In this survey by Sange and Srivasatave, employees who were part of a mentoring relationship were found to have significantly higher engagement scores than employees who were not. Mentored employees:

  • Felt more positively about their organization as a place to work for
  • Felt more positively about their organization’s senior leadership
  • Believed their organization provided opportunities for career growth
  • Felt informed about the future course of their organization

Researchers analyzed forty-three studies comparing the various career outcomes of mentored and non-mentored employees. Compared to non-mentored employees, mentored employees:

  • Receive higher compensation
  • Receive a greater number of promotions
  • Feel more satisfied with their career
  • Feel more committed to their career
  • Are more likely to believe that they will advance in their career
