A Mentoring Program can provide an effective means to quickly acclimate a new employee by partnering him with a more experienced employee (see also On-Boarding). The person doing the mentoring is the ‘mentor’ and the one being mentored is the ‘protégé’. Traditional mentoring programs tend to use managers as mentors, but anyone with an expertise in particular skills can be one. The best bosses are informal mentors to all her subordinates and to others in the company.
