Violazione del contratto psicologico e socializzazione organizzativa: uno studio esplorativo - The relationship existing between Psychological Contract (PC) and Organizational Socialization (OS) has been studied only focusing the effect of the latter on the former. The aim is to highlight the importance of the reverse relation (the effect of PC on socialization) and to evaluate a first reference model. It is hypothesized that PC violations during socialization can impact on the adjustment strategies and that this relationship is moderated by personal variables (career anchors). The results concerning a longitudinal survey conducted on 78 employees of a firm, via questionnaire, show mixed support to the proposed model. Considering the obtained results it is suggested a development of studies on this issue and critical facets aimed to conduct future researches are presented.
