer and learning. Agilent first adopted Triple Creek’s Open Mentoring platform in 2002, utilizing it to support its high-potential employee mentoring program. Internal survey and benchmarking results demonstrated that 89 percent of learners confirmed that they had gained useful business knowledge, perspective and skills that enabled them to be more effective in their jobs. Agilent then began to roll out Open Mentoring to additional select participant groups, gradually growing the role of Open Mentoring in fostering, improving and growing people-to-people collaborative learning across its employee ranks.

Launched in December 2010, Open Mentoring 5 builds on Triple Creek’s rich history of technology innovation, expert consulting services and knowledge contributions to the enterprise mentoring and structured social learning space. Available as a SaaS offering, the platform features an intelligent matching algorithm to create quality learner-advisor connections, a flexible engagement platform that enables multiple types (situational, topical or career development) of learning connections, and a proprietary reporting dashboard for measuring workforce competency gaps and analyzing gains made. Open Mentoring 5 is highly interoperable, connecting with an organization’s existing talent or performance management software.
“Agilent is the latest example of the importance of cross-organization sharing of expertise, skills and knowledge. As large organizations adapt to the needs of a rapidly changing workforce, efficient mentoring practices will become increasingly critical to attracting, retaining and growing talent and ultimately staying competitive in the global market,” said Randy Emelo, President and CEO, Triple Creek. “With more than 100 customers, and with an increasing number of them on our newest platform, we look forward to enabling more Fortune 500 organizations to achieve their enterprise mentoring and structured social learning goals.”
