Exploring Organisational Fit and Misfit : Proceedings of the 4th Global e-Conference on Fit
For previous Fit e-Conferences, we have presented various aspects of our research on how person-environment (PE) fit and misfit compare. We have argued that because so little is known about how individuals experience fit and misfit at work, qualitative, exploratory research was called for (Talbot & Billsberry, 2007; 2008). Last year, our e-conference contribution detailed how using causal mapping in PE fit research would enable individuals’ experiences of fit and misfit to be captured and, as well as generating rich idiographic data, would further be amenable to nomothetic analysis (Talbot, Ambrosini & Billsberry, 2009). This paper briefly reviews why we set out to research employees’ fit and misfit perceptions, how we used causal mapping and discusses the main findings from our research.
