This proposal is for designing a company-wide professional mentoring
program to provide necessary informal vocational training intended to enable lower-level employees to learn from their superiors. Specifically, the mentoring program is intended to address specific areas of professional competence in which many low-level employees have exhibited a relative deficiency. Various aspects of the program are outlined in order to be very clear about goals and how to achieve them. In particular, the proposal addresses burnout for both parties and maintaining momentum in the program. Responsibilities of both mentors and students are detailed. The paper concludes with a discussion of how the mentoring initiative is to be assessed and evaluated.
