Why Mentoring Doesn’t Work
3 pages. Publication Date: Jun 01, 2003. Prod. #: C0306B-PDF-ENG
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. So, in an era in which training and development budgets are tight, making sure a mentoring program is all that it can be makes good bottom-line sense and will help both the mentor and the protege.
