Today, employees are required to be more flexible and able to quickly adapt on the job than ever before, due to an unpredictable and highly instable work environment. To further investigate the topic of adaptive performance, and its effects on individuals at work, the current study utilized an online survey to gather information about participants’ Individual Adaptability, their Adaptive Performance on the job, and their level of Job Satisfaction. Responses from 324 participants were utilized in a correlational and regression design.
The findings of this study suggest that Individual Adaptability and Adaptive Performance on the job (i.e. how well they perform in work situations requiring Adaptive Performance) are related. Findings also suggest that certain dimensions of Adaptive Performance can predict Job Satisfaction when there is a good fit between a person’s Individual Adaptability and the Adaptive Performance Requirements on the job.
