About the Author

Michael Kramer is professor of communication at the University of Oklahoma.


"An intriguing and insightful book that provides deeper insights into complex subjects ... An inspiration and must-have book for scholars, students and practitioners in communication, organizational psychology, business and management disciplines."
Work, Employment and Society

"Kramer's book offers the rare combination of clarity, practical examples, and smooth flow with relevant, current research on organizational socialization. The reader will gain valuable insights into communication influences on individuals' developing vocational interests, adjusting to new organizational environments, and excelling in managerial positions, to name just a few takeaways."
Vernon Miller, Michigan State University

"This is the book I wished had been available when I was a student. Graduate students will find this an invaluable guide and the book will also be accessible to undergraduates as Kramer does such a good job of making theory understandable."
Karen Myers, University of California Santa Barbara "Kramer's book gives a very thorough summary and review of organizational socialization, explicating the various theories, models, and empirical studies on the subject. The cases threaded throughout each chapter bring the material to life and provide practical understanding of it. Kramer also sheds light on socialization contexts beyond the traditional 'new hire' situation ... as well as socialization in voluntary organizations. This book not only is useful for students, but is a 'must have' for organizational scholars in communication, management, and industrial psychology."
Patty Sias, Washington State University
