Since 2014 I’ve been working with Worldline on designing, implementing and supporting two mentoring programs (traditional and reverse). They clearly support their growth and transformation strategies which need a good attraction, development, and retention of talents as well as a capacity to rely on and learn fast from each other. “Growing within the company” is key to avoid unstable workforce which could hinder the fast growth path they’re walking.
When companies grow by acquisition, the company culture and what keeps it coherent might be lost along the way. Mentoring is one practice that can help people continue growing within the company more smoothly as it is expanding and becoming more complex.
