Abstract

Leading theories of job design have neglected to incorporate the important context of time into their premises, hindering these theories' explanatory power and utility. We demonstrate how systematically incorporating the context of time, in relation to the specific example of career dynamics, will improve our understanding of job design. We discuss the contribution of time by examining how career dynamics may influence employees' reactions to stimulating jobs and their propensity to craft more stimulating jobs.
