MENTORING CIRCLES PROGRAM FOR EARLY CAREER EMPLOYEES (MCP1)
WFD has created Peer Mentoring Circles Programs 1 & 2 to support talent management objectives in today’s fast-paced and highly competitive talent marketplace. With a skill-building curriculum, relationship-building activities, handbooks and session guides, these programs offer a cost-effective and sustainable mentoring/professional development solution that is “high touch/low administration.”
Our clients are utilizing these programs to provide employees with the skills, networking, and career development support necessary to enhance and build the talent pipeline. In many cases our clients have implemented these programs as part of their Diversity & Inclusion efforts.
The Mentoring Circles Program for Early Career Employees (MCP1) is a self-contained and sustainable peer mentoring program where participants meet for two hours at four to six week intervals for about one year for networking, skill-building, and career support. Groups should be no larger than eight to twelve participants. Additionally, the program includes a self-directed career component in which participants develop a personal career plan and identify a unique team of advisors to support them.
The goals of the program are to:
The program includes a scripted guide for each session and includes a 60-minute professional development component; forty minutes dedicated to peer coaching on business issues; and 20 minutes on networking, planning, and session feedback. Assignments include reading and exercises designed to prepare each individual to fully engage in each session.
