Podcast: Why Reverse Mentoring Can Derive Big Benefits
Reverse mentoring, a concept first popularized by former General Electric CEO Jack Welch, is when a senior leader takes on a much younger employee to be their "mentor." The rationale is to ensure the leader remains connected with technological advances and other key developments affecting their workforce.
This podcast explores a reverse mentoring relationship that is close to home by featuring XpertHR Managing Director Scott Walker and his reverse mentor, Carenza Harvey, a millennial employee with Proagrica. Speaking with XpertHR Legal Editor David Weisenfeld, Walker and Harvey discuss the nature of their conversations and tangible ways in which such relationships can help any business. Both agree that a key to its success is the fact that Harvey does not report to Walker.
