Where are the mentors?

08 July 2019

Fewer than half of AAT members have ever received mentoring during their career, according to a new study from AAT. This is well below the industry average. More worryingly, just 7% of AAT members report that their organisation runs a formal mentoring programme. This was lower than any other industry, and in stark contrast to the 28% of finance and accounting workers reporting the same thing.

However, among AAT members there is a great deal of enthusiasm for mentoring schemes. Some 42% of members want to become a mentor, just behind the 43% from all finance and accounting workers.

Similarly there is strong appetite from members for their organisation to implement formal mentoring. Some 37% of AAT support the idea.

AAT CEO, Mark Farrar, said: A company is only ever as good as the sum of its parts which is why employers should be seeking to implement effective mentoring schemes that help to invest in staff and impact on their career pathways.
