A mentor plays the role of an advocate, support system, and buddy—they answer any questions for new hires new/early to professional life in consulting, chat through challenges and provide support to ensure a smooth transition. Mentors welcome new employees into the firm and create an avenue—outside of their professional development manager, project manager and project team—who they can go to share their experiences and ask questions.
Who will I work with & learn from?
We are fully committed as a leadership group that our employees are empowered with clarity and transparency as to what is expected and how they are performing against annual objectives.
Our core competencies are the foundation or the building blocks for professional development and advancement, ensuring objectives are clear/specific, performance evaluations objective and transparent, and there is clarity as to what is required in skill/competency development to allow for advancement. Competencies are also then the basis for training and professional development.
As an organization, we want to make sure we are leveraging the vast history and library of prior work and our collective best thinking in the execution of projects on a go-forward basis. Our standards and guidelines repository acts as a very valuable learning resource, while it also helps to improve the efficiency and consistency of our quality through the application of best practices across the company.
We invest heavily in our people and their professional development, including a 10 week customized on-boarding and training program, an expansive L&D repository, as well as a cohort based training model specific to both associates and consultants. The cohort training model will allow BluePrint employees of similar levels to interact across offices in a setting that is conducive to brainstorming and sharing experiences, while also learning about relevant topics and developing skills.
In addition to regular learning opportunities throughout the year, our training program also includes in-person training summits in the summer for associates and consultant. These summits will bring together colleagues of similar levels to discuss new ideas, practice skills, and learn from each other’s experiences.
