Socialization

Socialization is a process that helps new employees learn the organization’s way of doing things.

 For instance, new employees at Starbucks stores go through 24 hours of intensive training that helps turn them into brewing consultants (baristas). They learn company philosophy, company jargon, and how to assist customers with decisions about beans, grind, and espresso machines.


Socialization is the process whereby an individual becomes a social being. Although it is a lifetime process it is particularly important in childhood when society is represented by (and through) a child’s parents and the rest of his family.
