Achievement goal orientations refers to one’s dispositional or situational goal preferences in achievement situations. In this study, person-organization fit is defined as the congruence between individual’s goal orientation and that of their organizational climate. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between person-organization fit (person-climate fit) and organizational citizenship behavior, and whether the relationship mediated by affective commitment and moderated by individual goal orientation.
