Graduate Research Paper (UNI Access Only)
When an employee joins an organization, they can typically expect to experience the socialization process within their first year of employment. Now more than ever, companies are hiring from within to retain their core employees and maintain a strong culture, leading to employees transitioning between departments or geographic locations. However, it is unclear whether employees are experiencing socialization following those organizational transitions, which could impact their job satisfaction and organizations’ employee retention rates. This qualitative study interviewed ten individuals regarding their recent organizational transition, their socialization after their transition, and their job satisfaction before and after their transition. The goal of this study is to determine how socialization is occurring following an organizational transition, and what the impact of that re-socialization is on employee job satisfaction.
