Abstract: A mentor-mentee relationship is a productive partnership on both sides. Mentoring has been repeatedly shown to positively influence several work-related outcomes in an organization. Therefore, the present study explored how mentoring, distributive justice, organizational commitment and career satisfaction are related to each other in order to reveal the mentoring effects both at individual and organizational levels. The study included a sample of 280 participants. SPSS 22.0 and AMOS 22.00 software programs were used to perform the statistical analyses of the study data. The results revealed that mentor role and distributional justice have positive effects on organizational commitment, while organizational commitment positively affects career satisfaction. There was also a positive covariance between mentor role and distributive justice. The findings are discussed from the perspective of both management literature and organizational implications.
