Abstract

Purpose - Most employee attitudes and behaviors are determined by both personal and situational characteristics. Studies on person-organization fit (POF), which is defined as the congruence between individual and organizational values, also support this assumption. Employees who perceive high POF have high positive work attitudes and low intention to leave. However, this study assumes that the relationship between perceived POF and work attitudes may be different with respect to employees' status and aims to investigate how perceived POF may differ in consequences among blue-collar and white-collar employees.
