Empowering Employees to Break Through Isolation and Join Forces in Achieving their Professional Goals
Submitted by Volunteer Vision
March 30, 2021 /CSRwire/ - With many of us working remotely for several months now, the current situation is causing a continuous strain on employees and makes it difficult to implement DE&I measures as effectively as before. It is becoming increasingly clear that times like these are calling for additional measures that ensure employees are heard and supported in a way that acknowledges their concerns.
One increasingly relevant method to connect and engage employees from diverse backgrounds while overcoming societal and geographical barriers is digital mentoring. Volunteer Vision, a digital mentoring software provider and social business in the CSR and DE&I sector, has developed several structured programs to help employees break through isolation and join forces in achieving their professional goals during these difficult times. This helps companies to continue to maximize the impact of their DE&I or talent strategy, like increasing promotion rates across minorities or boosting retention rates.
Currently, over 70 e-learning modules are available for mentors and mentees to choose from to design their learning journey allowing them to focus on their individual mentoring goals. Examples of successful module combinations are:
While the purpose is to connect people, every step within the Volunteer Vision platform is implemented purely digitally. From the user recruiting and matching, their training and preparation, to the actual meeting of mentor and mentee in the virtual classroom. In the classroom, the mentoring pair is connected via video chat while utilizing embedded e-learning materials. This way, employees can interact with each other regardless of their location and build valuable connections even at a distance.
