dc.description.abstractSubsequent to adjusting to a new organisation through learning, new employees, or newcomers, develop a perception of their own person-organisation fit, that is, of how well their values and the values of the organisation match. Higher person-organisation fit has been linked with a number of benefits for newcomers and organisations, including higher job satisfaction, greater career prospects, and lower intent to quit. The purpose of this study is to extend this prior research to investigate whether newcomers’ perceptions of person-organisation fit also mediate the relationship between newcomer learning and distal outcomes of newcomer adjustment, namely job satisfaction, future prospects, and intent to quit. Based on an archival data sample (N = 550), this study’s findings show support for the mediating role of person-organisation fit in the relationship between newcomer learning and distal outcomes of newcomer adjustment (i.e., job satisfaction, future prospects, and intent to quit). Theoretical and practical implications of these findings are discussed.en_NZ
