Author : Prof. Dr. Stefan Huf 1 Prof. Dr. Christopher Paul 2

Date of Publication :23rd October 2022

Abstract: Job crafting describes an employee-initiated job redesign process undertaken to make the role assigned to the employee more attractive. This article outlines how a targeted personnel development approach can influence an employee’s job crafting initiatives to improve their job satisfaction, motivation and performance, and prevent dysfunctional consequences of self-initiated job redesign.
