The State of Mentorship:

Insights from Hundreds of HR Professionals

We surveyed hundreds of HR professionals to understand the role of coaching and mentoring in the workplace. The findings are pertinent for all HR, L&D, or DE&I experts looking to implement world-class learning and development programs.

What will you learn?

The State of Coaching and Mentoring Survey collected responses from HR professionals in virtually every industry vertical. Respondents are located all over the world, but most of them reside in North America, especially the United States. The participants represent a broad cross section of employers by number of employees, ranging from small businesses with fewer than 50 employees to enterprises with 20,000+ employees. In this study, you'll learn:

  • HR professionals’ assessments of the importance of coaching and mentoring, both now and in the near future
  • How top companies are implementing coaching and mentoring programs
  • Core competencies of successful mentors and coaches
  • How well organizations instill a coaching culture
  • The use of technology to fuel coaching and mentoring effectiveness
  • Key differences between organizations that excel at coaching and mentoring and those that do not

The results are surprising, enlightening, actionable and worth digging into.
