creating a strategic mentoring programme

The organisation

Large international engineering organisation who wanted to create structure and rigour to their mentoring process. The company wanted to properly evaluate mentoring delivery and outcomes and was aimed at graduates, talent and new starters.

The challenge

Most organisations have some form of mentoring. Often, this can be informal and success will depend on the ability of the mentor and the relationship chemistry. This project was to bring structure and rigour to this informal process so the organisation could truly test its impact on their talent pipeline. The client wanted a simple and streamlined way of improving what was already happening by giving the skills and the process to the mentors.

The outcome

The project provides:

  • A simple mentoring process with success for the mentee as its focus 
  • Mentoring process from choosing partnerships to measuring success
  • Training programme for all mentors including skills and process education
  • Created by our Head of Coaching, Kirsty Brooks, who has a Masters in Coaching; this learning has enabled our client the confidence in the process and training interventions implemented.
