Agata Pietroń-Pyszczek , Magdalena Borowska

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to determine whether people who continue their education and work at the same time show the need for support from a mentor, located in their current workplace (organization). A mentor is defined as an older and more experienced employee who, in a process of intensive interpersonal exchange, provides the protégé (mentee) with support, guidelines and feedback on professional and personal development plans. We conducted the survey in a group of 421 respondents using a survey questionnaire in 2019. Based on the results obtained, it can be concluded that only one in ten respondents felt the need for support from the mentor: men more often than women declared strong attitudes in this respect; in terms of generational differences, the greatest demand was indicated by representatives of Generation Y; differences in the declared level of demand were also revealed depending on the type of secondary school completed by the respondents.
