”We are thrilled to launch a new mentor program for managers in NODE and Eyde companies. We seem to have found very competent mentors, and protégées that are eager to learn”, says Elin Strand, Project Manager for NEW Mentor and Department Manager at Huntonit.
NEW Mentor is a place for talent and experience to meet. The idea is to match a senior manager or executive with a relatively new manager.
“If the protégée is from a NODE-company, the mentor will be from an Eyde-company, and vice versa. We find it rewarding to work across industries. It broadens the scope”, says Strand.
The 18-months long program kicked off in Kristiansand Friday. NEW Mentor is organized by NEW (NODE Eyde Women), but both women and men are eligible to enter.
“We have a good gender mix, close to 50-50”, says Strand.
