Enhancing possibilities for the socialization process of new employees in Lithuanian preschools

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The concept of the process of employee socialization, factors involved and separate stages of this process, i.e. employment, adaptation and integration are analyzed in the article. The importance of this process is justified for both the organization and the employee. The article presents an analysis of characteristics of the socialization process of new employees in Lithuanian preschools. The structured survey method was carried out using a confidential survey for gathering data for the empirical study. Recommendations for organizing the process of socialization are proposed based on results of the study. Lithuania’s accession to the European Union (EU) sped up the country’s involvement in global processes, however, the negative consequences of economic, social and demographic after-effects, i.e. emigration of young, promising pedagogues, thus an older age average of employees, which in turn poses non-positive challenges to organizers and implementers of education, remain topical to this day (Stoner et al., 2001). The article presents a discussion on theoretical and practical aspects of the socialization process of employees in Lithuania’s preschool educational system. Most often, Lithuanian authors (Bakanauskiene, 2002; Ciutiene, 2006; Steponaviciute, 2004) discuss issues of employee socialization in the context of separate stages of this process. Employee socialization as an integral process has been insufficiently studied to this day.
