What can the public sector offer to people who have graduated from the world’s best universities, worked in different countries, are specialised in niche areas, and who could easily choose to work where salaries are much higher?
Lithuania’s value proposition is Create Lithuania – a programme that offers a year spent working on issues that these people really care about and where they can make a real difference.
Now ten years old, the programme has numbers that speak for itself: after finishing the programme, 80% of the participants choose stay in Lithuania and 40% are still currently working directly in the public sector.
What has made this programme a success? What attracts young talent to stay in Lituania and the public sector after the programme? What are the main challenges of this approach? Find out in this talk.
