An action by which a person with more experience helps and advises others, with less experience, to develop required skills or thoughts that add value to their professional and private lives.
By receiving support from the most experienced person, the mentee, thanks to the advice and supervision they receive, can perform their duties with greater confidence and security, shortening their learning curve, thus improving productivity, which in the future will give them the possibility to continue growing within the company. Through mentoring, this new collaborator will develop a greater sense of belonging, appropriating the vision and values of the company, in addition to acquiring the necessary skills for the specific position.
The mentor on their behalf also gains benefits through teaching, helping to improve their leadership skills and continuing the development of their professional skills.
To implement a mentoring program successfully, these steps are essential:
  • Select the right mentor. A person with social and leadership skills, with the facility to transmit their knowledge and with experience in the position and company.
  • Set goals. You have to detect the needs of the mentee and work on them, depending on the job, this will require a number of hours and we will have to focus on developing specific skills for the position.
  • Monitoring of the process. Through follow-up reports we can monitor whether there is good communication between the mentor and mentee, correcting any problem that arises in the process.
