Abstract

Background: Human capital is a vital component in the productivity of any organisation, and many times companies invest time and other resources in training and developing their employees. The dynamics of perceived person-environment fit (P-E Fit), on organisational citizenship behaviours (OCB), would be apt in exemplifying how organisations can maximise on their human resource capabilities. Scholars have encouraged more studies applying the P-E Fit perspective to improve social integration in various contexts, particularly in non-Western countries. Aims: To investigate the relationship between Person-Environment Fit (P-E Fit) on Organisational Citizenship Behaviour (OCB) in a South African private media company. Method: A descriptive quantitative research design was conducted. This is a cross-sectional study conducted once and reveals a snapshot of one point in time to explore P-E Fit on OCB using questionnaires. From the population of 250 employees in the media organisation, a total 87 participants consented to the survey; however, only 60 were usable. This represents a response rate of 39%. Results: Findings point to the existence of a relationship between P-E Fit and OCB, and that P-E Fit improves the likelihood of employees exhibiting OCB’s. Conclusion: This study elucidated to management and decision-makers, the need to be oriented towards the practices of human resources management most likely to have a positive impact on the OCB of employees
