Virtual Mentoring in a Time of Crisis: Lessons from the Pandemic
Mentoring conversations about career trajectories and development plans are pivoting to caring check-ins and discussions about how the current crisis is impacting people emotionally, as well as professionally. Knowing this shift in needs is imperative now, and might be here to stay for a while, we teamed up with HR.com to host a webinar showcasing the lessons we’ve learned during this pandemic, and how customers are supporting now-remote employees through these trying times.
Chronus CEO, Seena Mortazavi, explains how organizations can best support their teams during these socially isolating times by utilizing virtual mentoring in creative ways, from onboarding programs for new additions to mentoring circles for support and more.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- Why social distancing is taking a toll on the mental health of workers
- How much social isolation is costing individuals and organizations
- Why building engagement and morale are imperative
- Real-world examples of organizations who have pivoted existing mentoring programs or created new ones in order to address these growing needs
