The Development Company Archi assigns a high priority to employee development and job satisfaction. The company has launched a workplace Mentorship Program to serve the cause. The Mentoring Program intends to transfer the existing knowledge to newer and less experienced employees as well as help mentors increase their sense of self-worth at work.
According to Ana Qurasbediani, Chief HR Officer, The Mentoring Program helps new employees adapt to the workplace culture more quickly.
“Being equally beneficial to the company, mentors, and mentees, successful international companies make sure to carry out a mentorship program. The employees who are involved in the program get familiarized with the workplace routines and expectations. As a result, new hires are believed to enhance their productivity and problem-solving skills at work. Overall, mentors help the mentees feel more a part of the company, “- points out Ana.
Archi is focused on attracting qualified employees as well as improving staff retention. Mentors are selected according to the criteria set by Archi.
“We have selected 10 mentors due to the criteria such as loyalty, competence, and job performance. Besides, our mentors are distinguished by their personal qualities, communication skills, and a high sense of responsibility,” – says Ana.
Launching the Mentoring Program aims at building an employee-oriented culture in the workplace. The major benefit of the program is learning opportunities for both mentors and mentees.
“Apart from aiding in adaptation and skill development, the Program provides encouragement for new employees. It appreciates employee contribution to the company,”- adds Anna.
The Mentorship Program together with other initiatives by the company serves to nurture an employee-oriented culture at Archi.
