Most of us know that good teamwork in the workplace can lead to increased productivity, higher morale and a fulfilled, loyal workforce. But how to achieve a good and cohesive team within our workplace?

Mentoring is an essential element for leadership and team building in promoting generational cohesion within a workforce and improving retention. Mentoring programs are becoming increasingly popular in workplaces, as they help in reducing turnover, promoting growth, and overall help employees adjust to new positions as well as become prepared to move up in the company. Plus, Millennials, who will make up more then 50% of your workforce in the next decade, see mentoring as a crucial part of their career success so it can’t be ignored!

Great teams are not accidental, but rather, are the product of great leadership! Leaders who focus on building a cohesive workforce by utilizing the strengths and skill sets that characterize different generations and creating the conditions in which employees across all generations create a workplace where employees are supported and valued.
