Keywords: job crafting, organisational change, job performance
Job crafting or the ability of employees to change and design their work, roles and relationships has been found to produce a number of positive outcomes. A new study just published by researchers from a number of universities in the Netherlands and Greece wanted to know if (or how) job crafting helps with organisational change, particularly in times of fiscal tightening.
Job crafting has been seen as a method by which employees are able to take charge of their own working life to create a meaningful, healthy and motivated work environment. It has been found that, both in times of austerity and during large-scale organisational change events and restructuring, organisations tend to be unlikely to invest in ensuring that jobs and roles are enriched and fit perfectly with the organisational strategy for development.
