Since January is National Mentoring Month, Office Depot wanted to take a minute to highlight why mentorship is important in the workplace. A study by Sun Microsystems states that both mentors and mentees benefit from a mentorship program.
We tapped our talented associates to highlight their mentor and mentee experiences.
“The mentor/mentee relationship provides a platform for open and honest communication in a confidential environment. My mentor’s guidance continues to be invaluable to me as I grow my skills as a leader at Office Depot.”
–Jonas S., Store Operations
“Watching my mentee grow into a greater leader is one of my proudest accomplishments.”
–Christine B., E-Commerce
"My mentee was recently promoted...it's great to see him grow and succeed and continue to add tremendous value to our company. What a fantastic program!"
–Kevin A., Loss Prevention
“My mentor is fantastic. It was reassuring to hear and gain insights from an individual outside of my direct organization. We tend to be so focused on our day-to-day activities that we lose sight of the challenges and opportunities. My mentor’s frankness and honest feedback challenged my thoughts and perceptions, which has helped me clarify my professional objectives in becoming a more effective leader.”
–Barry G., IT
“My mentor has not only inspired me to be the best possible, but also provided perspective, encouragement, and a true friend for life.”
–Leiah L., Marketing
