Abstract

Data obtained from subordinate-supervisor dyads (N ¼ 314) of a large manufacturing company in South Korea were used to test a moderated mediation model of the processes linking person-organization (P-O) fit and employee work attitudes and behaviors. The results revealed that the influence of P-O fit on work attitudes and behaviors was indirect through perceived social exchange with organization. In addition, the relationship between P-O fit and perceived social exchange with organization was moderated by leader-member exchange (LMX) quality. Specifically, a high-quality LMX enhanced the positive effects of P-O fit on perceived social exchange with organization.

Keywords: job performance; job satisfaction; leader–member exchange; organizationally directed citizenship behavior; person–organization fit; social exchange with organization
