Values Congruence and Organisational Commitment: P—O Fit in Higher Education Institutions [Book Review]
Graduate studies at Western
Journal of Academic Ethics 7 (4):297-314 (2009)
|Abstract||This study examines business students’ individual values and their perception of their university’s values and the relationship between these values and affective organisational commitment. Findings indicate that both groups of business students rated their personal values as consistent with the rankings of the major pan—cultural values with strong ethical orientation and self—development and learning values. In both educational institutions organisational vision values and individual conservatism values predicted affective commitment. Findings also indicate statistically significant differences between the students’ personal values and their perception of their university’s values, suggesting a degree of lack of P—O fit between the students’ values and their university’s values|
