Atlanta, GA – The Transitions, a volunteer-run organization created to help the workers’ compensation industry address the influx and outflux of talent over the coming decade, has officially launched an industrywide mentorship program to elevate the next generation of workers’ compensation leaders.
The new, cross-organizational mentorship program was launched during the group’s third webinar of the year, Reimagine Mentorship, held on February 18, 2021. A recorded version of the session is now available:
The Transitions’ mentorship network is a free program to connect mentors and mentees and promote professional and personal growth. While focused primarily on payers and service providers within the work comp industry, the program is a big tent available to anyone in the broader insurance and risk management market.
“A strategic and transparent mentoring program is a critical component for our industry to successfully address the talent crisis,” said Mark Pew, senior vice president of product development and marketing at Preferred Medical and co-founder of The Transitions and the mentorship program. “The fact that The Transitions program is open-sourced and free makes it widely available to those who are passionate about intergenerational knowledge sharing and learning.”
In addition to Pew, thirteen other industry leaders serve on the Mentorship Advisory Council and have jointly developed, launched, and will now execute this collaborative program. The Council has two teams led by The Transitions co-founders: Barry Bloom, managing principal of The bdb Group, leads the mentor team and Dr. Claire Muselman, Workers’ Recovery Director at Continental Western Group, leads the mentee team. The teams will help match mentors and mentees and provide education and ongoing support beyond the matching process.
