Staff Mentoring

What is the Staff Mentoring Pilot?

The Staff Mentoring initiative launched in April 2016, as a pilot project led by the My Workplace team. It will connect mentors and mentees for at least a year, with the goal of:

  • Enrich new-employee experience/initiation
  • Improve employee engagement and retention
  • Foster community connections
  • Encourage employee learning and growth

If the pilot is successful, and if McGill employees find this usesful, we’ll evaluate the possibility of opening it to all staff on a more permanent basis.

Who can get a mentor?

  • All employees who have been at McGill for 6-24 months
  • Get a mentor

Guidelines for mentors and mentees

We suggest that at their first meeting, mentees and mentors review and agree to these guidelines.

We'll occasionally check in with mentors and mentees -- both to learn as much as possible throughout this pilot phase, and also to help ensure that this experience is useful for everyone.
