Person-Organization Values Congruence: No Support for Individual Differences as a Moderating Influence
This study extended the research into the person-organization fit (values congruency) phenomenon by investigating the impact of demographic factors, such as age, gender, ethnic background, organizational level, management position, length of service, and functional area, on work attitudes. Data from over 1600 professionals and management personnel from a large multinational manufacturing firm revealed that person-organization values congruency was directly related to positive work attitudes and that demographic factors did not moderate this relationship.
