Using empirical data from a Taiwanese realty company, this paper examines the effects of a fit-focused employee selection program in serving as a management control tool. Empirical results indicate that program-selected probationers show a higher level of goal congruence with the firm and better job performance than non-program-selected individuals. The results provide evidence that systematic selection may serve as a useful mechanism for finding better-fitting employees.
