About the Mentor Program

The Mentor Program was founded in 2004 by Chapter leaders who had the goal of fostering collaboration between students and HR leaders. The founders identified the need and benefit of integrating students into the workplace in order to support students during their transition upon graduating and entering the workplace. The Mentor Program objective is to provide opportunities for MT|SHRM Professional  Members to prepare and strengthen MT|SHRM  Student Members to become the next generation of  successful HR professionals, through opportunities  to learn from their mentors’ personal experiences in  Human Resources. The Mentor Program partners a MT|SHRM Student Chapter Member from a local university with a MT|SHRM Professional Member. The professional members will provide mentorship to the student members by preparing and strengthening them to become the next successful leaders in our field. The program will begin in early October and continue through April. Attendance to one group event, the “Pairing Evening,” will be in early fall. All other meetings are scheduled at the mentor and student’s convenience on a monthly basis. The “Pairing Evening” is when you will meet your mentor/student and network with other program participants. You can get creative with all other meetings. Try lunch, dinner, coffee, MT|SHRM meetings, MTSU breakfast meeting, or golf. Job shadowing opportunities for the mentees are always great! With this program, you can gain a long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationship. This gives you the opportunity to pass knowledge and experience on to the next generation of professionals.

Give future HR Managers exposure to Human Resources in the business world, and provide direction to students studying Human Resources. Help to build an accurate picture of what to expect when the students graduate and enter the work force. What’s more, you can build the pipeline of talent for your HR team. Finally, you’ll enjoy the contagious energy and enthusiasm of university students. With past success, we expect a greater demand for mentors for the 2018-2019 year. If you are unable to participate this year, please consider encouraging a colleague or two to participate.

Sponsor Presented Luncheon

Wednesday, October 3, 2018
11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Findley - South Point Building
5301 Virginia Way, Suite 400
Brentwood, TN 37027

Goals, Decisions and Process:  Strategically Managing Your Health Benefits Program
Presented by Findley


Do you have a strategic plan for your health benefits program? Do you have a process for managing your program and your fiduciary responsibilities? Are your education and enrollment programs leading to good decisions from your participants? This seminar, co-sponsored by Findley and Adams and Reese, will help you define the multi-year strategy and process for your program, helping you attract and retain the best talent and enhance its value to your organization. 

Brief Presentation Summaries: 

  1. Employers sponsoring health benefits for their employees recognize that the cost and complexity of their health benefits program increases every year.  Employers looking to optimize their health benefits program, both for their employees and their organization, need a multi-year strategic plan, and a data-driven process to monitor progress toward their goals.
  2. The rules governing health benefits programs continue to evolve and it’s important for plan sponsors to stay abreast to effectively manage their fiduciary and compliance responsibilities.
  3. As health benefits programs become more complex, it’s important for plan sponsors to implement participant education programs and decision-support tools that enable participants to make well-informed, sound decisions on their benefits.  This presentation describes the process to select appropriate tools and technologies that are the best fit for your workforce and organization. 

Schedule: 11:30am – 12 Noon - registration, networking, and lunch served. Program from 12:00 Noon - 1:30 pm.
