Why Does Mentoring Work? The Role of Perceived Organizational Support
Baranik, Lisa E.; Roling, Elizabeth A.; Eby, Lillian T.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v76 n3 p366-373 Jun 2010
The authors examined the mediating role of perceived organizational support in the relationship between mentoring support received and work attitudes. Perceived organizational support partly mediated the relationship between specific types of mentoring support and job satisfaction and affective organizational commitment. Specifically, sponsorship, exposure and visibility, and role modeling appear to be related to job satisfaction and organizational commitment through perceived organizational support. Perceived organizational support did not appear to mediate the relationship between other specific forms of mentoring support and job satisfaction and organizational commitment. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
