Supervisors' behavior during new employees' socialization: Scale development
This study developed a 16-item scale to measure specifically the construct of Intended Socialization Behavior of the supervisor during new employees' socialization. Data were collected from 178 subjects representing six midwestern organizations. The organizations ranged in size from 100 to 1,001+ employees and represented multiple industries. The subjects included 74 subordinates (with less than 1 year tenure at the organizations) and 93 supervisors. Both the subordinate and the supervisor groups were predominantly male, and the subordinate group was primarily younger than the supervisor group.
