Concretely, the mentor becomes the contact person for the new employee, so that the new employee will know who to turn to if he or she encounters a problem or has questions. The mentor will also be able to talk to the new employee about the company’s story and organizational chart, introduce him or her to the team and help him or her integrate into it, show him or her around the office, and so on.
This is where your creativity comes in! Why not give special assignments to your mentors? For example, write a personalized welcome note to their mentee, or introduce them to their favorite restaurant during their first month on the job. The possibilities are endless!This type of program encourages communication, helps new employees build relationships, and is always highly appreciated by employees, both mentors and mentees. Indeed, mentoring is a good way to involve employees in the life of the company and, at the same time, strengthen your employer brand.
