In an age where employees are becoming increasingly disengaged at work, the concept of job crafting has been developed to help employees gain more control over their professional lives. Job crafting describes the process by which employees alter the tasks, relationships, or perceptions of their jobs in order to bring more purpose and fulfillment to their work. In an ever-fluctuating economy where job stability is highly valued, job crafting is a practical way to turn the job you have right now into the job you want. This study examines experienced job crafters and outlines their most effective methods in order to derive a set of principles and practices that any individual can implement to effectively incorporate job crafting into his or her current role.
