How person-organisation fit impacts turnover intentions

Research Briefing

Keywords: person-organisation fit, work engagement, turnover intention, intention to leave

Relatively high levels of employee turnover remain a concern for many organisations, largely due to the negative impact this has on both organisational effectiveness, organisational outcomes and cost. A number of recent studies have shown that voluntary turnover in organisations can be a significant hindrance to organisational performance. A number of studies from 2016 and 2017 showed that somewhere around 10% to 34% of employees are actively looking to change their jobs and change their employer. This not only represents a significant proportion of employees, it also represents a significant body of knowledge and expertise exiting organisations around the world.
