Employees are valuable assets to an organization. They are integral in contributing to its overall profit and success. However, friction may inevitably arise between these employees after some time due to innumerable reasons, and it may spiral out of control. Some of these problems include behavioral issues, ego clashes, and abusing of authority by top-level employees. The most noticeable problems arise between senior management and junior-level employees. Members within a team also succumb to ego issues, and this may lead to worse problems. In addition, talented employees leave the organization for better pay packages elsewhere, and there might be instances of unskilled employees not contributing enough to productivity. These imbalances, if not tackled at the grass-root level, will lead to more significant problems.

Workforce imbalance has always been a noticeable predicament in small organizations as well as multinational organizations. Imbalance can be classified into two categories: lack of talented resources and the other could be discord/animosity between employees. If the imbalance in an organization is not taken care of, it could be detrimental to the company and ruin its reputation in the long run. If these problems are dismissed as trivial, the situation could be blown out of proportion and may result in employees quitting the organization for good. Therefore, we must give importance to these issues. The HR department and mentors must work together to eliminate these problems at the grass-root level.

While it is true that perfection can ever be attained, a mentor can always enhance the professional lives of employees through constant assistance and guidance. A balanced workforce is guaranteed to lend better performance, productivity, and efficiency. Moreover, a mentor’s timely aid could also help the organization retain talent in the core areas of a business.

One of the best ways to create balance in a workforce is by identifying valuable skill sets of employees and encourages them to share their knowledge with new employees. Secondly, a mentor can be a tool to enhance interpersonal relationships between different members in an organization and bring harmony.
