The DeMaria Mentoring Program matches new employees with experienced, trusted, and knowledgeable mentors who provide personal support, and coaching. The program has several objectives, including preparing employees for greater personal success, productivity and achievement and improving communication across the organization at different levels and in different departments.
Mentoring is an essential leadership skill. In addition to managing and motivating people, it’s also important that a mentor can help others learn, grow and become more effective in their jobs. Mentors foster a professional and friendship-based relationship, offering non-judgmental, confidential support as a positive role model. A mentor serves as a “sounding board” for the new employee (mentee) to assist with questions, concerns, policies, procedures and job responsibilities.
