Abstract
Newcomers organizational socialization has been emphasized as the
most critical period of employment, because of the high number of
redundancies among new employees. While striving for an
understanding of this socialization process, researcher within the field
has identified different tactics that organizations tend to use in order
to form newcomers behavior and attitudes. Meanwhile, it has also
been argued that there is need for a more integrated perspective,
focusing on the social and cultural aspects of the socialization process.
This is where present study has taken its starting point, arguing that
cultural and social aspects of the process can be understood trough
newcomers own experiences of their reality.

Newcomers organizational socialization has been emphasized as the
most critical period of employment, because of the high number of
redundancies among new employees. While striving for an
understanding of this socialization process, researcher within the field
has identified different tactics that organizations tend to use in order
to form newcomers behavior and attitudes. Meanwhile, it has also
been argued that there is need for a more integrated perspective,
focusing on the social and cultural aspects of the socialization process.
This is where present study has taken its starting point, arguing that
cultural and social aspects of the process can be understood trough
newcomers own experiences of their reality.
Present thesis has been conducted in collaboration with an
international IT-company and the results are based on 10 qualitative
interviews. The purpose of the study has been to investigate how the
organizational socialization tactics also might affect how newcomers
internalize the companys social and cultural reality.
The result implies that tactics for organizational socialization do have
an affect on the respondents internalization of the companys social
and cultural reality. When trying to make sense of the socialization
tactics, the respondents have constructed an image of a company that
is hierarchical and process oriented, but at the same time promotes
development and individual responsibility. The results show that the
tactics, traditionally categorized into opposites, also occur in
constellations and integrate with each other. This integration is what
has led to the respondents partially fragmented descriptions of the
companys social and cultural reality. (Less)
