Mentoring as an effective business strategy

Mentoring is more than personal professional development. The implementation of a structured mentoring program is an effective business strategy that can transform your company culture, improve your Employee Value Proposition, and positively impact your financial bottom line.

 

APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN for 2022 MENTORING PROGRAM

Resource Industry Network and Mackay Regional Council have again partnered to deliver the 2022 Mackay Mentoring Network program. The Mackay Mentoring Network program aims to strengthen leadership capability by supporting current and aspiring managers and leaders of regional industries and local government to build a network of inspired leadership professionals.

It allows mentees to explore their careers and skills and provides opportunities for them to connect with like-minded people, through participation in a mutually beneficial developmental relationship.

The Mackay Mentoring Network is a formally structured 8-month mentoring program with regular catch ups with a mentor for approximately an hour each session. 

To be eligible as a mentee in this program, you must be an employee of a RIN member business. However mentors are sought from both within and outside of this group. The cost to participating mentees is $350pp. There is no cost associated with being a mentor.
