dc.description.abstractGiven the devastating impact of austerity upon employment in the public sector and the re-prioritising of union funds, it is essential for PCS to continue to develop new and innovative ways of offering support to their officials in respect of their existing roles as well as their potential development into decision making positions and onto committees. Moreover, true influence and representation within the workplace is achieved through an effective voice within the union and as such PCS must continue to promote gender proportionality throughout decision making structures and leadership roles at all levels. Mentoring as a support strategy within business and the third sector has received much attention in recent years and is reportedly positively associated with career and job satisfaction, expectations for advancement, intention to stay (increased tenure), being better able to deal with negative work scenarios and conflict, improved confidence, feeling better prepared and supported and feeling better integrated into a wider organisation or network. This research report, therefore, ultimately seeks to generate empirical evidence to support the development of a national PCS mentoring programme as a means of providing support and encouraging the development of all officials whilst also providing a means for female officials to better circumvent barriers to activism and development. This report presents the headline findings from a large scale survey of almost 500 PCS lay officials and concludes that where informal mentoring already occurs officials receive tangible developmental benefits, moreover there is universal support for the development of a national PCS mentoring programme.en_US
