Person-environment (P-E) fit has long been a central area of research in career management and organizational management. Despite numerous empirical studies, P-E fit research has faced criticism for several reasons: (a) Vague conceptualization and operationalization, which can obscure the meaning of P-E fit and its interactions with other constructs; (b) neglect of emerging P-E fit issues in the rapidly evolving career landscape; (c) lack of interdisciplinary integration of research findings and theoretical perspectives. In this presentation, the speaker will share collaborative projects aimed at addressing these pressing concerns and propose an agenda for future exploration. Leveraging an interdisciplinary approach, the speaker will: (a) Share co-authored papers highlighting the multifaceted effects of P-E misfit on employee performance; (b) assess the potential of the Identity-Capability-Reward (ICR) and cybernetic development models to reconceptualize P-E fit within the context of a boundaryless career; (3) Share recent findings from a Journal of Applied Psychology (JAP) paper that applies a boundaryless career perspective to challenge traditional theories of mentoring and newcomer retention.
