Some organizations have mentoring programs designed to promote employee development.

Mentoring can be formal or informal. In formal mentoring programs, there are usually program goals, schedules, training (for mentors and mentees), and evaluation.

New-Hire Mentoring For example, in some programs, newcomers to the organization (mentees) are paired with more experienced people (mentors) in order to obtain information, good examples, and advice as they advance.

High-Potential Mentoring In other cases, mentoring is used to groom up-and-coming employees deemed to have the potential to move up into leadership roles. Here the employee (protege) is paired with a senior level leader (or leaders) for a series of career-coaching interactions.
