Do Formal Mentoring Programs Matter?: A Longitudinal Randomized Experimental Study of Women Healthcare Workers
Marshall Egan, Toby; Rosser, Manda H.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Conference (AHRD) (Austin, TX, Mar 3-7, 2004) p226-233 (Symp. 11-2)
We report results from a pretest-posttest randomized experimental study comparing the impact of high versus low facilitation of formal mentoring programs on female healthcare workers' performance and attitudes. Results indicated increases in job performance, job satisfaction, and organizational commitment for mentoring program participants from both groups with larger gains made by the high facilitated group. These results suggest that facilitated HRD interventions have positive effects on the outcomes of mentoring programs for women employees. (Contains 1 table.) [For complete proceedings, see ED491481.]
