Mentoring is the opportunity to work confidentially with an experienced role model (mentor) who is able to listen, provide guidance and help build self confidence for an employee (mentee) in their career. For employers the benefits may include increased satisfaction in the workplace, a positive work environment, increased confidence, creativity and productivity of staff in undertaking the tasks required as well as promoting and maintaining quality staff.
