  • Job Crafting: Autonomy and workload as antecedents and the willingness to
           continue working until retirement age as a positive outcome

    • Authors: Els Vanbelle, Anja Van den Broeck, Hans De Witte
      Pages: 25 - 41
      Abstract: This study focuses on job crafting and explores autonomy and workload as antecedents and the willingness to continue working until retirement age as a positive outcome of job crafting in a population of employees aged between 45 and 65 years. We define job crafting as making changes in one’s job in order to optimize one’s functioning in terms of wellbeing, work-related attitudes or behaviour. Building on the selective optimization compensation theory, we expect job crafting to be a successful aging strategy which enhances the willingness to continue working. Furthermore, starting from the activation hypothesis of Karasek, we expect that employees in active jobs (i.e., a combination of high autonomy and workload) will craft their jobs to a higher extent. Results among 1168 governmental employees generally confirmed our hypotheses. An active work environment, in terms of high autonomy and high workload associated indirectly with an enhanced willingness to continue working via job crafting. Results and steps forward are discussed.

  • Construct validity of the IWP Multi-Affect Indicator scale in Romanian
           work environment

    • Authors: Andreea Butucescu, Andrei Șerban Zanfirescu, Dragoș Iliescu
      Pages: 42 - 55
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the construct validity of the IWP Multi-Affect Indicator scale. A questionnaire was administered to an occupationally heterogeneous sample of 341 employees. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was used to determine the factor validity of the questionnaire. We employed network analysis as a novel approach to elucidate differential relationships involving the IWP Multi-Affect Indicator’s four-factor structure. CFA results revealed satisfactory model fit, ,best represented by a 4-factor model for the Romanian sample, while network analysis confirmed the relationships between items and factors. We have concluded that this questionnaire is suitable  to measure differentiated core affects among Romanian employees.

  • The mediating role of task conflict and crossunderstanding in the relation
           between transactional leadership and team adaptive performance

    • Authors: Mădălina Georgiana Hoandră
      Pages: 56 - 68
      Abstract: Organizations depend on teams to achieve their proximal or distal objectives. They are required to perform at high level in dynamic contexts and unclear situations. In these environments, teams must be capable to adapt and adjust their performance according to the changes they are facing. This paper examines the relation between transactional leadership and adaptive performance mediated by task conflict and cross-understanding. These two mediators seem to be an important part of team cognition. We analysed 33 real working teams and their leaders, these teams operating in different domains. We found that task conflict and cross-understanding mediated he relation between transactional leadership and adaptive performance. This result contributes to the literature stating that transactional leadership can have benefits on adaptive performance. Another contribution is that we analysed the newly introduced concept of cross-understanding, and we identified situations where task conflict is benefic for adaptive performance.
