The mechanism of newcomer organizational socialization process from perspective of relationship resource

With the quickening flow of the labor market, more and more newcomers are experiencing the social adjustment process when they entry into the workplace. In order to make the transition from the organizational outsiders to the insiders successfully and be accepted by the member of organization to achieve high-quality performance, they usually need to have positive relationships with insiders. Based on relationship resource perspective, this project will study the antecedent variables of the construction of insider relationship (ex:superiors, and colleagues relationship), and how this relationship influences newcomers distal socialization outcomes through proximal variables. First, this study tries to explore the influences of team climate (team interpersonal climate, and team goal orientation) on the construction of newcomer relationship; focusing on the moderating effect of newcomers' social self-efficacy. Second, to explore the impact of supervisor performance expectations on the construction of newcomer relationship; focusing on moderating effect of power distance orientation and newcomers' emotional intelligence. Finally, this study will analyze the mediating effect of social integration and information outcomes adequacy in the relationship between the construction of relationship and socialization outcomes (organizational identification, task performance, and subjective well-being). This research can not only improve newcomer socialization theory but also provide practical strategies and methods for enterprises to intervene newcomers' socialization process.
