Making Mentoring Stick: A Case Study
Karallis, Takis; Sandelands, Eric
Education & Training, v51 n3 p203-209 2009
Purpose: This paper seeks to provide a case study of the mentoring process within Kentz Engineers & Constructors. Design/methodology/approach: The paper reflects the experiences of those leading the mentoring process within Kentz with insights extracted from a process of action, reflection and live experimentation. Findings: The paper concludes that mentoring is effective in the early stages of careers, but that care needs to be taken to ensure that organization-wide mentoring programmes achieve their objectives. Research limitations/implications: Findings are based on the experiences of one company and further research would be needed in order to generalize from these findings. Originality/value: The mentoring process analysed is unique to Kentz Engineers & Constructors, drawing on lessons from the broader literature. Published papers from the construction industry are rare in comparison with other market sectors.
