Panel 4 | Mentoring for Modernisation

Mentoring is crucial in a public sector organisation to ensure development, retain present employees, and develop the next generation of leaders. As it stands, 2022 showed a lower employee turnover rate than 2021 numbers; nonetheless, the percentage of public sector workers moving between departments more than doubled last year to 4.8%, suggesting that upskilling the workforce promotes retention. Mentoring is essential for modernising the sector.

Mentoring inside an organisation benefits more than just the person acquiring the information and abilities to further their career; it also benefits mentors as they improve. Mentoring allows you to establish your own network while also broadening your knowledge and encouraging self-reflection.
