Ask most successful professionals how they got to where they are today, and they will probably tell you about the person or people who helped them to get started, develop, and advance in their careers. Workplace mentoring is especially critical in supporting the inclusion of employees with disabilities. The Workplace Mentoring Primer was developed for employers and employees interested in establishing formal mentoring relationships and offers specific strategies, tools and activities for implementation.
