Job crafting


Gail Clarkson, Des Leach, Kerrie Unsworth and Anna Viragos are all working on projects examining how a person alters their job to suit their own interests and needs.  

Research aims 

  • Rather than seeing employees as passive leaves in the organisational wind, the aim of this research is to examine how employees can take control for improved outcomes 

Research questions

  1. What does prosocial job crafting look like and how can we facilitate that? 
  2. How does job crafting affect others in the group? 
  3. When will job crafting be most likely to occur?
