Lacking a systematic classification, the understanding of proactive socialization seems fragmented. Drawing on self-determination theory, I categorize seven common proactive socialization tactics into three categories: task-related, social-related, and cognition-related tactics and examine the nomological network of this categorization. Specifically, I examine the linkages between task-related tactics and psychological empowerment, social-related tactics and affective commitment, as well as cognition-related tactics and occupational self-efficacy. Furthermore, the mediating role of three types of basic need satisfaction and the moderated mediating influence of organizational socialization tactics are also examined. Using online questionnaire survey at two time points, data were collected from full-time employees whose organizational tenure was less than nine months. A total of 181 observations were used for hypothesis testing. Results provide support for the construct validity of the proactive socialization tactics categorization. Furthermore, the results provide evidence for nomological network of this categorization. Specifically, social-related tactics were positively related to affective commitment, task-related tactics were positively associated with psychological empowerment through autonomy need satisfaction, whereas cognition-related tactics were positively associated with occupational self-efficacy through competence need satisfaction. Moreover, the mediating effect of task-related tactics and psychological empowerment through autonomy need satisfaction was moderated by organizational socialization tactics. The theoretical and practical implications of the study findings are discussed.
