Organisational socialisation is the process by which newcomers transform from being an 'outsider' of an organisation into an effective 'insider' through learning the necessary knowledge, skills, abilities, and behaviours required for a new role. The research presented in this thesis offers self-determination theory as a new and meaningful lens to understand newcomer adjustment through a focus on psychological need satisfaction—a prerequisite for high quality motivation, enhanced performance, and well-being in employees. Furthermore, this dissertation offers a theoretical framework and measurement for organisational socialisation tactics which will support future endeavours in socialisation research and practice.
