COMPASS Mentoring Program
Mentoring has become a sought-after process which enhances an individual’s professional development. Previous research studies have shown that those who are mentored earn higher salaries, receive more promotions, and have greater career and job satisfaction than those who are not mentored. Those who serve as mentors also reap positive outcomes of learning and professional growth (Searby, pers. comm. 2015). The COMPASS Mentoring Program involves a mentor and mentee application and selection process, attendance at required COMPASS classes, orientation and training for mentors/mentees, matching mentors/mentees, and ongoing support, supervision and monitoring of mentor/mentee relationships.
