MEDIA REVIEWS
If this volume is an indication of the next generation of fit research, then we?re in for an exciting ride! The authors represent a wide variety of viewpoints on fit, and provide relevant suggestions on how research in this domain can continue to thrive.?Dan Cable, Professor of Organisational Behaviour, London Business School This book represents a fine compendium of thinking about what fit is, the motivations of people to seek it, the antecedents of achieving it, and the consequences of having?and not having it?at work. The consequences, indeed, extend to performance of the individual and the organizations in which people work. The chapters offer a broad range of insights into the fit process and contain many useful suggestions for?indeed pleas for?future research efforts on this important psychological phenomenon.?Benjamin Schneider, Senior Research Fellow, CEB Valtera, Professor Emeritus, University of Maryland The idea of ?fit? is central to every aspect of every employees? worklife. An employee who says to her or himself, ?I just don?t fit in here? is expressing a view that s/he would prefer to be somewhere else. In other words, working in an organization that does not fit can be like wearing a shoe size that does not fit; it?s great to get out of. In this situation, it is most pleasing to see publication of a volume that offers such a wide range of different views on the topic of fit. An especial strength of the volume is that it is not restricted to one epistemological view, thus enabling a broader coverage of the field than has been the case in the literature to date. Thus, while readers might not agree with the views of one particular chapter?s authors, there is sure to be at least one other model or perspective with which they will feel comfortable. As such, and as is reflected in the title, this is a volume for the future of research in this field. I have little doubt that it will serve to generate a surge of interest in the concept and importance of fit in organizational research.?Neal Ashkenasy, Professor of Management at the University of Queensland and the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Organizational Behavior. This book pushes the boundaries of research and thinking research about fit in organizations. Throughout the chapters, the authors tackle a broad array of underexplored topics, and in doing so, provide new understanding about the process of how people fit into organizations. Anyone interested in fit will want to read this book.?Cheri Ostroff, full professor of industrial/organizational psychology, University of Maryland
