Training and development class | Human Resource Management homework help

You work for the Computer House (CH), a computer retailer and service provider in your city. You are the training manager within CH. CH employs approximately 250 people in a variety of positions that range from retail and customer service specialists in the store to on-call technical home support to all of the supporting functions of the organization (e.g., accounting, human resources, purchasing, etc.). CH is entertaining the option of providing a formal mentoring program to its employees but first it needs to identify some viable candidates to serve as mentors. As the training manager, it’s your job to put this program together.

I am more concerned with the strategic growth of the organization. I will need to understand the value of the mentor program in order to sign off on it.

Some of the best employees that I find are right on our Sales floor. They get hired initially because they have a passion about all things computer. Once they’ve proven that they can interact with customers, I can use them to make home technical support visits. A mentoring program will be a fantastic way to continue to hone their customer service skills as well as to begin to develop them for other positions in the organization, over time.
