This week, we’d like to recommend an insightful article on workforce mentoring programs published by HR Certification Institute (HRCI). The HRCI is an internationally recognized certifying organization for HR professionals and is also a Chronus customer. The article incorporates the opinions of experts in Mentoring, including our very own Vetri Vellore, CEO of Chronus.
Titled, “Mentoring, your Road map to success”, the article by Nona Chigewe, compares an organization’s journey in the corporate world to a “road trip”. Nona points out that, “Mentoring is a mapping tool used to direct organizations and their employees to their final destination, their own private island called success”. She hits the nail on the head when she equates Mentoring to a GPS! “Whenever there is a need to reduce the time it takes to transfer knowledge and continue to move at the current pace of business, a mentor program is a great platform to facilitate the process”, she explains.
Nona also scrutinizes mentoring from different points of view – mentees, mentors and organizations as whole. In addition, she explains how all the stakeholders gain equally from mentoring.
If you’re interested in starting a workforce mentoring program, Mentoring, your road map to success is a great read.
