The Corporate Mentorship Program provides an opportunity for employees and managers to create relationships and focus on career and professional development.
Mentoring in the workplace provides a number of key benefits to the employees involved, as well as the organization as a whole. It involves a trust relationship in which the mentor invests time and effort to enhance the mentee's growth by sharing knowledge, experience and perspectives.
Mentoring also provides the opportunity for mentors to enhance their own leadership skills and contribute to the development of the next generation of leaders.
You can learn more about the corporate mentorship program below:
Employees at all levels of Government are invited to participate in the Corporate Mentorship Program as mentees.
out-of-scope employees and in-scope employees level 10 and above are welcome to
become mentors, with approval from immediate supervisors.
To apply, discuss the Mentorship Program Expectations with your immediate supervisor, receive approval on the Mentorship Approval Form and begin filling out your Mentorship Action Plan. Please note that all completed approval forms must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject 'Corporate Mentorship Approval' along with your full name (i.e., Corporate Mentorship Approval - Jane Smith). Your Mentorship Action Plan can be completed privately and/or shared with your mentor as a first topic of conversation once you have been matched.
Registration for the 2021/22 Corporate Mentorship Program will open on June 29th, 2021. The deadline to register is August 13th, 2021. The program launch event will take place on October 6th, 2021. Only those mentors/mentees who are matched in the 2021/22 program should register for the launch event. More details around whether the launch event will be held in person or virtually will be communicated close to the end of summer. To register for the launch event in the Learn App on PSC Client, click here.
As the Government of Saskatchewan no longer has access to LEARN or the matching website, a new process for completing your profile will be introduced for the 2021/22 program.
To register for the Mentorship Program, you will create a profile by completing a Profile Assessment Questionnaire
. By completing the mandatory questionnaire, you will provide all of the required information to determine your eligibility and compatibility for being matched. The Profile Assessment Questionnaire
should take you approximately 15 minutes to complete. Please note that any question not marked with an asterisk is not mandatory for completion. When completing the questionnaire, please ensure both your full name and work email address are clearly identified in the appropriate fields. Failure to do so will result in an incomplete profile and inability to match you into a partnership.
you are interested in requesting a partnership with an employee from a
diversity group, who is a youth (i.e., under 30), or with any other
considerations, please ensure these questions on the questionnaire are answered
with as much detail as possible.
Once registration closes on August 13th, the matching process will commence and all mentees/mentors who are being recommended for a match will be emailed individually.
While the Mentorship Program is beneficial for both the mentor and mentee, the program is primarily driven by the mentee and is based on their goals and objectives.
Expectations for each role are explained in the Mentorship Program Expectations
and should be reviewed before a Mentorship Approval Form
is submitted.Throughout the eight-month relationship, mentors and mentees require a minimum commitment of two hours per month. It is recommended that the mentor and mentee commit to a monthly session (face-to-face, phone call, video conference, etc.) and commit to preparing in advance for the mentoring session.
If there is someone specific you are interested in mentoring or being mentored by, you are encouraged to either reach out directly to your potential partner or the Program Coordinator at email@example.com. If both parties agree to being matched, you will be required to email firstname.lastname@example.org with both the mentee's and mentor's acknowledgement.
The program also allows engineer-specific matches for engineers working towards their Professional Engineer designation from the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan. If you are a part of this designation, please ensure these details are indicated on your profile questionnaire.
