In the last years, the research
on organizational socialization has focused on the study of the contents of the socialization,
having stressed that is fundamentally a learning process in which the employee adopts an
active role. Following the model of Taormina, we distinguish four domains of learning:
training, understanding, support of the co-workers and perspective of future. Many studies
have shown that the learning of the new workers is associated with a greater success in
the socialization. In this paper we set out to deepen in the empirical study of the relationships
among the domains and engagement. The sample is composed by 514 participants pertaining
to 22 organizations from different sectors of activity and size. Results indicate that the
domains training, understanding and perspective of future are positively related to
engagement, organizational socialization, positive psychology
