New Perspectives in Job and Organization Design Conference Paper uri icon


  • Job and organization design are increasingly important variables when one takes into consideration the two key objectives sought by most organizations: organizational effectiveness (productivity) and member welfare (job satisfaction). Job design is most relevant at the microergonomic level where the focus is upon human-machine and work station factors. Organization design is more concerned with the macroergonomic aspects of systems and their structures. The authors address both of these areas of interest, and present different perspectives and new directions in both job and organization design.
