Why is it important?

Based on empirical findings, this paper contributes to the literature on organisational socialisation by providing evidence of the damaging effects of the length of organisational tenure on psychological attachment to the company (in the form of commitment and identification). Additionally, tenure is the shaping factor of employee perception of organisational culture.


Demographics are available in any HR software, as a result, it is not difficult to get these data. Based on the article’s findings, HR practitioners can manage employee retention and engagement by creating various practices for different demographic groups (gender, generations, and organizational tenure).
