Mentoring by seniors as a tool for innovation and knowledge management in organisations
Within the framework of a literature review project, lecturers from the University of Deusto have written this scientific article:
We live in a complex environment that makes organisations face increasing challenges. Organisations are constantly looking for new strategies and tools to become more competitive and efficient, while retaining and developing the talent of their employees. At the same time, an ageing population is taking place in developed societies. We find ourselves with a generation of older people, who are no longer active in a work environment, but who are active, participative, with a good quality of life and a lot of wisdom and experience to contribute. In these pages we will explain and defend the role that these older people can play in supporting other individuals in organisations. We refer to mentoring, carried out by a retired older person (mentor) to another active person (mentee), as a tool that provides value and generates benefits for all parties involved. The methodology used consists of a review of the scientific literature.
