Mentoring: A No-Frills Guide, a booklet from Strategic Futures

Smart organizations plan today for tomorrow’s workforce realities.

Here are the facts: The workforce is aging. More than half the federal government workforce, as an example, is eligible for retirement. In the next five years, 40-65% of the US public and private workforce will be ready to retire. Once they retire, they will be off the payroll and the benefits of their institutional insight and wisdom will be lost to the next generation of leadership. When it comes to workforce planning and mentoring, the strategic future is now!

The breathtaking speed of modern commerce is stretching the workforce to its limits. Human capital executives and managers need a thoughtful and methodical approach to develop employee skills and futurity.

Whether you are a leader in a government agency, business, or a nonprofit organization, Strategic Futures can help you design and/or implement a structured, well-managed workplace mentoring program that builds the skills and culture needed to integrate new employees while achieving and cultivating the highest-and-best use of current employees’ aptitudes and talents. With our consulting and training, we can save you money and boost your human capital investment several fold.
