Turning Pockets of Mentoring, into a Culture of Mentoring
EDF’s mentoring journey started way before their first conversation with Mentorloop. Within the organisation, pockets of mentoring already existed – a sign of a wider culture of mentoring and an indication of demand. They found, however, that the existing mentoring happening at EDF did not extend beyond the same departments and business units. There was also a lack of women participating in them.
They didn’t want to dissolve these existing mentoring relationships, but as they were, it was resource-heavy to support them manually and when left alone they had the tendency to fizzle out. Instead, they wanted to learn how to support these relationships and ensure they could sustainably offer this opportunity to more employees.
