The purpose of this study is to determine the extent to which newcomers within Thai organization find each of several categories of organizationally-relevant information adequacy during the process of organizational assimilation. Participants in the study were 247 “new” employees at Bangkok Bank. Bangkok Bank considers employees whose length of stay with the bank has been less than 18 months as new employees. Questionnaires were administered to all of the Bank’s new employees to obtain the data for this study. A t-test was used to analyze the data. The data were summed and coded by using Statistical Package for Social Science. In all probability, the explanation for this finding rests the fact that all newcomers go through a training prior to starting their jobs. Thus, all newcomers receive the same basic information concerning the organizations as well as a measure of job-relevant information. Banking operations tend to be routine and systematic. Employees know their duties very well. So, with a standard orientation provided, all relatively new employees might very well find themselves on an equal footing. Information does not vary as a function of previous work experience.
