Ensuring a successful hire
From sifting through resumes to interviewing candidates, the hiring process can be long and arduous. Now that you have found the right person for the job, you still have one more task to complete before congratulating yourself on a job well done. Help ensure your new employee’s future success by pairing them with a mentor.
Establishing a mentoring program for new employees can pay off big for your shop. Not only does the new employee benefit from the relationship but your shop and the mentor also profit from the experience. Read on to learn how mentoring can be a catalyst for success.
What is a mentor?
A mentor is a person who provides guidance, advice and knowledge to a co-worker with less experience. It can be helpful for the mentor to be in the same job or to have previously held the position that the new employee is starting. That way, the mentor will understand the job demands that the new employee is facing and can better counsel them.
