Mentoring Schemes Universally Accepted Say CBSbutler

Mentoring Schemes Universally Accepted Say CBSbutler

Over three quarters (79%) of UK companies have an internal mentoring scheme in place. That’s according to an online survey of senior managers conducted by technical and engineering recruiter CBSbutler through its monthly Bulletpoint management newsletter.

16% said that they did not offer mentoring to their employees but that they intended to do so in the future. Interestingly, only 5% of respondents said they encouraged their staff to find external mentors, indicating strongly that internal programmes are more desirable to organisations.

David Leyshon, Managing Director of CBSbutler said: “The results go to show that, regardless of how it’s implemented, mentoring schemes are universally accepted as beneficial. The fact that the majority of respondents had some sort of scheme in place already is indicative of the importance of mentoring as a whole in UK business.”

However, Leyshon believes that the best mentoring schemes are internal. “At CBSButler, we encourage our staff to sign up to our internal mentoring scheme. It’s a great opportunity for them to receive hands-on training and guidance from someone with the relevant experience within the business. This improves their career prospects, both within the company and as a whole. With external schemes, mentees are less likely to benefit from the experience of somebody who knows the nuances of their business and are therefore receiving still valuable, but less relevant and regular guidance.”
