Why Reverse Mentoring?

Senior leaders possess valuable tribal knowledge and decades of experience. But understanding millennial employees, shifts in their workforce and the latest technology trends can be challenging. More and more, companies are turning to reverse mentoring, a model that pairs more experienced employees with younger employees in a 1-1 or in a group setting, to strengthen senior leaders and executive teams. Both employees and leaders benefit, with leaders gaining a more nuanced understanding of the millennial workforce and picking up skills that their tech-savvy colleagues consider second nature, while junior millennial employees gain valuable macro-level insights and perspectives.

A reverse mentoring program allows an organization to:

  • Enable knowledge sharing between baby boomers and millennials
  • Deepen connections between employees and senior management
  • Engage employees more fully across generations

70% of non-millennials say they are open to reverse mentoring.End Quote
