State Dept. of Labor & Regulation encourage mentor programs

January is National Mentoring Month, and the state Department of Labor and Regulation is celebrating the month aimed at expanding quality mentoring opportunities to connect more individuals with quality mentors.

State Labor and Regulation Secretary Marcia Hultman said these programs help ensure new employees enter the workforce feeling prepared and confident.

Mentor programs in the workplace lead to improved career outcomes, engagement, retention and improved inclusion. Secretary Hultman said that by helping mentors learn new skills and consider different points of view, they learn to be more organized, share information clearly and guide someone else to grow personally and professionally.

More information and mentoring tools can be found online on the state Department of Labor and Regulation’s website.
