careerstage model of socialization
The career stage model of socialization begins with anticipatory socialization. At this stage, recruitment using realistic job previews, selection and placement using realistic career paths, and the advancement of organizational information begins the process of socialization. In the accommodation stage, the employee begins to see the organization for what it is; he establishes new interpersonal relationships with coworkers and supervisors (social), learns the tasks of the job (skills training) clarifying his role in the organization (challenging work assignments) and evaluating progress toward satisfying job demands (organizational feedback). The final stage, role management, the employee learns how to manage the conflict between work, home, and between work groups (counseling is provided and flexible work scheduling).
