Building a Culture of Mentorship

A great organization does not only employ the best people in the industry, it also does a good job in developing and promoting their employees, who are the company’s most important resources.

However, developing your people is not just about sending someone to training class. What it takes is for all members of the organization – from the CEOs to the utility people – are willing to listen and help their colleagues.

Just like how the most successful people have mentors to look up to, organizations should create a culture of mentorship and develop its people. Here are some ways to establish a company of mentors.

Set organizational goals

Develop a mentoring program established on solid business goals. For instance, increase the diversity or make the organization a better place to work.

Set opportunities for all employees to develop

Many employees prefer staying in a company that not only provides a great job, but also great opportunities for them to develop their skills. Many employees leave the company because they are bored. One way to create an interesting working environment is through a mentorship program. Make sure that these programs cover all employees, including women and minority members.

Go all out in developing your people to their fullest potential

From training opportunities, creating challenging projects with fulfilling rewards, feedbacks, to coaching and mentorship programs, developing your people with real mentors creates life-changing experiences.
