Impacts of CoP on Organizational Socialization in the Early Career
Chang, Joohee; Chang, Wonsup; Jacobs, Ronald L.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Research Conference in the Americas (Panama City, FL, Feb 20-24, 2008)
This paper focuses on the relationship between participation in communities of practice (CoP) and outcomes of organizational socialization (learning and adjustment) early in the career. Results from responses of employees in a Korean IT company show that participation in CoP is more strongly related to adjustment (job satisfaction, organizational commitment, intention to remain) than to learning (sense of belonging to organization, role comprehension) when characteristics of CoP and degree of participation are controlled. (Contains 1 figure and 5 tables.)
