Building Your Talent Pools Though Skill Based Mentoring
Managing the multi-generational workforce has never been more important and more challenging.
Imagine creating a mentoring program based on your workers’ skills and not based on their function or seniority in the organization. For example, one employee might want to learn how to “tweet,” while another employee may want to learn how to coach. Whoever possesses that skill within the organization, on any level, can share that information with their co-workers. This new and different approach gives any employee from any generation a way to transfer or receive a new skill and encourages all generations to learn together.
Our May speaker, will share an innovative skill-based approach to knowledge sharing that recognizes the value each employee brings and supports excitement around learning and innovation.
You will learn how this approach to assessing who your employees are and aligning employee and organizational needs will help you in selecting new employees, growing your talent, and retaining the right people.
There are no easy answers or formulas in today's workplace, however, we know that the only sustainable advantage we have as humans in this Talent Age is our ability to learn and apply what we have learned while we learn some more.
