What is employee mentoring?

Employee mentoring is a process where experienced employees provide guidance and support to less experienced colleagues, fostering a culture of learning and development. Mentoring can be carried out 1-to-1 or in a group scenario; at Indigo, we believe the best approach is to offer both private and public forms of mentoring, enabling everyone to access advice and support whilst communicating in a way that suits their individual preferences.

How does workplace mentoring work?

Workplace mentoring involves pairing employees in a mentor-mentee relationship. The mentor (often a more experienced colleague who has worked at the organisation for some time) shares their knowledge and experience, helping the mentee to grow professionally. This benefits the mentee by helping them to more quickly settle in to a new working environment. However, it also benefits the mentor by enabling them to develop and demonstrate leadership skills which may benefit their own career progression.

What is the role of a workplace mentor?

A workplace mentor guides and supports their mentee, sharing their knowledge and experience to help the mentee achieve their professional goals. Depending on how each individual organisation wants to adopt their mentoring scheme, a mentor’s role could be anything from a sign-poster to a long term coach.

What is the benefit of mentorship in the workplace?

Mentorship in the workplace boosts employee engagement, retention, and productivity. It fosters a culture of continuous learning and development. For organisations, building a cohesive workforce, where individuals help one another as a team, makes their organisation a more attractive place to work, thereby helping them stand out from the competition when attracting top talent.

Mentoring in the workplace improves employee retention by fostering a supportive and engaging work environment. It helps employees feel valued and invested in the company. Keeping your team happy means they are less likely to leave, and more likely to work harder for you – effectively, boosting overall productivity whilst also lowering attrition rates.

What is the impact of mentorship on employee wellbeing?

Mentorship at work can significantly improve employee wellbeing by creating a supportive work environment where employees feel valued and heard. At Indigo, we believe that the psychological safety of their employees should be a top priority for each and every organisation, HR manager and team leader. In this context, psychological safety can be defined as feeling comfortable to ask for help without fear of retribution: a robust mentoring program creates a culture where doing so is not only encourage and supported, but the norm.
