Causes of under-performance
A common cause of employee's under-performance is poor person-job-fit.
"Talent is mainly personality in the right place, which explains why most people will do better in some jobs, cultures, and contexts than in others.
Even when organizations evaluate the candidate correctly, they are often not as good at evaluating the role, and particularly their own culture. Organizational psychologists call this“person-job-fit,” and it is measured by quantifying the degree of alignment between a person’s attitudes, values, abilities, and dispositions on the one hand, and the characteristics of the job, role, and organization on the other."
