Advantages of mentoring in organization: some differences between mentees and non-mentees - Organizational literature has described the advantages of mentoring for mentors and, above all, for mentees. A survey of 200 respondents employed in three organizations in northwestern Italy shows that mentees have higher mean scores for job satisfaction, self-efficacy on the job and positive emotions at work than non-mentees. Mentees also show lower mean scores for negative emotions at work than non-mentees. This last result, however, is not confirmed by the regression analysis. Mentees reporting different degrees of satisfaction with the mentoring experience show significant differences in selfefficacy on the job and in variables that investigate mentoring perceptions.
