HHS Mentoring Program

The Department of Health and Human Services has a workforce of over 65,000 employees across the nation. Their mission is to “ensure the health and well-being of Americans by providing for effective health and human services.” To accomplish this mission, HHS employs a variety of methods to develop and retain a diverse and high-performing workforce. The HHS Mentoring Program is a major component of the effort to:

  1. Develop and retain a diverse, high-performing workforce
  2. Preserve the knowledge and skills of employees nearing retirement age, and
  3. Help new employees transition into HHS.

The Program is fundamentally built on leveraging the knowledge and experience of individuals that have strong leadership and technical competencies in order to develop others within the HHS workforce – “Partnering for Excellence.” The Program nurtures excellence by bringing employees who have strong leadership abilities and critical knowledge into teaching/coaching relationships with less experienced employees. The HHS Mentoring Program highlights the importance of “Partnering for Excellence” to enhance individual and organizational performance.
