Abstract:

Using an Army sample, this research investigated the relationship between negative perceptions of assigned tasks and reenlistment intentions via person-organization fit Army fit and person-job fit MOS fit. Findings indicate that both types of fit are instrumental in explaining this relationship. Implications include highlighting the need for more research exploring the mediators of the relationship between negative perceptions of tasks and workplace outcomes, adding to this literature by exploring these relationships in a military context, and emphasizing the need for more targeted interventions to reduce negative perceptions of tasks.
