Where Does Work Design Come From?



Sharon Parker, Anja Van den Broeck, and David Holman are excited to announce that our new paper on the multi-level factors that can shape work design is soon to be published in the Academy of Management Annals.

In the paper, the authors argue that - despite much evidence that high quality work design is a key determinant of employee well-being, positive work attitudes, and job/organizational performance - many job incumbents continue to experience deskilled and demotivating work. As such, there is a need to understand better where work designs come from. The authors review research that investigates the factors that influence work design, and propose an integrative framework showing direct and indirect ways in which work design is shaped by the higher-level external context (global/ international, national and occupational factors), the organizational context, the local work context (work group factors), and individual factors.
