Chapter 9: How does future work need to be designed for optimal engagement?

Marylène Gagné, Sharon K. Parker and Mark A. Griffin

Abstract

We propose a framework based on the integration of three theories (SMART work design, self-determination theory and work role performance theory) to explain how changes in work design influence work engagement and work performance in contexts of increasing technology, uncertainty and interconnectedness. This framework that can guide research on the effects of redesigning work to ensure workers will thrive in the future of work.
