Abstract
In this research, we examine the relationship between person-organization fit and organizational citizenship behavior via a study conducted at the University of Isfahan, Iran. The study was conducted using the field-descriptive method. Some research hypotheses about the relationship between each of the dimensions of person-organization fit and organization citizenship behaviour were developed and tested. These dimensions include workplace convergence, KSA (knowledge/skills/abilities) congruence, goals congruence, values congruence, and personality congruence, as dimensions of person-organization fit. Statistical population of the research included senior and junior nonacademic staff and managers at various levels in the University of Isfahan. A sample size of 132 employees was randomly selected from a total of 184 employees at the different levels using stratified random sampling method. The results revealed that there is a significant relationship between dimensions of person-organization fit and organizational citizenship behavior.

Keywords: Dimensions of person-organization fit, Hypotheses, normality test, factor analysis, structural equation modeling
