Mentoring today is much different than it was years ago, when perhaps an older man who had been in the business for years dispensed wisdom to a young, eager new hire. For one thing, it is much more reciprocal, and mentoring rarely comes from just one person. What hasn’t changed is the importance of mentoring, as a mentoring program not only improves employees’ skills, it also increases their loyalty to the company.
