Lifelong learning is important for leaders! One of the pillars of SHRM is "Develop the Professional”. At Richmond SHRM, we take this concept very seriously. A helpful 1:1 Mentorship Program matches those new to the profession with experienced HR leaders to provide career advice and share HR/business knowledge assuring personal and professional development for both parties.

The Mentorship Program Committee will meet annually in Q3 to assess successes of current year program and to make adjustments to the existing program/ create a plan for the following year. Committee members will routinely assess appropriate protocols for participation in the program. They will recruit and match mentors to meet the needs of the mentees. They will ensure that a "mentor/ mentee agreement” outlining roles/responsibilities and expectations or plan objectives is in place for participants. They will publicize the benefits of program using social media and website promotion.

Committee members will contact mentors and mentees on a regular basis to ensure that the "match” is effective and established goals contained in the "mentor/mentee” agreement are being met. You will coach mentors/mentees with suggested improvements when necessary. The Committee will analyze input to determine best practices for the program.

Committee members will also participate in any required follow up such as a Committee debrief.
