Chronus, a leading provider of software for talent and career development, received a prestigious Silver Tech Impact Award from Seattle Business magazine within the SAAS category. The award was announced on Thursday, September 24, at a gala awards dinner.
Awards were presented to Seattle companies in recognition of technologies that have a “significant impact on business, industry, or society.” Chronus received the award for its mentoring software, which is used by organizations to run a variety of employee and student career mentoring programs in more than 145 countries worldwide.

It is based on the concept of connection – of joining people together to learn how they learn best: from each other. Through enabling mentoring connections, we help participants build new skills and we play a key role in improving careers and changing lives,” said Steve O’Brian, VP of Marketing at Chronus.
Chronus software for mentoring engages participants in productive learning while lowering the cost of program administration.

“One of the great joys of covering business in Washington State is to see the development of new technologies, new services, and new business models in every industry sector,” said Leslie Helm, executive editor of Seattle Business. “The Tech Impact Awards honor this innovation and recognize the effect it has on business and on society.”
