Mentors @ Work realized the need for an effective
apprenticeship program for small to medium size businesses.
Responding to this critical need, Mentors @ Work researched and created a state-of-the-art
system that businesses could follow and use to help them attract, train and retain new
employees, plus help current employees increase their skill sets and move into positions of great responsibility.
The demand for quality employees is high and the supply is low. To bring
in the people they need, the many businesses have cannibalized each other's
employee base instead of finding candidates from the outside.
This does nothing to solve the long-term employee shortage challenge.
The need for quality human resources is greater than it has ever been, and this is especially true in the technical trades.
Mentors @ Work
provides a unique method to build employees using its "We'll Manage It!" program training, on-going management of the mentoring process and web-based tracking to help
the businesses attract, train, and retain a better employee base.

Mentors @ Work is the result of a lifetime of work and dedication in the
area of occupational mentoring.
Mark Claypool, the founder of Mentors @ Work, has worked in occupational mentoring
and training for nearly 25 years. He began with the Career Exploring Division of the
Boy Scouts, he led the Business/Education Partnerships team of Skills USA/VICA, was Executive
Director of the I-CAR Education Foundation and was the official team leader of Team USA
that competed in the World Skills Championships in June of 2003.
Mark Claypool, as chairman of the Human Resource Committee for the Collision Industry
Conference (CIC), saw a need for a web-based occupational mentoring
program for ALL careers,
concentrating first on the technical trades.
The employment problems facing the automotive industry are no different from those facing
the construction industry, the carpentry industry, or any of the other technical trades.
We all must find a way to meet our employment needs successfully!
According to Claypool, "The dynamics of inter-personal relationships are the same regardless of
what occupational field you are talking about. We have taken what we learned during the research
and development phase of Mentors @ Work and applied it to the real world of work. Then we added
the work expectations of the industries we are working with and have a winning combination."
