PCC's mentoring program recognizes participants

Mentors and mentees were invited to a get-together on May 24 to be recognized for their participation in PCC’s Leadership Academy Mentoring Program (LAMP). Since June 2015, 26 employee volunteers have mentored 36 newly hired employees. The program’s goal is to build a culture of shared knowledge and experiences.
