In the last byte, we discussed about the role of job in an organizational context. In today's byte, we look at some approaches towards job design.
Badly designed jobs leading up to a variety of performance problems in organizations are often due to failure to differentiate, integrate or both. If jobs are designed well, it could avoid problems, improve productivity, and enhance employee well-being.
Four approaches to job design are:
- Scientific Management
- Job Enlargement/Job Rotation
- Job Enrichment
- Job Characteristics Theory
We shall discuss these over the next few bytes.
