The conventional way we design jobs is no longer relevant. It is time to shift from job specification to job crafting. About this event During our lifetime, most of us spends about 40 years in the workforce, unless we’re fortunate enough to win lotto or reap a sizable inheritance. During employment, we devote approximately half our waking hours during the work week on the job. Sadly, most people see this enormous chunk of time as a struggle, or at least, a bore, looking forward to the weekend. For it is on the weekend that these people can then indulge in worthwhile pursuits. That’s a big slab of potentially wasted time! The job itself is rarely spoken about as a primary source of disengagement. For over 100-years we have been told what to do, how to do it, and when to do it in our jobs. Jobs have been tradionally designed to place a straightjacket around the jobholder. Should we be surprised that over 70% of people are disengaged at work. Job crafting is the next evolution is job design. What is job crafting? How does it work? And how can it be implemented. This comes from Dr. Tim Baker's latest book, "The Future of Human Resources: Unlocking Human Potential." Join me by registering for this interesting look at redesigning jobs through job crafting.
