Head of Talent
Unmind aimed to enable its teams to assist young people in entering the workforce, but faced the challenge that each employee had varying schedules and availability for mentoring. As a result, some employees were only able to mentor every six weeks, while others could do so weekly. Unmind sought a flexible solution that respected these differences. However, existing solutions required long-term commitments, whereas Unmind sought a lightweight yet efficient approach.
Youth Mentoring gives the ability for Unmind to engage and inspire their employees to become advocates for social mobility, youth development and volunteering their time to give advice to a young person starting out in their career. Designed to help companies make a positive impact on the youth while also gaining a competitive edge in the market.
This partnership had a positive effect on the employees at Unmind. Through their participation in mentoring, employees were able to develop important skills such as communication, leadership, and empathy. They also experienced a sense of fulfillment and purpose by making a meaningful contribution to the lives of young people in their community. Additionally, volunteering as a team created a sense of camaraderie and shared purpose within the company, fostering a positive and supportive work environment.
Overall, Unmind's engagement in mentoring has had a ripple effect, benefiting not only the young people they mentor but also the employees and the company as a whole.
