By providing human capital professionals with the latest research and tools, we can help them make a significant impact on the organizations for which they work.
Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) November 9, 2006
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator in talent management strategies, and MENTTIUM, a global leader in corporate mentoring models, announced today that MENTTIUM has renewed its sponsorship of HCI's Mentorship Strategies education and research track. The track is one of several topics addressed in HCI's Talent Development community of interest, a community HCI considers critical to organizations working to build competitive advantage.
Mentoring is especially important today. The workforce is aging, making knowledge transfer a priority. At the same time, the average tenure of workers is shortening and employers face retention challenges. Research shows that younger workers cite developmental opportunities as the number one consideration in joining or remaining with an organization.
Computer-based learning, flexible training options, and other developmental tools provide opportunities employees seek. In addition, mentorship, while not a new concept, has become a popular method of employee development. Nevertheless, many organizations are uncertain about mentoring.
"There has been a lot of confusion about mentoring, and how to implement an effective program," said Allan Schweyer, HCI's President & Executive Director. "Through this track, we have been able to provide organizations with valuable information and new ways to look at mentoring programs. We look forward to MENTTIUM's ongoing support of this important area."
The Mentorship Strategies track examines how mentoring relationships can be formed to last and deliver meaningful results. It explores best approaches to mentoring, including how relationships can be tracked and aligned to corporate goals and outcomes. A panel of expert advisors explores these practices, sharing information with human capital professionals through Webcasts, white papers, education, and other resources.
"We are pleased to continue our support of HCI's Mentorship Strategies learning track," said Lynn Sontag, CEO of MENTTIUM. "By providing human capital professionals with the latest research and tools, we can help them make a significant impact on the organizations for which they work."
