Learn the benefits of mentor/mentee relationships from the recent grads of Gannett Fleming’s Employee Resource Group (ERG)-led mentorship program.
Have you ever been at a career crossroads and needed a fresh perspective? Sought professional advice on how to have a difficult conversation with a colleague? Searched for a supportive professional community? Mentorship may be the answer.
Studies show that employees with mentors are more likely to be satisfied with their jobs, feel their work is valued, and believe they are fairly compensated. But how do you start on your mentorship journey? We spoke with the founders and participants of Gannett Fleming’s Connected Relationships Mentoring Program, sponsored by the Connected Women at Gannett Fleming™ ERG, to explore mentorship and kick off National Mentoring Day.
Program Co-Founder and Chief Communications Officer Judy Hricak, CPSM, CiPP, shared, “When I met Catalina Echeverri, PMP, my Connected Relationships co-founder, I learned first-hand about the significant desire for more mentoring at Gannett Fleming. We looked across the organization and saw a tremendous opportunity to design a program that would fit the needs of Gannett Fleming and forge relationships across corporate business groups.”
