The seeming mis-match between the needs, goals and aspirations of employees and what the organizations have to offer necessitated this study. The broad objective of the study was to examine the type of relationship that exists between Person Job Fit (PJF) and Employee Performance in Selected Commercial Banks in Anambra State. The study adopted a survey research design. The population of the study was 1063 and sample size was 282 determined using Krejcie and Morgan (1970) formula. Data was collected using questionnaire and was analyzed with the aid Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation Co-efficient. The hypothesis was tested at 5% level of significance.  The result revealed that there is a statistically significant positive correlation existing between Needs-Supplies Fit and employee commitment (r= .964, p-value < 0.05). It was therefore concluded that how aligned and fitted the employee’s needs and aspirations are to what they obtain from the organization greatly influence the commitment level of the employees. It was thus recommended that the studied organizations should not just focus on what the employees have to offer while recruiting, that they should also be concerned with the interest of the employees and that the management of the focused firms should not only evaluate the performance of the employees but from time to time also evaluate the performance of the organization in terms of how they have met the needs of the employee so as to engender loyalty and engagement.
