How to start a mentoring programme
Mentoring programmes provides a framework for individual learning processen where mentees (most often the less experienced persons) are matched with mentors (most often the more experienced persons). Mentors and mentees are matched with the aim of creating effective, well-balanced learning processes that meet the organisations' strategic objectivities.
Improving employee engagement, attracting talents, and increasing employee retention are just some of the benefits of mentoring. Mentoring programmes create opportunities for learning and sharing, for dialogues across organisational boundaries, and build strong learning cultures. Additionally, mentoring can increase mobility and visibility of talents across the organisation, while strengthening loyalty around common goals and values. Especially in moments of transition and disruption mentoring can be the tool that creates cohesion and increases retention.
