AN EMPIRICAL STUDY ON THE IMPACT FROM THE ANTECEDENTS OF PERSON ORGANISATION FIT AFFECTING A WRIST WATCH MANUFACTURING UNIT IN TAMIL NADU

Abstract
This paper presents and tests a theoretical model of person-organization (P-O) fit and its antecedents among 243 employees working in a wrist watch manufacturing unit in Tamil Nadu. The interaction of the variables of P-O fit were analysed for the different demographics of employees who were grouped based on their gender, age, designation, educational qualification and work experience in the current organisation. Multiple linear regressions (MLR) were carried out for the different demographics of employees separately with all the antecedents together on the overall perception of P-O fit. Subsequently, to find the impact of the individual antecedents of P-O fit individually, simple linear regressions (SLR) were carried out and the results were compiled together. It was found that the impact of the antecedents on the P-O fit differs with the different employee demographics.
