Mentoring in the Workplace 2022

The concept of mentoring is certainly not something new. In fact, the word originates from a character in Homer’s classic poem “The Odyssey,” which dates back to three millennia ago.

But that doesn’t mean that the concept has been static. Traditional mentoring relationships have often formed naturally, with older people often passing along knowledge and wisdom to younger ones. Structured mentoring programs in organizations have become a powerful tool for learning and development. A core set of best practices have emerged to guide organizations.

To better understand this evolution and current trends, we partnered with the Research Institute to hear from over 330 industry professionals in virtually every industry vertical.

In this study, we explore a variety of related topics:

  • The global state of mentoring today
  • The characteristics and purpose of mentoring programs
  • Success and satisfaction with mentoring programs
  • The various types of mentoring and how they are delivered
  • How organizations with more successful mentoring programs tend to differ from organizations with less successful programs

A guide to unleashing the hidden value in your organisation through high impact strategic mentoring programs.

Most human beings and organisations have one thing in common – they both want to do better. But it’s hard for one to achieve without the other. When you can harness both you can achieve great things.

Unfortunately, most organisational structures are hierarchical, which may aid efficiency but not necessarily “real” human interaction.

Solving the human equation is the cornerstone of great culture and the larger and more diverse the workforce, the more challenging it becomes, even before we factor in things like location, technology and pay rates.

Well designed and managed mentoring programs can have a dramatic impact on workplace culture and people engagement. A strategic mentoring program transcends hierarchy, creating relationships and interactions to build individual and hence organisational value.

In this guide we present you with proven practical insights on how to design, build, implement and automate a high influence mentoring program and create your own ripple effect.
