How do I look for an HR Mentor?

(This came to me anonymously from an HR practitioner - Steve)

I seriously need a mentor, someone to meet with on a monthly basis. I'm just not sure how to get this established. I'm looking for someone to be a resource for me as a fellow HR practitioner. This isn't about establishing a mentoring program at my company.

I find it challenging to get out from my day-to-day role and workload to connect and find someone willing to do this. I wanted to ask what others are doing that has worked? Do you have a mentor? How did you find one? How does it work?

I really appreciate any ideas or input on this.

  • I'd check with your local SHRM Chapter. I know HRACO in Columbus matches mentors and mentees and takes volunteers for both. It takes time though, and you'll only get out of it what you put in. Good luck!
