This paper looks at the issue of value congruence as being a key driver of fit among persons and the organizations they work for in the context of construction industry in Malaysia. In construction industry many parties have been identified as stakeholders and these abundant and diverse stakeholders do need to be managed based on this fact that, success in construction projects is significantly dependent on meeting the needs of project stakeholders. According to this issue in the construction industry, the importance of embracing Personal-Organizational fit (P-O fit) which mostly emphasizes on values and known as value congruence is revealed, due to its function for creating compatibility between individual values and organizational values. Recently, the concept of value congruence has attracted many scholars, especially in the field of Organizational Behaviour (OB). Although the literature of OB regarding value congruence indicates a disarray according to several theories and methodologies but affirms the positive outcomes of this construct on some individual variables related to work environment like; organizational commitment, job satisfaction and organizational identification. The aim of the current paper is to critically review and conceptualization of P-O fit, value and value congruence concepts toward the construction industry, specifically in Malaysia.
