Modern mentoring relationships are far more varied and wider in scope. Today's mentoring relationships do not conform to age-based hierarchy, but adjust to fulfill the needs of employees of all ages. They enable young graduates with experience in the newest technology to be Mentors to older employees who have not yet had the opportunity to learn about that technology. Likewise, they ensure that experienced employees impart leadership skills, competencies and behaviors to their younger counterparts, so that the latter can continue to build a solid, stable organization with promising growth prospects.
