ABSTRACTThe objective of this study is to examine the possible effect of organizational socialization over the organizational commitment, which Mexican workers report to have. The sample (N = 207) was composed by employees aged between 20 and 60 years. Participants responded to the Organizational Socialization Inventory (OSI) and the Organizational Commitment Questionnaire (CCO). Among the results of this study, it was found that the four domains of organizational socialization positively correlated with affective and normative commitments; while only future prospects positively correlated with the commitment to continue. The multiple regression analysis showed that: a) the combination of future prospects, training, co-workers support and seniority are associated with affective commitment in workers; b) the combination of future prospects and co-workers support could facilitate the formation of normative commitment; finally, c) the future prospects and seniority associated with the commitment to continue. These and other results are discussed, stressing the importance of organizational socialization in affective and normative components of organizational commitment.
