• The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Workforce Mentoring Award was established with the purpose of honoring an outstanding leader in the area of mentoring in the workplace, whether it be through a formal mentoring program within their department, or on a more informal basis through the candidate’s own initiative. 

    Recipients of this award play a vital role in preparing the Commonwealth’s workforce of tomorrow by serving as a teacher, role model, and confidante to either a subordinate or peer in the workplace. The recipient(s) of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Workforce Mentoring Award have made an ongoing and continuous commitment to the professional development of their fellow employee, sharing their expertise and transferring their knowledge in a capacity that goes far beyond the standard expectations of the job.
