Mentoring a New Era

2014 marked the second-year anniversary for Comcast’s ERG Mentorship Program, which pairs entry to mid-level employees with senior leaders for nine months to help support their career goals.

At year-end 2014, after three full cycles of mentorship matching, 54 of the 165 total mentees had been promoted since joining the program.

Similarly, the TEAM NBCUniversal Mentorship Program has been in effect since 2012, and is designed to identify high-potential mid-career employees for executive pipeline leadership coaching at NBCUniversal. By year-end 2014, 48 of 175 participant mentees had received a promotion.
