The Socialization of Newcomers into Organizations: Integrating Learning and Social Exchange Processes
Korte, Russell F.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Research Conference in The Americas of the Academy of Human Resource Development (Indianapolis, IN, Feb 28-Mar 4, 2007)
Traditional views of socialization focus primarily on the passive learning by the newcomer of the expectations of the organization. Theorizing and research on cognitive learning and social exchange indicate that the socialization process is vastly more complex. This paper views socialization through the lenses of cognitive learning and social exchange theories finding insights from both to improve the development of human resources through a broader conceptualization of organizational socialization.
