What Are Peer Mentoring Programs?

Peer mentoring programs are an opportunity for employees to learn new skills, explore new areas, and learn from experienced coworkers. Peer mentoring can be incredibly beneficial to onboarding employees and experienced workers looking to sharpen new skills, pursue a management position, or transition to a new area in the organization. Peer mentoring programs make learning personalized, supportive, and help companies invest in long term employee success.

Establishing An Effective Program

When peer mentoring programs are effective, they strengthen your company and build community, but unfortunately, they typically end up discouraging and disappointing. Many companies struggle to establish a reliable communication system with mentors and peers, making it difficult to communicate, share, and learn together. And connection problems only increase when mentors and peers don’t work in the same area or have the same schedule. Unreliable communication also makes it difficult for companies to evaluate interest levels and success from their peer mentor programs.

Mentoring That Makes A Difference

In MangoApps, our main focus is on helping customers stay connected, so successful peer mentoring is a natural fit. With a designated peer mentoring group in MangoApps, it’s easy for anyone in the organization to be quickly matched to a mentor that meets their needs. A connected, company-wide group also makes it easy to gauge interest, see program success, and send out general information like program requirements or application dates and deadlines.
A centralized workspace also makes it easier for mentors and peers to keep in contact whatever way works for them. Instant messaging, group messages, direct messages, video conferences, screen shares, and all kinds of other communication are all possible in MangoApps. And with easy file and document sharing capabilities, it’s a snap to share resources, ask questions, and create a truly valuable mentoring experience.
