PurposeThe purpose of this paper is to shed light on the usefulness of the mentoring dimensions and to test and validate the mentoring functions questionnaire (MFQ) among Tunisian successors.Design/methodology/approachTo test and validate the MFQ among Tunisian successors, this study used a sample of 111 Tunisian successors, adopted the Churchill’s paradigm and followed the structural equation modeling.FindingsThis study confirms the importance of both vocational and psychological support but does not take into consideration the succession context.Originality/valueMentoring programs concern essentially employees and help them develop and grow both vocationally and personally. Successors, however, although they do face some hardships throughout their careers, they are outside the focus of attention. Thus, this study contributes to the mentoring literature by exploring the usefulness of the mentoring dimensions and by using the mentoring functions.
