HR Dive: 42% say mentorship programs don’t meet expectations

Excerpt: U.S. employees aren’t getting what they want in terms of mentorship, according to a survey of 700 adults by marketing agency Mindshare. Forty-two percent of respondents said their company either doesn’t offer any type of mentorship program or doesn’t offer enough of such opportunities.

Men in the survey were more likely to say they get enough or more than enough mentorship at work than women were, according to Mindshare. Nearly two-thirds of all workers surveyed want ongoing feedback and coaching, but 28% said they didn’t receive enough of either on the job. Another 60% said they want to work remotely at least some of the time, but 43% of women say they have enough opportunities to do so, versus 61% of men.
