    TOPIC: Positive ROI: Effective Mentor Program Design for Workforce Development

    This workshop will explore both formal and informal mentoring. Mentoring is one of the best ways to strengthen skills or to take a leadership role in developing future leaders or followers. Mentoring can also be very cost effective for organizations. Through interactive group activities and the sharing of best practices, this program will provide examples of mentoring successes with a strong return on investment. Examples of New England and national companies we have partnered with on designing and evaluating a mentor process will also be shared.  

    This topic and workshop is relevant to HR professionals because retaining and developing top talent is the responsibility of all leaders in organizations. Mentoring is a cost effective way to strengthen organizations and companies that often provides a strong ROI.  Learning Objectives on this program include: 1.To learn the components necessary to support and design both formal and informal mentor programs that are successful. 2.To learn how mentoring can provide a strong return on investment for businesses and organizations. 3.To learn how to find a mentor that is appropriate for their development.
