  14. 14. Testing Testing... “The concept is good and workable. But normally these concepts work best at college level. At office level to work, it needs open and politics-free environment and this should be the responsibility of the employer and the top most staff. Plus this should be part of the system and not some activity which starts off with a bang and then ends after a while.”
  15. 15. Proposed Solution # 2 Arrange Mentors For The New & Inexperienced Employees. Each new employee gets his or her own personal mentor who guides and coaches them step-by-step outside the office hours, so that the employees feel at ease within the work-space and are able to adapt quickly and efficiently to their work- environment.

  20. 20. Testing Testing... “Though such program has a definite potential, a lot depends on the personal interaction of the mentor and the employee. If they connect, then wow! But if they do not, that could cause trouble. The human angle has to be considered. So this solution, though probable, may not be the real answer. But it has a promise.” ~ The End ~
