May 26, 2020Maintaining Momentum in Your Workplace Mentoring Program
The busyness of returning to the office after pandemic isolation risks workplace mentoring programs being put on the backburner. There will be so much to do and to catch up on. Mentoring programs are very likely to be a low priority. Just as most of us have become adjusted to working from home, restrictions put in place by COVID-19 concerns are being loosened. We now find ourselves heading back into our workplaces, albeit with some changes. Readjusting to life in the office will take some time. We’ll all be fairly busy when we return to work, similar to when we come back after a holiday. During this time, it can be easy to put mentoring low on your list of priorities, but it is important not to let this happen. To do so would be a step back for organizations that have built up a successful mentoring program. In fact, it might be you’ll have to start from scratch when you decide to pick up mentoring as an employee engagement tool again.
