Addressing Problem Areas in Your Organisation’s Culture

People and Culture, or P&C, leaders are usually time-poor; after all, there’s only so much they can do—they’re only one person! 

But one thing they should do is address those problem areas in your organisation’s culture before they blow up and become massive issues.

Thankfully, addressing such issues doesn’t necessarily have to be 1. difficult, 2. expensive, or 3. scary. In fact, the answer might be simple and easy to implement: a mentoring program!

How a Mentoring Program Can Help

So, how exactly can an initiative like a mentoring program target your company’s issues before they blow up?

Address Problem Areas Before They Become Systemic Issues

A mentoring program can be the beginning of directly addressing certain issues your company is facing, whether that be a lack of opportunity for minorities, a lack of flexibility for parents of young children, a lack of women in leadership positions, etc.

Create a Network of Support

A mentoring program can create a network of support for your participants. This will help ensure that no one feels like they have to go it alone and/or just figure it out themselves. On the contrary: they’ll have a pool of respected, experienced peers willing to lend a helping hand when the going gets tough.

Connect to the Wider Organisation

If you’re connecting employee resource groups (also known as ERGs or affinity groups) to the wider organisation, it helps create empathy for the different lived experiences of group members. And with understanding can come support—and not just moral support, but actual support for changes that need to be made at a higher level at the organisation.

Leave a Lasting Legacy

Introducing a new initiative like a mentoring program is an actionable step you can take if you wish to leave a lasting legacy on your company.
