Mentoring Matters: Developing Talent With Formal Mentoring Programs
In Mentoring Matters: Developing Talent With Formal Mentoring Programs—the latest research report by the Association for Talent Development (ATD)—results show that formal mentoring programs aren’t very common. In fact, only 29 percent of participating organizations had a formal mentoring program in place, although nearly 6 in 10 participants indicated that their formal mentoring programs were effective at helping to meet learning goals to a high or very high extent.
Mentoring Matters examines the program purpose and how organizations select participants for inclusion in the mentoring program. It also features the top benefits for mentors, mentees, and organizations; the training participants receive; and the effectiveness of mentoring programs at achieving business and learning goals. Additionally, the report includes insights from key subject matter experts, and case studies that illustrate mentoring programs implemented at global organizations and the results they’ve achieved.
