Journal of Workplace Learning, v22 n5 p306-318 2010
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to investigate how information literacy can enhance job performance in the workplace setting. Design/methodology/approach: Building on extant research, an integrated framework in which information literacy is related to person-job fit which in turn influences job performance is proposed. A survey questionnaire was administered to a convenience sample of 427 current employees in financial institutions in Taiwan. Structural equation modeling was used to test the hypotheses. Findings: Results indicate that there is a positive relationship between dimensions of traditional literacy and computer literacy toward person-job fit. In addition person-job fit is an effective predictor of job performance. Finally person-job fit partially mediates the relationship between information literacy and job performance. Originality/value: This study highlights the importance of information literacy when predicting job performance. Managers could benefit by understanding the antecedents of person-job fit in a practical sense for organizations' favorable outcomes. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
