On-the-job mentorships can benefit any Kitchener organization, from the smallest upstart, to the biggest globally-recognized company. While some businesses have formal mentoring programs for their employees, others allow mentorships to develop naturally. If your company is in the second category, the right workplace solutions can help you to set a tone and mood that encourages mentoring.
There are several ways to arrange your workplace setting to facilitate organic mentoring between veteran and newer staff members. These methods include the following:
Does this mean that you should give up on formal mentoring programs? Not at all! Mentorship has value no matter how it’s fostered. The key element is for your Kitchener company to tear down any barriers to mentorships. Instead of building walls between workers, start building bridges. You’ll be setting the stage to increase productivity and innovation, as well as decrease turnover.
