The AHRI Mentoring Program facilitates mentoring relationships, allowing members to share advice, knowledge and experiences. The program enables links to be established between experienced HR professionals from within the AHRI membership and members who are seeking opportunities for career and professional development. The program aims to match mentors and mentees with similar fields of interest or similar roles.
The AHRI Mentoring Program typically runs over a 10-11 month period. Applicants are required to complete an online application form, which will be given to state mentoring committees who then match mentors and mentees.
An orientation will be conducted early in the year once mentors and mentees have been matched. The session provides an overview of the structure of the program, the roles and responsibilities of mentors/mentees and allows for networking. The session also gives the matched pairs the chance to meet face to face and determine a schedule to suit for further communication and meetings.
Mentors and mentees are responsible for ongoing contact. The format of the relationship will be determined by the pair and may include e-mail, phone or face-to-face meetings.
A mid-year meeting will be held in each state to allow participants to ‘check in’, share ideas and provide feedback regarding the program. In addition ongoing feedback will be sought by AHRI regularly throughout the program.
Finally, at the end of the year a final event will be held to conclude the formal mentoring program, allow participants to share experiences and give feedback about the program for future planning.
AHRI members can apply to participate in the Mentoring Program. The program is open to participants who are employed in a HR role or hold an HR qualification.
The cost of the program is an administrative fee of $110 (inc GST) for mentees only.
