Groupon is full of smart people doing interesting work—the Sales Mentorship Program matches them up
Our Sales Mentorship Program is comprised of mentors and mentees from both Merchant and Business Development Sales groups. This means that no matter what sort of Sales you’re doing—hunting or farming—all reps have the opportunity to participate and grow.
“I remember how it felt starting in this sales job over 6 years ago with little insight on how to approach my day-to-day routine, so I enjoy being a resource for my mentees. Not only that, but they keep me hungry. Seeing my mentees succeed and get promoted only keeps me motivated to continue doing my job better,”
Dexter Peak, Business Development Mentor
What do mentors get out of the program?
Aside from 1:1 relationship building, mentors can strengthen their professional skills in a variety of ways: participating in professional development training sessions; attending monthly speaker leadership series; and the opportunity to lead meetings, scrums, and training sessions.
“Participating in mentorship is truly been my biggest key to success in sales. Having a talented peer be there for me on a professional and personal level has opened my eyes to what I didn’t originally think was possible here at Groupon. Each and every time I see my mentor I’m inspired to be better, sharper, stronger and more dedicated to my professional growth.”Gina Carlson
“This is a program where mentors can work on their own personal and professional development, while also helping their mentees achieve their goals. It allows them to push themselves towards their goals while learning from their mentees in the process. Most of all, it allows for those deserving to be recognized as the growing leaders they truly are.”Rheannon Gerlach
” Whether it was talking about foundational traits that I needed in order to succeed, or taking it to the next level and becoming more strategic in my thinking, I learned a lot of valuable things from my mentors. It only seems right that I give back to the program that helped me, while also benefiting from the different perspectives that I hear from various reps that I meet in the program.”Joe Fish
