Retired Professionals should be required to mentor younger peers for half a day one day a week.
The lack of dedicated mentors is a serious problem in many high skill jobs and should be encouraged as a way to improve government services. The retirees could also transition easier into retirement and would be given two extra years credit for their retirement pay.
We will be losing many skilled officers and role models in the current year. Those who are behind them may work in their jobs but can never and should not be expected to carry on their legacy.
Those officers will create their own legacy.
In my case, I am grasping a role that I never intended experienced role model. It would be good to see the old retirees for a short time each week. Retirement should be more transitional going to fewer days a week so that the retiree can better transition to post work life socially.
