How Do We Get Employees to Mentor?

What do we do when experienced employees don't want to mentor fresh blood? Specializing in products for which experienced talent is hard to recruit, my company has to focus a lot on developing new talent and training them on the technical skills to build a critical talent pipeline. Because of the overall economic volatility, the employees feel insecure of losing what they have. We have found out through exit interviews that young talent is leaving us because they receive little help and training from their seniors. We suspect fear of losing their current position is the reason. What do we do? — No One Cares Here, manufacturing/production, Lahore, India

How Do We Build Culture?

Would it help us build camaraderie and culture to create an inclusive “get-to-know-you sheet” to encourage our employees to develop stronger relationships? Honestly, our focus on culture is newfound. We know it’s important and want to develop tools that nurture it, yet some of our managers don’t fully appreciate how culture ties back to their responsibilities. Suggestions? —Nervous Newbie, project manager, financial services, Cleveland, Ohio
