As a result of employees not being well fitted to the kind of jobs they do, this study was necessitated to identify how job embeddedness affects employee performance in selected commercial banks in Anambra State. Correlation Survey Research Design was employed for the study. The population of the study was 404 and sample size was 197 determined using Krejcie and Morgan formula. Multiple Regression analysis was adopted in analyzing the data. The findings of the study revealed that a 94% variation in employee satisfaction was explained by changes in job fit. The study concluded that job embeddedness plays a crucial role in determining the performance of employees in the organization which will also have an impact on the organizations in general. It was therefore recommended among other things that recruitment requirements should not just be focused on the academic qualification of prospective employees but also look at their interest and discipline so as to hire employees that are fitted to the organization.

Keywords: Job Embeddedness, Employee Performance, Job Fit and Employee Satisfaction.
