Mentoring is all about learning. The value and purpose of a mentoring program for new employees is to provide a transition into the organization and increase employee retention. Employees who have mentors are more likely to have greater job satisfaction. Mentoring programs can help eliminate obstacles and difficulties new employees might encounter. Mentoring is also a critical component to workplace diversity and the retention and success of all staff.
Moraine Valley pairs all new full-time and part-time benefit eligible staff members with a mentor. This valuable relationship helps to accelerate the new staff member’s understanding of the college and connect employees with one another across the entire campus.
