Cross-mentoring for executives and trainee executives

February 15, 2010

Places still available in the 8th Cross-Mentoring programme run by bremer arbeit gmbh
09.03.2010 marks the start of the 8th Cross-Mentoring programme run by bremer arbeit gmbh and only a few places are still available. With its inter-industry programme, whereby executives place their knowledge and experience at the disposal of men and women who will make up the next generation of managers, bremer arbeit offers those responsible for human resources in companies a stimulating and successful instrument for personnel development. Since 2006, small and medium-sized enterprises have been taking part just as much as major industrial companies. Throughout the entire Northwest region and across all branches of industry, more than 150 executives and up-and-coming employees, start-up entrepreneurs and project leaders have taken part in the tandem programme. Cross-mentoring works according to a simple principle: an experienced professional or manager (mentor) advises and supports a less experienced person (mentee) from a different company - for instance a motivated trainee or potential manager - in his or her professional and personal development. The goal is always to make the mentees as fit as possible in everyday management and to back them up in the concrete problems they face with tried-and-tested solutions. The time required each month for mentees is 3-4 hours, and mentors spend 2-3 hours a month on the collaboration. The costs for the entire year lie at 1,500 euros + 19%. If companies would like to further their employees through this programme, they should contact bremer arbeit gmbh.
