Key to effectively crafting a meaningful job for an employee is starting the thought process by looking at the values and strategy of the organization. By framing the job in these contexts the job design process is more likely to align potential employees with the purpose of the company. Once you have this context the following steps will ensure both meaningful and effective job design:
- Assess skills, needs, abilities, and motivations of employees and the organization.
- Design the job to meet those needs, abilities and motivations.
- Implement the new job design.
- Audit the success of the job design and begin with step one periodically as well as when problems have been identified.
