In 2011 BPS Birmingham Future commissioned a research study, the Future Commission, into the challenges facing the professional services sector in Birmingham. Whilst we don’t necessarily have a shortage of talent in Birmingham, we have to ensure that we’re a city region that people want to live, work and develop their careers. A successful way of achieving this is by investing in and supporting our young professionals from day one, when they are still in higher education in the city region, right through to their mid-level careers.
The most successful pairings also ‘check in’ with each other via informal phone calls or email, in-between the scheduled face-to-face meetings.
Good quality mentoring relationships may end when the mentee has outgrown the need for the mentor’s guidance and direction. At this point, the relationship may evolve into a strong friendship, in which the two see each other as peers.
