The HRACO Mentoring Program
Although human resource professionals have informally been mentors to others in the field for decades, formal SHRM mentoring programs across the country have had great success. We believe our members in Central Oregon can also benefit from such a program.
The Mentoring Program is still accepting applications for HR Professionals who would like to be mentored.
