Scopo del lavoro è discutere quali processi generativi si possano attivare nella relazione tra senior e junior nei contesti di lavoro, durante il momento critico della socializzazione organizzativa dei più giovani. Il framework teorico utilizzato rimanda al costrutto di generatività, così come definito da Bradley e Marcia (1998) e da Cigoli e Scabini (2006). Viene presentato uno studio qualitativo condotto mediante interviste narrative a 24 professionisti senior e 24 junior. Le narrazioni raccolte mostrano differenti tipologie di relazione tra senior e junior, riconducibili a diverse forme di generatività. Tali risultati consentono di discutere il rapporto tra generatività e socializzazione organizzativa, e di riflettere su quale contributo possano dare i lavoratori senior alla socializzazione organizzativa dei più giovani.
