Abstract

This paper intends to explore the interplay of person-environment fit (PEF) through its three
facets namely person-organization fit (POF), person-job fit (PJF) and person-group fit (PGF)
on work engagement (WEG) through organizational identification (OID) and organizational
commitement (OCM) of junior and senior resident doctors of eight multispecialty private
hospitals of Chandigarh tri-city (Chandigarh, Mohali and Panchkula). Data were collected
from 166 junior and senior resident doctors of eight multispecialty hospitals in Chandigarh
tri-city (Chandigarh, Mohali and Panchkula). Structured equation modelling (SEM) was used
to ascertain how PEF affects WEG through OCM and OID. Results reveal that POF, PJF and
PGF affects (OID and OCM) and OID mediates between the interplay between POF and
WEG. Results have significant implications for these multispecialty hospitals as while hiring
the assessment of these doctors is only done on the basis of whether or not they have what it
takes to perform that job and no effort is made to assess their compatibility with the work
environment as a result the attrition in such a setup is high. These hospitals may improve this
situation by creating a mechanism where compatibility of these doctors is measured
beforehand on all three facets of person-environment fit.
