What is it that organisations have to do in order to get people engaged with job crafting?

Research Briefing

Keywords: job crafting, performance, job satisfaction, person-job fit, P-J fit, cognitive crafting, relational crafting, task crafting

One of the more recent ideas in organisational development is that of job crafting. The concept of job crafting really started in the organisational literature in 2001 and has caught on rapidly. Job crafting refers to the ability of employees to change a range of aspects about their own jobs, particularly in terms of the social or network connectivity (i.e. who else their job should connect with, both within and without the organisation), the tasks that are involved within their job, the physical location and ergonomics involved within their job, and a range of other features.

This research briefing looks at a study that examines what predicts employees’ actually engaging with job crafting at an organisational level. Just offering the opportunity to job craft is usually not enough for most employees to get involved doing it.
