It's important for companies to see their mentoring programs as a living, breathing thing that grows and changes with its employees. That's the best way to leverage it: allow for change and growth.
Chestnut Hill, MA (PRWEB) May 20, 2010
Management Mentors, a mentoring consulting firm that designs and implements world-class corporate mentoring programs, announced its latest thought paper "The Well-Leveraged Corporate Mentoring Program: Understanding How to Leverage Yours in Order to Attract, Develop, and Retain Top Talent."
The thought paper will serve as a resource for companies and organizations that have--or are considering--a formal mentoring program. People can download the white paper for free by visiting the [Management Mentors corporate website.
As for what inspired this topic? Rene Petrin, president of Management Mentors, says, "Most organizations have a decent understanding of corporate mentoring and its benefits. In fact, 70% of Fortune 500 companies have a formal mentoring program. But what we've noticed is that many of these companies don't leverage their programs to get the biggest bang for their mentoring buck. This thought paper shows companies how to get the biggest ROI through practical steps using social media, the company's website, and PR, just to name a few items."
In addition, the thought paper provides information on how to use a mentoring program to recruit new employees and develop mentoring behaviors in all employees, not just those in the program. The paper also talks about how to keep employees engaged once they've cycled through a mentoring program through things like speed mentoring and reverse mentoring.
Petrin adds, "It's important for companies to see their mentoring programs as a living, breathing thing that grows and changes with its employees. That's the best way to leverage it: allow for change and growth."
