This week members received research briefings about:
There have been slightly more than 4,000 studies about job crafting since 2008 when the first studies appeared. However over 800 studies have been published about job crafting this year alone, which indicates a significant research and organisational interest in the topic.
So this week we sent our members three briefings of the most useful research papers that have been published in the last few months, to keep them right up-to-date
1. How to predict which employees are most likely to engage in job crafting
The first research briefing looks at a study which outlines:
- what job crafting is
- what the main outcomes are of job crafting, and
- how to predict which employees are most likely to engage in job crafting
Keywords: Job crafting, employee autonomy, employee engagement, alignment
2. How do personality and human resources practices help or hinder with job crafting?
The second research briefing is based on a study looking at the role of personality and human resources practices in being able to predict whether a job crafting will be successful in an organisation. The findings are particularly useful at an organisational level and help HR/HC functions promote and manage job crafting.
Keywords: job crafting, employee personality, HR practices, high involvement management, proactive personality, self-efficacy
3. How to use job crafting to enhance organisational change
The third research briefing is based on a large and detailed study of job crafting which examines the use of job crafting in organisational change situations, and usefully reports on a practical set of interventions which promote successful job crafting in order to assist with organisational change.
Keywords: job crafting, organisational change, job performance
Members also received two other research briefings:
4. How policies and procedures change the way people in organisations perceive things – the case of diversity policy.
This is an interesting study about how diversity policies can actually end up hiding racial discrimination. It makes some fascinating observations about how policy creates meaning and changes the way people in organisations see things. Even if you aren’t concerned with diversity policy this is worth reading from an organisational communications perspective.
5. Review all the most recent research on workplace harassment and bullying.
It looks at:
- Causes of workplace harassment
- Types of workplace harassment
- The role of the employee in workplace harassment
- How to measure workplace harassment
- The consequences of workplace harassment
- Suitable interventions to prevent and deal with workplace harassment.
