Abstract and Keywords
While much of the previous research on organizational socialization has focused on how supervisors and coworkers influence the entry of new entrants into the firm, surprisingly little attention has been given to how the socialization of new employees influences insiders. This paper examines how the entry of newcomers (both new entrants into the workforce and experienced workers changing employers) influences insiders’ self-perceptions, how participating in the socialization process influences insiders’ attitudes toward their firms, and when insiders will be receptive to change attempts from new hires. The chapter concludes with directions for future research on mutual influence processes during organizational socialization.
