The programme first started in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, with one simple goal: to support HR Professionals by partnering them with senior-level HR Consultant in the field. What began simply as an idea quickly turned into a popular course.
We are convinced that the benefits to those participating in a mentoring relationship can be vast; mentees gain perspective, clarity and insights to help them achieve their career goals.
How does it work
The programme is aimed at tapping into the knowledge and experience of our more senior HR mentors to help mentees with Dutch Labour law and upgrade HR skills. The communication methods during the mentorship programme can be via email, Skype, phone calls and other methods as mentee and mentor see fit.
Language: The mentoring is in English. However, it is possible to have a mentor speaking the Dutch language.
Duration: The programme runs for a 6 month period. Once partnerships are made, mentors and mentees meet over 2 times per month to discuss career goals, skills, portfolios and best practices.
The programme starts with a kick-off session moderated by the professional HR mentor and is concluded by a closing session to share experiences and facilitate ‘lessons learned‘.
The goal of this partnership is to have a learning and development opportunity by improving HR skills and to advance the current career. A mentoring partnership program is tailor-made to your needs.
During the HR Mentoring program real-life HR cases, Dutch labour law specifics and interactive discussions are enabling the mentee to transfer the lessons into their own specific professional environments. The content is reviewed frequently and is therefore in line with current labour law and HR market practices. The benefits of the program are:
- Access to a support system during stages of your career development
- Exposure to diverse perspectives and experiences
- Direct access to powerful resources within your profession
- Identification of skill gaps and greater knowledge
- Foundation of a lasting professional (expanded) network
