Organizations in the 21st century are growing increasingly reliant on innovative input from employees, and injecting fresh blood is a common way to increase creative ideas. One measure of successful socialization is the development of voice behavior among new employees. Institutionalized socialization tactics assist new employees, whose voice is insufficiently encouraged, in adjusting to their work environment. In this time-lagged quantitative field study with 221 new generation employees in Beijing, China, we explored institutionalized socialization tactics and their influence on voice behavior, and newcomer adjustment as a form of voice behavior mediation. Results showed that institutionalized socialization tactics were highly correlated with newcomer adjustment and voice behavior. Our results have practical implications for the development of newcomer adjustment.
