The Work Context and Mentoring: Do Job Characteristics Influence Mentoring Received?
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the influence of job characteristics on mentoring received. A survey questionnaire was sent to 435 employees from 29 preschools in Norway and 284 responses were returned, a response rate of 65.3%. Exploratory factor analysis and stepwise regression analysis were used to analyze the data while age was used as a control variable. The results reveal that social support and feedback from others have a significant influence on mentoring received, indicating that coordination of work based on these job characteristics could promote mentoring received in preschools.
