Job Crafting Exercise™

The Job Crafting Exercise™ (JCE™) helps you make your job more engaging and fulfilling. The JCE™ was developed and tested using cutting-edge academic research and helps you view your job in a new way — as a flexible set of building blocks rather than a fixed list of duties. Using this perspective, you create a visual plan for redesigning your job to better suit your values, strengths, and passions.

The JCE™ captures the active changes employees make to their own job designs in ways that can bring about numerous positive outcomes, including engagement, job satisfaction, resilience, and thriving. The following briefing introduces the core ideas of job crafting theory for management students by defining it, describing why it is important, summarizing key research findings, and exploring what it means for employees, managers, and organizations. Download What is Job Crafting and Why Does it Matter (132K PDF).
