Linking the Fits, Fitting the Links: Connecting Different Types of PO Fit to Attitudinal Outcomes
Leung, Aegean; Chaturvedi, Sankalp
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v79 n2 p391-402 Oct 2011
In this paper we explore the linkages among various types of person-organization (PO) fit and their effects on employee attitudinal outcomes. We propose and test a conceptual model which links various types of fits--objective fit, perceived fit and subjective fit--in a hierarchical order of cognitive information processing and relate them to employee organizational commitment and job satisfaction. By unveiling how the different types of fit relate to each other in influencing individual outcomes, we address some of the theoretical and methodological concerns in the use of different methods in measuring PO fit. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
