Providing employees with all levels of coaching and mentoring from internal and external experts can provide high-quality, meaningful experiences. It drives retention. Why? It’s an incentive and benefit that helps individuals prepare for their futures, building ties to their employers at the same time. New roles and responsibilities emerge every day, and technology and innovative solutions threaten traditional models.
Coaches and mentors help employees and leaders both navigate changes, gain new insights, and work through threats and opportunities. All are advantages to the employees – a reason to stay with an organization. At the same time, the employer wins, retaining leaders and high potential employees who understand this investment in them. They experience opportunities to help them succeed today and prepare for the next steps in their jobs or careers.
