Telework and organizational attractiveness: a person-organization fit perspective

Telework and organizational attractiveness: a person-organization fit perspective

Mieke Heymans & Greet Van Hoye, Gedrag & Organisatie, Volume 18, August 2005, pp. 199-209

This study examined whether offering telework in recruitment advertisements can influence organizational attractiveness to potential applicants. From a person-organization fit perspective, we further examined whether the Big Five personality factors moderate the effect of telework on organizational attractiveness. To this end, 201 Belgian economy graduate students evaluated a recruitment advertisement that either mentioned the possibility of telework or not. The results showed that potential applicants generally were attracted more to organizations offering telework than to organizations that did not. Furthermore, we found that participants scoring high on altruism rated organizations offering telework as more attractive than participants scoring low on altruism.
