Abstract

Based on the relational perspective of work, we examine the role of job autonomy, social skill, and employee status as factors related to employee job crafting. We found that job autonomy and social skill both directly and interactively influenced job crafting for part-time employees in Japan. We further found that for full-time employees in Japan, job autonomy had a stronger impact on job crafting when employee status was high, and that social skill had the strongest impact on job crafting when job autonomy was high and employee status was low. Our results demonstrate that social skill is a critical predictor of job crafting and that employee status alters the role of job autonomy and social skill in promoting job crafting.
