How to be a mentor.
Benefits for Employers
Mentoring is more than the transfer of advice, knowledge and insight. It is a reciprocal relationship. Aside from gaining personal satisfaction from sharing your skills and experience with a willing learner, mentoring also has some very tangible benefits for mentors including:
- Connecting with the Brownsville community
- Helping raise awareness of specific careers in your industry, helping secure your future workforce
- Motivating students to decide to pursue a career in your sector and even apply for a job within your company
- Gaining exposure to fresh perspectives, ideas and approaches
- Honing your own personal leadership and coaching style
- Sharing desired company behaviors and attitudes
- Engaging, retaining and developing performers
- Widening your contacts
- Recruiting talent at an early stage
