Mentoring for Success
Business Growth

Embed mentoring that nurtures, develops your people and fits with your culture

 

How does it work?

 

Successful companies use mentoring to address complex human resource challenges such as increasing employee retention and improving workforce productivity. Corporate mentoring is on the rise and in fact, 71 percent of Fortune 500 companies offer mentoring programmes to their employees. Setting up a mentoring programme requires thought, planning and effort depending on whether it is formal or informal.  We help you through all the steps, including training and inducting mentors/mentees.  If your programme has more than 100 participants, you should consider using an online platform to monitor and measure all your mentoring activities and match employees to mentors. Depending on your organisation’s needs our intervention can focus one or more activities.
