Four Employees Complete 2023 Mentorship Program


The County of Nevada is pleased to announce that four employees have completed the 2023 Mentorship Program, the inaugural year.  The Mentorship Program was developed by Nevada County’s Organizational Excellence Council (OEC)  in 2020. The council is a group of employees interested in providing input and recommendations on county programs, functions, strategies, and organizational development. The OEC is an integral part of our county’s commitment to functioning as a high performing organization and the OEC and its members contribute ideas and leadership toward reaching that goal.   

The participants completed a full six-month program that took place from June  through November. Congratulations, Cindy Hunt (Human Resources, mentee), Desiree Belding (Information & General Services, mentor), Matthew McDermott (Assessor’s Office, mentee), and Steve Monaghan, (Director of Information & General Services Agency, mentor). 

Based on program expectations from the mentees, their learning interests, and goals specified at the start of the program, the mentees accomplished the following as a result of their participation: 

  • Increased career network and exposure
  • Professional development for career advancement opportunities
  • Created and helped develop a culture of growth to help promote production and employee engagement
  • Supervisorial training and development 

 Our mentees were strategically paired with mentors who could help them accomplish their specific set of goals. We attribute a lot of the success of the mentees and that of the entire mentorship program due to the mentors having such unique skillsets, knowledge, and expertise to share. 

 We are proud to formally recognize each participant’s achievements and commitment to personal and professional development. We want to express our gratitude to our participants for being committed to the program and we thank each mentor and mentee for all that they have done to help shape the future of the employees of Nevada County.  

 We are planning the 2024 Mentorship program with many changes based on the input from the first graduating class.  Be on the look for a call for both Mentors and Mentees in March 2024.
