ORGANISATIONAL BEHAVIOUR
CIA-3

INTRODUCTION
Mentoring is an essential leadership skill. In addition to managing and motivating
people, it's also important that you can help others learn, grow and become more
effective in their jobs.

Helping people move their careers in the right direction is a key element in
developing people.

CASE STUDY
BOBRICK WASHROOM EQUIPMENTS
Bobrick Washroom Equipment, Inc. has been manufacturing high quality washroom accessories for over 100
years. Headquartered in Hollywood, California, this family-owned business boasts six manufacturing divisions
across the United States and Canada and business operations that extend into 85 markets worldwide. In 2013,
Bobrick wanted to take its employee development to the next level by investing in emerging leaders who showed
potential for long-term growth, engaging with them in meaningful ways, and focusing on their specific
development needs. In addition, the company wanted to tap into existing leaders and find a way to help them
share their wisdom with others within the organization. Elizabeth Bayee, Bobricks Learning & Development
Manager, says that building significant interpersonal relationships with emerging leaders and executives was
critical because the company wanted the emerging leaders to have individuals they could consult with regarding
unfamiliar situations whenever they came up. It soon became clear that developing a strong mentoring program
with a focus on leadership would be necessary. As a result, Bayee set out to find the right mentoring partner to
support Bobricks initiative and to help her successfully develop and manage the companys new program.
Bayee and her team did a thorough search for a mentoring vendor and narrowed the field to Management
Mentors and another company. Bayee says it was Rene Petrin, Management Mentors founder and president,
who helped seal the deal, because his approach and mentoring philosophy aligned with her teams vision for
Bobricks mentoring program. She also appreciated the many resources (such as free white papers) available on
the companys website. And, of course, there was Mentoring Complete, the signature software fromManagement
Mentors.
