Session: Shaping the Future: Mentoring and Training Young Talents
Finding and keeping new employees nowadays is not an easy job. Things have gone quite differently during the last years. As we like to joke: candidates are no more applying for jobs, today the companies are fighting for new recruits.
What can make your enterprise stand out during these interesting times? How can you grow your ranks? Where can you find talents you can rely on in the long term? The short answer is: grow your own specialists.
In this session I am going to share with you my experience as a mentor while conducting workshops, courses and internship programs for students in our academy as well as giving you some valuable tips, techniques and advice on how to break the stereotype and be a successful mentor. I will show you how we have strengthened our company values by respecting our trainees’ diverse background, interests and personal goals. Join me and learn more about our vision, mission and principles as well as our training programs. I am looking forward to e-meeting you!
