Person-Organization Fit and the Attitude of Medical Staff: Professionalism and Work Attitude in a Chinese Hospital
The economy of China has been transformed from a planned economy to an open market system as a result of the country’s recent economic reform. In the past, employees of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) were always able to rely upon the so-called ‘iron rice bowl’, providing them with life-time job security and associated benefits, such as health insurance, retirement plans and accommodation.
However, the Communist Party has historically emphasized equalitarianism among all workers and the social status of a physician can be modified in this circumstance. Therefore, it is important to find out how professional staffs such as physicians respond to and perceive the way their organizations operate, compared to administrative staff, under this context.
