Introduction

One of the top 5 reasons why employees leave the organization is lack of career advancement and opportunities. They have a strong desire to grow at a company, yet, they found themselves stagnating at their current job. Some want a new challenge. Others found a better career opportunity elsewhere.

When employees find fulfilment and are happy at work, the energy and creativity they possess is unlimited. Career development plays a significant part of today’s work culture; it is the priority for both employers and employees. Organizations worldwide are investing in employee development opportunities like mentorship programs. In fact, 70% of the Fortune 500 companies have a structured workplace mentoring program in place.

Mentoring in the workplace is a great way to make your employees ready to face any challenge that comes their way. Most importantly, it sets your organization up for success in this ever-changing business world. It is for career planning, succession planning and retention.

This one-day workshop will equip you with an effective mentoring toolkit and unique framework to apply in your workplace to support career transition and development for your employees.
