Rooted in the similarity-attraction-attrition
paradigm, Cable and Judge’s framework has been one of the leading models in
explaining Person-Organization fit. It associates perceived value congruence
with employee work attitudes pre and post their entry. This study extends the
model and findings by looking at the specific, underlying value dimensions that
cause these effects. Drawing on a sample of 800 Indonesian jobseekers, I
applied polynomial regression to test the model. Results showed that congruence
between personal and organizational social responsibility value was the
strongest and most consistent dimension predicting employee job satisfaction
and organizational commitment.
