There are many challenges employees face in today’s rapidly changing workplace environments. Discovering how to steer through various potential career paths and development opportunities can leave young professionals feeling alone in their search for success. Although mentoring relationships have been prevalent for many years, many organizations are beginning to understand the need to assist employee development in order to thrive in today’s shifting and competitive markets.
What is a mentorship?
Mentoring is a relationship where a more senior, experienced individual – a mentor – provides developmental guidance to a more junior, less experienced person – a mentee. A mentor can greatly benefit a mentee not only by providing career building opportunities, but also through cultivating a relationship and providing personal guidance.
