Job crafting describes employee-initiated job redesign 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.


Job Crafting bezeichnet die proaktive, selbstinitiierte Stellengestaltung durch Mitarbeiter, um die ihnen übertragene Stelle für sich selbst attraktiver zu machen. Der Beitrag zeigt auf, wie Unternehmen im Rahmen der Personalentwicklung zielgerichtet Einfluss auf die Job Crafting-Aktivitäten der Mitarbeiter nehmen können. Hierdurch soll die Arbeitszufriedenheit, -motivation und -leistung der Mitarbeiter gesteigert und dysfunktionales Job Crafting unterbunden werden.
