Overview

Over the past few years the application of mentoring in business has risen steeply and more organizations than ever are seeking to utilize its power. 'Implementing Mentoring Schemes' constitutes the most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of the design, implementation, evaluation and revitalization of mentoring schemes.

Although it can be used as a practical "how-to" guide on implementing mentoring schemes, it is ultimately a book that promotes best practice, combining academic research and case studies with many years of practical experience to produce expert advice. It enables readers to fully understand mentoring and to create state-of-the-art programs. In addition, it establishes a tenable case for mentoring that will greatly assist readers in promoting programs within their organization.

Audience: HR Professionals; Mentoring and Coaching Practitioners; Middle to Senior Managers; Government Agencies.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'...highly structured book, written primarily for those responsible for designing and implementing a mentoring scheme ... gets to the core of why mentoring is a worthwhile activity.'
Claire Marchbank - People Management, March 2002

'The application of mentoring schemes has sharply increased over the past decade, primarily because organisations recognise the benefits they provide to both the individual and organisation. What has been lacking is both the hands-on guidance and the evidence of best practice that this book provides.........deserves a place on all professional HRM and trainers' book shelves
