Abstract: How newcomers interact with their experienced colleagues has been thought to affect their socialization and performance. In a field study of 169 new employees, team leaders provided measures of values and newcomers rated their relationships and attitudes. Structural equation analysis results suggest that relationships and open discussion values promote socialization by developing cooperative goals and integrative interaction. Results were tentatively interpreted as suggesting that values affect socialization by altering newcomer goal interdependence and interaction with experienced team members. By embracing the values of relationships and open discussion, supplemented with cooperative goals and integrative interaction, teams can more effectively socialize newcomers.
