Tips for Navigating a Mentoring Program Pilot Unveiled by River

Denver, January 7, 2019— In celebration of National Mentoring Month, the mentoring experts at River have published a new eBook for organizations that want to launch a mentoring program. Many companies start with a pilot when they begin a new program, yet not everyone knows for certain what the best approach to the pilot might be. That’s where River’s new eBook can help.

In the Navigating a Mentoring Pilot eBook, readers will discover six critical factors they need to consider when designing their mentoring program pilot:

  1. What to name it (should you even call it a pilot?)
  2. What the audience size should be
  3. Who should be recruited to participate
  4. How to set expectations with the pilot participants
  5. How to engage critical stakeholders
  6. Designing the overall structure of the pilot

“Over nearly two decades of working with clients that run mentoring programs via our mentoring software, we have seen some hits and misses in how organizations execute their plans when it comes to piloting a program. This new eBook gives readers a chance to assess their strategies against the best practices we have developed through our hands-on experiences with some of the top companies in the world,” says Chris Browning, President of River.

The Navigating a Mentoring Pilot eBook contains additional tips and information on how organizations can get started with their mentoring programs, and it is free to download. Get your copy today!
