  • Abstract In order to enhance newcomers' retention and performance, the present study explored the moderating roles of mentoring and newcomers' personality (conscientiousness and emotional stability) on the relationships between newcomers' perceived person-job fit, (P-J fit) person-organization fit (P-O fit) and their task performance and turnover intentions. The data was collected from newcomers who have passed probation with their organizational tenure less than one year. In total, 198 usable questionnaires were collected from 20 firms in Taiwan. The present study applied the hierarchical regression analysis to test our hypotheses. The results showed that: (1) when mentoring relationship is low, the positive relationship between newcomer P-J fit and task performance is strengthened; (2) when conscientiousness and emotional stability are high, the negative relationship between newcomers P-O fit and turnover intentions is strengthened; (3) the interaction between newcomer P-J fit and P-O fit is positively related to task performance.
    Based on our findings, we proposed several practical implications as below: (1) organizations should pay attention to newcomers’ P-J, P-O fit, and their socialization processes; (2) using selection tools to hire newcomers with high conscientiousness and emotional stability; (3) organizations should apply different socialization practice for newcomers with different attributes.
