This study tests theoretical associations between socialization practices and outcomes in an innovative organization LINC, the main engineering group of a computer firm. Seven pairs of socialization practices are used to classify data gathered during interviews of a representative sample of supervisors. The data reveal that LINC practices those socialization strategies that serve to reinforce its innovative orientation by selecting individuals who will fit on the basis of their creativity and individuality.
