Happy National Mentoring Month

January 13th, 2022

Helping companies build and boost mentoring initiatives. We’ve got your back.

DID YOU KNOW Mentoring relationships offer an incredible reciprocal benefit not only to your employees but to your bottom line. They report feeling a greater connection to their companies, and 79% of our younger generations want their managers to be mentors. For every dollar Sodexo invested in a diversity mentoring initiative, they saw a $19 ROI. At Pershing, a BNY Mellon company, the retention of millennial employees engaged in a mentor-up (or reverse mentoring initiative) was 96%. Those are just a few examples (and we have a full white paper we can share) on how mentoring impacts businesses and employees.

The power of TWO! and very easy to scale with some solid engineering and good management.

International boutique Change Management Firm, Change 4 Growth understands the challenges facing today’s workers and companies, and working with clients we have established a 4-Step ‘Mentoring-in-a-Box approach that we’d love to share with you and help you strategically assess how to best build mentoring in 2022.

“We need to start with our top-line objectives for the mentoring initiative. What problem are we solving for, and then we can custom create a blueprint strategy and 8 – 12 month roll-out plan that we manage, taking 90% of the work off your plate,” says Julie Kantor, VP of Change 4 Growth. “People are very isolated and having trouble connecting well on Zoom/ TEAMS… we can do so much more to establish a greater human connection + shared learning in this hybrid work environment.”
