CH. 3

In Chapter three it covers what organizational culture is and how it benefits a company’s identity. In this chapter I was very interested in the three-phase model of organizational socialization. This model was created by Feldman, he developed this to judge how well an individual has been socialized. The first phase, anticipatory socialization, is described as information people have learned about different professions before they actually join an organization. The second phase, encounter, is described as an employee’s learning stage of what the organization is really like. The third phase, change and acquisition, is when the employee masters important tasks and roles in their work environment. In this phase employees feel confident in themselves and their roles. This model presents specific behavioral outcomes. These phases make this socialization process achieve employee expectation and satisfaction
