The shift we have seen in the way many of us work, inevitably leads to employees creating their own optimal work environment.
We arrange our work space at home as we see fit. We sometimes work outside general office hours, since that works better for us, while others may feel the need to check in with their colleagues for a zoom coffee each day.
While still others will prefer doing so once a week.
When it comes to the actual work employees do, it seems natural that they’ll want to make some (small) adjustments there, too. This is where a concept such as job crafting comes in.
Job crafting is aimed at improving people’s jobs for the benefit of both the employee and the organization. It’s a technique that enables employees to improve their job in five different ways; in terms of tasks, skills, purpose, relations, and wellbeing.
The Job crafting Model
We believe that giving employees room to take ownership of their role will be essential for job satisfaction and productivity in 2021 and beyond, boosting both employee success and that of their organization.
