Organizational Socialization Tactics: A Longitudinal Analysis of Links to Newcomers' Commitment and Role Orientation
Preview not available

Abstract

In this replication and extension of an earlier study, we found that newcomers' organizational socialization experiences were negatively related to role innovation after they had been on their jobs 6 and 12 months and positively related to organizational commitment after 6 months. Role innovation and commitment were negatively correlated at 6 months. Results suggest that organizations should be able to tailor newcomers' socialization experiences to foster a desired commitment-role orientation profile.
