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.
