Abstract

This study examined the dynamics of adjustment mechanisms on recruits in industrial organizations in Nigeria. The purpose of the study is to present a theoretical and statistical analysis of different types and processes of recruit‘s adjustments. The general objective is therefore to clarify the effect of adjustment mechanisms on recruits in industrial organizations in Nigeria. Survey research design was adopted to meet the objective. Questionnaire was used as a means of data collection. The total population of this study was 160 employees which represents the total workforce of three selected organizations in Abuja. The distribution of the population is as follows: National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) 95 (59.37%) employees, Abuja Graduate School (AGS) 35 (21.87%) employees and Trans Nationwide Express (TRANEX) 30 (18.75%) employees respectively and the units of analysis were the recruits. Recruits here mean staff who have spent between one to four years in different organizations. The onboarding theory was adopted and its relevance to this study was also justified to understand what motivates recruits. Quantitative analysis was chosen because it is one of the most suitable methods of data analysis for expressing in detail, the nature and feature of any given variable to avoid reader‘s bias. Findings of this study revealed, among others, that induction and good interpersonal relationship have significant impact on adjustment. It was concluded that there is need for individuals who are employed to get along in the organization so as to keep their job. Amongst the recommendations was that there is need for workplace restructuring in the organization to help both the workers and the organization realize their full potentials and goals.

Key Words: Adjustment, Mechanism, Organization, Employee and Recruits.
