Abstract

The purpose of this thesis is to conduct an empirical research study of academicians in Malaysian higher education institutions. The first objective is to examine the relationships between person-organization fit (P-O Fit), psychological need satisfaction (PNS), employee attitudes and employee outcomes in higher education institutions in Malaysia. The second objective is to investigate the mediating effects of PNS on the relationships between P-O Fit and employee attitudes. The third objective revolves around examining the mediating effects of employee attitudes on the relationship between P-O Fit and employee outcomes. The final objective is to investigate the mediating effects of employee attitudes on the relationships between PNS and employee outcomes.

The study was conducted based on personally administered questionnaires. Data obtained from 295 academicians and their supervisors through multi-source ratings have been collected, which represents 53% response rate. The PLS-SEM used in this study allowed the analysis of the simultaneous method with mediation relationships. The results of the present study found that there were positive relationships between P-O Fit and PNS and affective OC, PNS and employee attitudes and outcomes, and continuous OC and in-role performance. Moreover, PNS also mediated the relationship between P-O Fit and employee attitudes. The current study concludes that continuous OC represents competitive mediation of the relationship between PNS and OCB. The implications of the study findings and directions for future research are discussed at the end of this study.
