Edited by Ronald J. Burke and Astrid M. Richardsen
This chapter provides an up-to-date review of the literature around how individuals can take responsibility for their own development, employability and job design through job crafting. The concepts of job design and job crafting are introduced and explained before reviewing the evidence for the impact of job crafting on individual development. Evidence from the increasing number of intervention studies forms a particular focus, with their theoretical superior ability to effect change and determine causality. Theoretical implications and directions for future research are highlighted, followed by practical recommendations which workers can use to develop themselves in the workplace, and which organizations can use to help support the development of their workers.
