Mentor/Protégé Program

Program Overview

The Peridot Solutions Mentor/Protégé Program is designed to support a formal mentoring partnership where “Mentors” can be of great help to the “Protégés” in their pursuit of career success by developing their self-competence and self‑confidence.

For this mentoring opportunity, every effort will be made to foster this communication relationship between a senior organizational member (the “Mentor”) and a more junior organizational member (the “Protégé”) to excel their core skills and competencies, in response to the changing customer needs. The program will carefully match the Mentors with the Protégés along factors that mirror the mentoring relationships.

Purpose

The Peridot Solutions Mentor-Protégé program’s purpose is to transfer the expertise of its most knowledgeable employees to others, facilitate knowledge exchange, workforce planning, succession management, or knowledge management initiatives.

It serves to help them find the right career path and navigate workplace challenges. By learning from experienced peers, they can make more informed decisions about their careers and professional development, and overcome any conflicts that might arise.
