Toyota invests in our people’s growth through a wide variety of development programs and opportunities so that each and every team member is empowered to reach his or her full potential. One of the most valuable ways we do this is through mentoring. Mentoring matters because it helps grow our individual capabilities and exposes us to new ideas and perspectives — both of which are essential to achieving Toyota’s vision of mobility for all. We are a development-first organization, and individual development fuels organizational growth, enabling us to have a positive impact on society.
Toyota’s mentoring program, Mentoring@Toyota, is a vital component of our development strategy and is founded on The Toyota Way twin pillars of Continuous Improvement and Respect for People and supported by our Cultural Priorities and Core Values. Our development focuses on the 3 E’s:
- Experience — learning from new and different experiences
- Exposure — learning from other perspectives
- Education — expanding knowledge and gaining new skills
