Without job fit, how can employees ever experience happiness and success in their work? Everyone deserves the opportunity to work to achieve their full and highest potential.
What is Job Fit?
It’s the degree of congruence between an individual’s strengths, needs, and wants in a particular job, and work environment. When interests align, the employee and the organization experience a good job fit. Based on identifying innate personality traits, abilities, and behaviors, assessing for job fit determines if a person CAN do a job, HOW they will do a job, and if they will ENJOY the position. Every individual is motivated and driven by different influences. Job fit outlines the unique job-related qualities that make a person productive.
Did you know that employees who are well matched to their jobs are 2.5 times more productive on the job? Studies show that proper job fit improves engagement and job satisfaction, resulting in increased productivity, while negative factors such as job-related stress, tension, workplace conflict, and costly employee turnover diminish.
Organizations with a philosophy of matching people to jobs have a competitive advantage over their competition. Having followed 360,000 people through their careers during a period of 20 years, a major study published by Harvard Business Review demonstrated that key ingredient in retaining people is ensuring that they are matched to their jobs in terms of their abilities, interests, and personalities.
The study found that when you put people in jobs where the demands of the job matched their own abilities, where the stimulation offered by the job matched their particular interests, and where the cultural demands of the position matched their personalities, staff turnover decreased dramatically, and productivity increased drastically.
