Mentoring at Roche

Roche Pharma Australia believes that all employees have the potential to grow and develop. Regardless of who you are and what you do, we believe you can continuously develop your skills and capabilities. Mentoring is the creation of a trust-based relationship in which an experienced person (mentor) helps someone with less experience (mentee) to reach their goals and develop both personally and professionally by providing advice, giving support, and sharing valuable experience.

It is usually provided by experienced managers or specialists in the organisation who are not the direct line manager(s) of the mentee. For mentees – this is an opportunity to learn, develop, and shape your own career through the real-world experience of a helpful mentor. For mentors – this is an opportunity to give back, and develop your leadership skills.

If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.
– Isaac Newton

Mentoring at Roche is a self-directed program made available to all full and part time employees in the Australian Roche Pharma affiliate and compliments a wide range of resources and opportunities  already available.

Mentoring principles

You own it!

Mentees are responsible for:

  • Driving the relationship and their own development
  • Establishing clear objectives before contacting a mentor
  • Being prepared for meetings with a clear agenda

Both Mentees and Mentors are responsible for:

  • Identifying and connecting with a mentor or a mentee on the portal i.e. self matching
  • Coordination of meetings
  • Agreeing on the time frame of arrangement, frequency, confidentiality boundaries
  • Improving their own mentor/mentee capabilities by using the Resource Hub materials provided in the portal
  • Following through on commitments
  • Flagging with the program coordinator if they require assistance with their mentoring relationship
  • It is encouraged that Managers are informed of the arrangement in a Check-in but it is not mandatory


Can I invite people outside of Roche Australia?

Yes. They will need to Register and complete the sign-up form through the Mentorloop portal. Please send them the following link:

How does matching work?

This is a self-serve program, the information you provide in the sign-up form will be added to a profile. Once you have been granted access to Mentorloop’s portal you can reach out and request a connection with other individuals who have signed up.

I want to take a pause… how do I temporarily prevent myself receiving requests from My Match?

If you’d like to hide your profile from My Match, please click Your Account in the bottom left, then toggle your availability to Hidden. If you set yourself to hidden, any pending requests can still be accepted or declined by the respondent.
