- Description: Workplace mentoring is a strategy used to increase the retention and job performance of new employees. While mentoring may be valuable for all new employees, it may be particularly beneficial for individuals with disabilities who may have difficulties with social skills, interpreting social cues, and understanding workplace rules, particularly those that are unspoken. A mentor who can build a good relationship with the new employee can guide them through the social aspects of the workplace. Likewise, one who is supportive and encouraging can help an employee process new information, manage stress, gain confidence, and persist through challenges. Join us as we discuss mentoring and the value it brings to the workplace not only to the employees being mentored, but also to those providing the mentoring.
