The Power of Storytelling on the Socialization of New Employees
Rubel, Colette; Davis, Elaine
CUPA-HR Journal, v54 n1 p17-21 Spr 2003
Formal orientation sessions are not the only way new employees get to know a college or university. In fact, the informal orientation they receive--from conversations with their co-workers, participation in the campus intranet and exposure to the institution's Web site--may be more influential in shaping their perceptions of the institution. What kinds of messages are employees giving your new hires? Is your intranet the source of toxic messages that new employees do not have the perspective to evaluate? New employee socialization processes may need altering.
