Work involvement, intrinsic job motivation, person-organisation fit, perceived organisational support, co-worker support, job satisfaction, organisational commitment, transformational leadership and affective well-being were examined amongst a cohort of 38 employees in a “not-for-profit” organisation in order to model the relationships between person, job and organisational level variables. Regression analyses revealed that person-organisation fit successfully predicted transformational leadership and that perceived organisational support successfully predicted job satisfaction. Results also revealed differing profiles for males and females,  and parents and non-parents across the variables measured. The results are analysed in the context of positive psychology and how best to operationalise well-being.
