Professional Mentorship Program Overview
As an added benefit of membership, CPHR Manitoba offers the
Professional Mentorship Program. The aim of this member-only program is to help
link established human resources professionals with students, emerging HR
practitioners, and HR professionals looking to transition to a new field of
interest, taking on a new capacity within their organizations, or interested in
developing new skills for future career aspirations. These relationships enable
the program participants and business leaders to exchange knowledge and
experience relating to skill, culture and values. Participants gain valuable individual feedback and may
observe companies and their leaders at work. Overall, relationships of trust, respect and appreciation
are built to enhance our shared community. The CPHR Manitoba Professional Mentorship
Program is committed to promoting professionalism and mutual benefit to both
Mentor and Mentee.
The CPHR Manitoba Professional Mentorship Program runs from
September to April. Two events for participants of the Professional Mentorship
Program will be organized to celebrate the valuable relationship between Mentor
and Protégé. These events will allow all participants to socialize and network as a whole community. The form and frequency of the contact between mentors and protégés will vary. Mentors and Mentees would be expected to:
to at least 2-4 hours per month of interaction with their mentoring partner
during the program (face to face, phone, email, Skype)
a written learning and development plan at the beginning of the relationship
and track their interaction with each other during the program
a program kick-off where mentors and protégés will receive training and information on program objectives
a survey at the end of the program to provide valuable feedback for the future
of the program
