Willingness to Mentor in Formal Workplace Mentoring Programs

Track: Human Resources Management

Keywords: mentoring, formal mentoring programs, perceived organizational support, self-disclosure

This study examines the willingness to be a mentor in formal workplace mentoring programs among mentors and protégés who recently participated in a formal mentoring program. Hypotheses were evaluated through a structural equation model. Results showed a positive relationship between perceived organizational support and self-disclosure with the willingness to mentor in a formal workplace mentoring program. In addition affective trust was shown to be positively related to self-disclosure. Based on these findings recommendations are made for theory and practice.
