Job design and employee engagement

Maria Tims, Arnold B. Bakker

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


A well-designed job may foster employee well-being and engagement (Bakker and Demerouti, 2013; Hackman and Oldham, 1980; Parker and Wall, 1998). It is therefore not surprising that researchers have aimed to examine which job characteristics contribute to employee well-being and engagement, and which are likely to increase job stress. Together, the characteristics of the job comprise the design of the job.
