Title: What shapes work design and how work design shapes employee wellbeing

Abstract

There is already considerable evidence around the positive effects good work design for a wide range of individual and organisational outcomes. But although we know a great deal about how enriched work designs enhance employee wellbeing and organisational productivity, little research has investigated how individuals actually design work. Similarly, less attention is given in the work design literature to understanding the interplay of different types of work demands and their effects on employees. During my talk, I will present my research addressing these two major gaps in work design literature. First, I will present results from a series of studies investigating how individuals actually design work for others using a survey-based simulation paradigm. Then, I will present results from a large-scale survey study conducted in the maritime industry looking at how different types of work demands shape employee psychological wellbeing. Throughout my presentation, I will highlight how these studies fit into my wider research program focusing on work design, safety and wellbeing at work and how I plan to extend this research into the near future.
