In the corporate world, digitalization and faster working methods require us to stay up-to-date on trends that allow us to reformulate habits, activities and keep motivation high.
One of them is Job Carving, a new term that means personalizing work duties. It can be used in different work situations:
- To create specific job positions, freeing up specialized staff time.
- Exchanging job tasks between team members to take maximum advantage of individual skills.
Creating job positions can lead to improvements in productivity, service performance and profitability because it better arranges each employee’s time.
The most recent study conducted by Enenred Spain indicates that 56% of talent management department heads are concerned about employee motivation, situating retention strategies among the primary goals to be achieved.
Creating customized job positions can benefit the organization and the employee differently, by working based on the individual’s strengths and the organization’s needs. Another advantage is that it clearly has an impact on flexibility, the employee becoming the person who decides how many hours to dedicate to each project.
In the search for our own well-being in the workplace, being self-aware of our profile and strategies such as Job Carving will allow us to achieve our maximum potential and be highly motivated!
