Interesting Stats:

  • Mentors are SIX times more likely to be promoted to a superior job.
  • Both mentors and mentees are approximately 20% more likely to get a raise than people who do not participate in a mentoring program.
  • 25% of mentees and 28% of mentors receive a raise – versus only 5% of managers who are not mentors
  • Employees who receive mentoring are promoted FIVE times more often than people who do not have mentors.


A mentor is typically someone who helps another individual grow, develop, or progress forward in their career. Mentoring another individual is one of the greatest gifts you can give him or her, and there’s almost no better feeling in the world than to help another person accomplish his or her dreams. Outside of personal satisfaction, some benefits of mentoring include understanding your business better, understanding how people perceive you better, and becoming a better problem solver.
