Application for Mentoring a New Employee
The Service Excellence Committee of Allegheny College has coordinated a Mentor Program to assist in making the transition into the Allegheny community for new employees. New employees interested in this program will be assigned a mentor from a voluntary pool of experienced employees. Mentors will be a colleague outside of the new employee’s department and building, with the same employee status of exempt or non-exempt and ideally with similar interests.
Criteria to Become a Mentor:
1: Full-time staff with at least five years employment are eligible to apply.
2: Mentors are to possess a positive and friendly personality and be able to assist new employees in a helpful and encouraging manner.
3: Mentor candidates will identify themselves as commendable or exemplary employees of the college as documented on the annual Performance Review.
4: Participation by the mentor is voluntary.
Responsibilities of Mentors:
1: Introduce yourself and the Mentor Program to your assigned new employee approximately three weeks after their date of hire.
2: Check in on the new employee at least once a month to see if you can be of any assistance for the first year of the new employee’s employment.
3: Introduce the new employee to employees they work with often but have not had the opportunity to personally meet.
4: Remind the new employee of upcoming staff development and social events and encourage him/her to attend with you or others.
5: Mentors are to guide new employees to the appropriate source for answers to their questions and refrain from providing answers concerning the employee’s department, college policies, etc.
