Multigenerational and Virtual: How Do We Build a Mentoring Program for Today's Workforce?
Houck, Christiana
Performance Improvement, v50 n2 p25-30 Feb 2011
This article looks at virtual mentoring programs through a lens of generational differences, technological preferences, and communication styles. Best practices are framed to address the need to prepare the incoming millennials to lead the workforce as baby boomers exit. After a review of the literature, ideas are culled to apply the theory to a virtual mentoring program. Special attention is paid the concept of virtual mentoring based on lack of collocation of modern teams. (Contains 1 table.)
