elevate your organization through mentoring relationships
Today’s world recognizes the value of mentorship and how it can lift participants to new personal and professional heights. Like apprenticeships in prior generations, mentorships have the ability to pass on hard-earned, practical industry wisdom in ways that conventional training can’t match. Mentorship programs offer one of the best ways to grow the next wave of managers and executives from within the organization. However, the mechanics of facilitating mentor/mentee relationships and schedules within and especially between organizations is difficult. Engage Mentoring offers a scalable platform, from best-in-class software to newly launched mentorship services, that can help companies, associations, and higher education institutions eliminate the logistical challenges of mentorship programs and dramatically boost the benefits realized from helping employees, members, and students help each other.
It is important to look at why mentoring matters through the lens of attracting, developing and retaining your most valuable resource, your people. Our mission is to help organizations develop their people affordably, efficiently, and at scale. Having access to meaningful, diverse connections through mentorship is a foundational aspect of growing individuals and growing a culture of knowledge transfer. Establishing mentoring relationships does not solve all culture issues, but it helps eliminate communication silos and broaden perspectives.
Also, mentors can be candid about the poor communication skills of their mentees and teach them how to improve. Over time, the student with a mentor becomes an effective communicator, which will help them in their career.
Engage Mentoring helps organizations design, manage, and measure the impact of mentoring relationships. Our mentoring platform can bring a degree of convenience, depth, and effectiveness lacking in other mentorship efforts.
We connect mentees with mentors across any of dozens of topics. These could be topics of professional need / expertise or personal interests. Engage Mentoring bolsters its software with regular group mentorship sessions in which speakers spur group engagement around potential new lines of professional exploration, which can then lead to new mentorship directions. Engage Mentoring encourages participants to be both mentors and mentees. This dual role helps foster leadership capacity from both parties. This is helpful for program participants – including youth – to gain leadership experience and career mentoring.
Clients repeatedly note how cultural change took off in their organization when mentees learned who their resources were. At that point, a mentoring culture is born, and participants see a path to growth set before them. In addition, mentors take a personal stake in those they’re helping and work harder to elevate the organization. Many organizations assume that people understand and practice mentoring by default; however this is not the case. Organized workplace mentoring is a critical piece of a cultural strategy designed to attract, retain, and develop talent. Research shows that culture is 12.4 times more likely than pay to predict whether an employee stays or leaves. DEI helps people in need be seen and heard. Mentorship gives them a voice.
