You might assume that the main benefactor in any career mentorship program would be the mentee, right? Of course, it’s the mentee that has a need to learn. Well, if you ask the mentors participating in ERIEC’s Career Mentorship program about who benefits from a mentoring relationship, you might be surprised at the answer. It turns out that not only is participation in a career mentorship program advantageous to both the mentee and mentor, but it pays dividends to the mentor’s employer as well.
Here are FIVE of the many employer benefits of career mentorship:
Mentoring helped me to understand my own multicultural staff team and to appreciate the simple things that we take for granted. My modest investment of time has returned professional rewards for my mentee, myself and my company.
