Popular trends of fast track programs raise attention recently. The concept of fast track programs are originally adopted in foreign invested companies and widely used in financial industries, and people in programs are called high flyers, they play as key roles in programs. One of the main advantages of fast track programs is helping organization to cultivate future managers within rather short time. It costs considerably to nurture these high flyers; however, high turnover rate remains the problem of the programs. It is common to find that fast track programs are often equipped with mentoring systems; hence, this study argues that whether mentoring system can act a key factor to retain these talents, because mentoring relationship is regarded to influence the development of high flyers in the future.
The current study involves 115 high flyers as the research sample. Based on regression analysis, the result indicates that their perceived mentorship quality is positively related to intention to stay. Further, career satisfaction is found to mediate the relationship between perceived mentorship quality and intention to stay. High flyers’ intention to stay is strongly influenced by how they sense their career satisfaction from mentorship quality. Besides, the current study also examines high flyers’ self-efficacy as moderator between perceived mentoring quality and career satisfaction; however, no significant result indicates the moderating effect on this relationship.
