The purpose of this paper is threefold: first, to present an overview of job crating conceptualizations; second, to illustrate various job crafting interventions proposed by scholars to intrude and encourage job crafting behaviour among workforce; and next, based on findings from the literature, to underline the significance of job crafting interventions in predicting various positive individual and organisational outcomes. The reasons why job crafting interventions are essential in organisations are discussed at the end as managerial implication.
A general review of the job crafting literature has been performed to offer the precise knowledge on the concept job crafting as well as job crafting interventions along with its significance and managerial implications.
The job crafting is the most discussed bottom-up redesign approach and gaining popularity in the job design literature. The researchers and practitioners are acknowledging the importance of job crafting interventions and understanding the urgency of incorporating such interventions at organisation.
The formal job crafting intervention instituted at organisation (e.g. inclusion of job crafting training in company’s manuals) could be instrumental to build up the job crafting behaviour among workforce and may overall develop the context that cultivates job crafting.
A summarised portrayal job crafting as well as job crafting interventions has been provided in this review in order to create awareness of leaders and employees regarding the method through which they can adjust tasks to their own requirements to realise more delight, engagement, and meaning in the job.
