To ensure that your new employees are abreast with your company's policies and workings, setting up a Mentoring Program can be beneficial. However, having the right intentions is not always enough. You should also put in some effort to develop and implement a mentoring program for new employees at all stages. Alternatively, you could save considerable resources and rely on professional coaching services that regularly provide Mentoring Programs for employees.
Before you begin, list down the objectives of the mentoring program and what you hope to achieve at the end of each session.
You could also decide the type of arrangement most suitable for mentoring – would you prefer a formal or an informal setting or whether you prefer individual or group mentoring. With help from the right professionals at Let's-Live Coaching, you can develop a practical, result oriented and resourceful Mentoring Program.
We currently offer these sessions that last 3 months, 6 months and 12 months, depending on the nature of the sessions and the position of the employee.
Employee Mentoring Programs are generally scheduled over a period of a few months. Depending on the how intensive the program is geared to be, we offer program sessions that last between three months and a year. Apart from working with new employees in your organization, we also organize training sessions for senior professionals who can provide mentorship themselves.
However, before we begin working with your senior professionals, it is important to choose the right mentors. Start by choosing positive employees that are agile, flexible, enthusiastic and open minded. You can also pair up mentors and employees based on their work experience, hobbies, skills and other common grounds.
A reliable way to find the right mentors for unique new employees is to talk to managers who directly work with senior employees and hold discussions on their strengths and weaknesses.
