Organisational Learning of New Hires In The New Zealand Workplace
Given a large number of international graduates transitioned from study to workplace in New Zealand and the
increasing importance of how organisational learning contributes to the capability of learning of contemporary organisations,
this paper investigates the learning experience of New Zealand international graduates as new hires in the New Zealand
workplace. Based on SECI model suggested by Nonaka & Konno, a pilot study was conducted to exploredifferent types of
knowledge that were acquired by the new hires, including what triggered the transfer of these knowledge in a workplace, and
how the knowledge were transferred through socialisation, externalisation, combination, and internalisation stages at
individual, group, and organisational levels. Suggestions for future research were presented at the later section of the paper.
