Assessing the work-environment fit for accountants: implications for the international talent shortage
A growing and global 'talent crunch' currently exists and is expected to grow 'more acute and more widespread' over the next ten years, affecting global development throughout the world. This 'talent shortage' has already affected the accounting profession as it is listed among the top ten jobs experiencing difficulty recruiting. Prior research in the management discipline indicates a potential tool in enhancing employee recruitment, satisfaction and retention: the perceived 'fit' between an individual and the work environment. This research examines the relevance of work-environment fit in the accounting industry, using the USA as an illustrative example. This study examines the importance of fit with one's work environment to the job satisfaction of accountants using Moos' Work Environment Scale. Results indicate that fit on the dimensions of goal orientation and systems maintenance is significantly related to the job satisfaction of accountants.
