How You Will Benefit

Mentoring is not just for fast-tracked, star-potential employees. Everyone from Generation Z (the newest employees in the workforce) to CEOs can benefit from having a mentor. And for good reason: a study by Gartner found that mentoring resulted in promotions and salary increases at a higher rate for both mentees and mentors than those who didn’t participate at all. Retention rates for both groups were higher than for non-participants as well. Mentoring relationships no doubt have great reciprocal value. This program will show you how to establish and maintain a successful mentoring relationship from both the perspective of a mentor and a mentee to ensure you gain the most from the opportunity.
