TEAM SEMINARS: Thinking collaboratively for better research

By Florian Kluneck:

 

The researchers and international collaborators of the Centre for Transformative Work Design (CTWD) come together on a weekly basis for a research seminar. Researchers get quick feedback on initial research ideas and have the opportunity to discuss with different experts in an open, informal manner.

On this occasion, a visiting researcher from Belgium discussed her research on self-initiated change behaviours that employees engage in with the aim to align their jobs with their own preferences, motives, and passions. Job crafting has the potential to bring about numerous positive outcomes, such as enhanced engagement, job satisfaction, resilience and thriving.
