Empowering workers to job craft can cut turnover and increase employee engagement. But what exactly is job crafting — and how does it work? Job crafting is the process by which workers turn the jobs they have into the jobs they want. This involves proactively altering their roles to better align their tasks with their skill sets.

To create engaged workplaces, managers can give employees the tools and support they need to job craft.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What research has found about the impact of job crafting on employee satisfaction, productivity, and collaboration.

  • How managers can encourage employees to engage in job crafting.

  • The factors that make or break efforts to implement job crafting successfully.
