Best paper award Maria Tims

[ 28-11-2011 ] Best paper award Maria TimsMaria Tims has won the best paper award during the conference of the Dutch Association of Work & Organizational Psychology researchers (WAOP). Here is the abstract of the paper:

Tims, M., Bakker, A.B., & Derks, D. (2011). The impact of job crafting on job demands, job resources, and well-being.

The present study examined whether employees can impact their own well-being by crafting their work characteristics. Based on job design theory, we hypothesized that employee job crafting would have an impact on work engagement, job satisfaction, and burnout through changes in job demands and job resources. Data was collected in a chemical plant at three time points with one month in-between the measurement waves (N = 288). The results of structural equation modeling showed that employees who crafted their job resources in the first month of the study showed an increase in their structural and social resources over the full course of the study (two months). This increase in job resources was positively related to employee well-being (increased engagement and job satisfaction, and decreased burnout). Crafting job demands did not result in a change in job demands, but results revealed direct effects of crafting challenging demands on well-being. We conclude that employee job crafting has a positive impact on well-being and that employees therefore should be offered opportunities to craft their own jobs.
