Boost Employee Engagement and Retention with a Corporate Mentoring Program
In the current world of fast-growing technology and the “war for talent” environment, many businesses are experiencing a deficit of employee engagement and high attrition rates. In fact, the number-two reason employees leave an organization is due to a lack of career development opportunities, above leadership, culture, and compensation.1
If you’re looking to provide career development opportunities for your employees, consider a mentoring program. Studies have shown organizations with career development programs such as mentoring are six times more likely to increase employee engagement, and have a 2.5 times higher productivity rate than organizations that have yet to implement a career development strategy. (Scales, 2012).
Mentoring is a cost-effective strategy that harnesses the internal resources you already have to improve employee learning through one-to-one or group interactions. Mentoring connects people to learn how they learn best—from each other—in personalized, on-the-job experiences.
Best of all, mentoring is a strategy that can be drawn out across the entire employee lifecycle—from onboarding new hires to developing mid-level managers to transferring the knowledge of retiring executives to the younger organizational talent.
