Abstract

The objective of this study was to empirically examine through an industry survey, the impact of socialisation on organisational creativity. The results of the study show a strong and significant positive relationship between informal as well as organised forms of socialisation and creativity. The results also indicate that informal socialisation had a stronger positive effect on creativity than organised socialisation. These findings confirm the value of socialisation in innovative organisations, and suggest the need for strategies that would provide for its encouragement.
