Mentoring is defined as a professional relationship in which an experienced person (the mentor) assists another (the mentee) in developing specific skills and knowledge that will enhance the less-experienced person’s professional and personal growth. The ISSA Hygieia Network (IHN) Mentoring Program facilitates and encourages professional development of members at any stage in their career and in any area related to their work in the professional cleaning industry.

In the U.S., women earn almost 60 percent of undergraduate degrees, yet they make up only 14.6 percent of executive officers, 8.1 percent of top earners and 4.6 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs. Currently, six in ten (61 percent) Millennials benefit from having somebody to turn to for advice, or who helps develop their leadership skills, such as a mentor.

Without a trusted mentor, young employees may not advance professionally or choose to quit and seek different career paths. Employee retention is a challenge for nearly every business, but within the jan/san industry alone, the annual turnover rate is approximately 300 percent.

With an overarching remit of supporting career advancement for women at all levels in the industry, the ISSA Hygieia Network Mentorship will help young professionals begin their career with a step ahead and help businesses improve employee retention.

The ISSA Hygieia Network Mentoring Program facilitates one-to-one mentoring relationships that connect mentees with leaders in the industry to learn and develop. Career mentoring helps you to expand networks, gain new knowledge and insights, and build new skills.
