Mentors are both men and women. How do you measure the return on investment and success of the program? Through evaluations of the content and benefits of the program, participants expressed the clear wins of an expanded and positive network, increased leadership effectiveness and the ability to further understand the business. Between 50 percent and 60 percent of the participants in the 2013/14 program have experienced career movement – both horizontally and vertically.  The mentors have also had similar movement successes.  Early results of the 2015/16 program are reflecting a similar percentage of movement. All stated their increased levels of self-confidence through the ability to ask for ‘tough feedback’ and ‘hear it.’  GROW participants and mentors have also experienced considerable networking benefits as their mentoring teams continue after the program graduation with a focus of ongoing development. What lies ahead for the program and how it will continue to succeed? Due to the incredible success of the women from the inaugural GROW program, a Spring 2015 program was launched with plans to launch another program in the fall of 2016. Many of the GROW participants are now mentoring in a program the PSEG Foundation has sponsored with Rutgers University called WINGS, Women Investing In and Guiding Women.  Opportunities for similar mentoring roles have been built into several development programs and PSEG’s Employee Business Resource Groups to provide the participants with experienced mentors to reinforce learnings through real life business experiences. 2016 Would like to Comment?
