This study examines the competitive work environment- human capital interplay, and the role of person-organization fit in this relationship. The questionnaires were distributed among employees of the ten employers of the choice brands. The analysis of the proposed model is done based on responses collected from 735 respondents. The data analysis was done by employing structural equation modeling and the Hayes process method. The results exhibit that human capital and person-organization fit positively impact the competitive work environment. The results also demonstrate that person-organization fit plays a significant moderating role in strengthening the relationship between human capital and a competitive work environment. This study proposed new dimensions and a re-arrangement of indicators of the competitive work environment. The study's uniqueness lies in the combination of human capital and person-organization fit for predicting the competitive work environment. Implications of the study are discussed, and some avenues for future research are presented.
