Abstract The study aimed at examining the relationship between workplace mentorship, employee engagement and employee retention. The study adopted a correlation study design with a population of 300 employees from different departments. Systemic random sampling technique was used to draw a sample of 77 respondents from the population. Data was collected from respondents using self-administered standard questionnaire and through Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 23.0, data was analyzed. Descriptive statistics showed that 55.8% of the respondents were male and 44.2% were female, majority were aged between 20-30 years (54.5%). Results from Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient (r) further indicated that there is a significant positive relationship between workplace mentorship and employee engagement; similarly, there was a significant positive relationship between employee engagement and employee retention. Lastly, there was a significant negative relationship between workplace mentorship and employee retention. Therefore, basing on the findings, mentoring programs should be flexibly designed to allow an informal (personality, affinity-based) approach to mentor-mentee matching and for the formal mentoring process; a flexible approach to goal-setting supported by good planning should inform its structure as this can easily boost employee engagement by increasing their dedication to work.
