Six licensed commercial banks and four insurance companies representing private and public sectors, located in Colombo district were selected randomly to collect primary data. As this is a cross sectional explanatory research in nature, standard questionnaire was used to collect primary data incorporating survey technique. Descriptive statistics, spearmen correlation coefficient and liner regression were used to analyze data and make conclusions. Findings revealed that there is a significant impact of person organization fit on organizational commitment in Sri Lankan banking and insurance industries.
