The Corporate Mentorship Program offers an opportunity for employees and managers to build 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.
Mentorship is based on a trust relationship in which the mentor invests time and effort to enhance the mentee's growth by sharing knowledge, experience, and perspectives. It also provides the opportunity for mentors to enhance their own leadership skills and contribute to the development of the next generation of leaders.

The mandatory questionnaire provides all the required information to determine your eligibility and compatibility for being matched. The more detail that is provided on the questionnaire, the better your chances for finding the best match. The Profile Questionnaire should take you approximately 15 minutes to complete. Please note that any question not marked with an asterisk is not mandatory for completion.
If you are interested in requesting a partnership with an employee from a diversity group, who is a youth (e.g., 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 1st, the matching process will begin 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, the Mentorship Handbook and Question and Answer document.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. If both parties agree to being matched, you will be required to email email@example.com 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.
