Invest 10% of your time to do self-development and improvements, that is one of our requirements, when someone new wants to join Definity First they must read and agree to a letter making this compromise.

A little bit about Definity First's mentorship program

Why? Simple, we believe that the decisions about where you spend your personal time, energy and talent are the ones that end up shaping your life’s long-term strategy; and we are always looking for people that have personal goals and a life purpose, without a purpose life can be empty. I know that it might be difficult for some people to even think about what they want to eat for lunch tomorrow; however, taking time from your busy and hectic life to write down your life’s mission and purpose, your goals and to-do list is one of the most important activities one can achieve.

The allocation of choices we make, can lead our lives to be very different from what we intended when we graduated; it can be an amazing experience or it can be a waste of resources and year of our lives.

That is one of the main reasons why at Definity First we have as a formal and mandatory plan for all our associates the Mentorship Program; to have the opportunity of being paired up with other people that might have more experience in other areas different than yours or that are experts in the same area as you is a priceless chance to be given the opportunity of develop and grow and also to help you and guide you to make that plan or write down those goals you want them to happen.  

With a mentorship program, a company can grow and learn

Our Culture is that of reinventing ourselves and to be always learning new methods of doing things better, that is why humbleness is one of the most important aptitudes we look for in our people; to be able to fully appreciate and take advantage of being paired up with a Mentor requires a humble eagerness to learn something from everybody, making it so that you’re learning opportunities will be as unlimited as you want them to be.

It is not about learning only from the people “you think” are smarter than you, it is about looking at each other and finding something new and learn, grow and when you have finally reached a higher ladder, help the ones just coming up behind you. That is our culture and the main reason why our Mentorship Program exists.

Our mentors are experts in their own field of work but more than that, they are here to help give some guidance and lend an ear for everyone that decides to take the challenge of joining us.

So, are you ready to give your everyday choices the importance they require?
