Abstract

Employees who experience great level of person-job (P-J) fit and person-organization (P-O) fit may actively engage in their jobs and perform organizational citizenship behaviors at organization (OCB-O)and individual (OCB-I ) level. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of individual perceived P-J and P-O fit and work engagement (i.e., job satisfaction, job involvement and organizational commitment) on OCB-I and OCB-O. Two hundred and fifty responses from food-service employees in Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) are targeted for final data collection. Descriptive statistics and structural equation modeling will be employed to report participants’ demographic characteristics and to examine the relationships among constructs. Findings will help managers recognize the importance of P-J and P-O fit and work attitude in the development of employees’ pro-socialization behaviors.
