    Join us for an exciting program on Mentoring: A Tool for Attracting and Retaining Staff, with guest speaker Lou Carloni, President and Founder of SMBC Incorporated.  


    This program has been approved for 1.5 HRCI General Recertification credits.

    In business, the only real asset companies have is their people.  It is the responsibility of Human Resource professionals to ensure that staff is receiving mentoring opportunities.  No amount of money will take the place of long-term interest in their careers and their lives, and mentoring is key in demonstrating that interest. 

    Engaging in mentoring will develop the executives and managers to be more effective, will develop staff to be more valuable, and will develop organizations into sought-after employers.

    This program will help Human Resources professionals:

    • design and develop mentoring programs and opportunities,
    • motivate all staff members to be involved with mentoring,
    • gain support and commitment from executives,
    • set goals for both mentors and mentees, and
    • support the program through a variety of means including education and training.
