Abstract

Although work design is a significant theoretical foundation of human resource development (HRD), it has garnered little attention from researchers in the HRD field. To help remedy this oversight, we review job crafting, which is one of the most recent and significant work design theories. After reviewing 28 empirical studies examining the relationship between job crafting and performance, we discuss future research possibilities and implications for HRD theory and practice. As job crafting has been shown to have a positive relationship with performance, we encourage HRD researchers and practitioners to extend their understanding and application of job crafting.
