The State Duma intends to discuss the consolidation at the legislative level of a single standard of mentoring for young professionals in employment. Ekaterina Stenyakina, a member of the lower house committee on labor, social policy and veterans’ affairs, spoke about this, TASS reports.
As Stenyakina explained, the legislative consolidation of the mentoring term will make it possible to switch to a coherent unified system of training, accompanying and supporting young personnel at specific enterprises and production.
“We need to create motivation for the mentors themselves. When we introduce a clear concept of “mentor”, this will allow the employer to create a fair bonus system for employees,” the deputy noted.
According to her, this initiative will be discussed at the site of the State Duma with those enterprises that have already introduced mentoring, with those regions that are successfully implementing it.
In turn, the first deputy chairman of the State Duma Committee on Youth Policy, Igor Kastyukevich, specified that the draft law is planned to be developed within a year.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Labor has developed a standard for organizing temporary employment for adolescents aged 14-18 and unemployed aged 18-25 who have graduated from colleges or universities.
