Job Enrichment

Job enrichment means redesigning jobs in a way that increases the opportunities for the worker to experience feelings of responsibility, achievement, growth and recognition. It does this by empowering the worker- for instance, by giving the worker the skills and authority to inspect the work, instead of having supervisors do that.

Job enrichment is the change in job duties to increase employees’ authority in planning their work, deciding how it should be done, and learning new skills.

Job enrichment is a motivational technique that involves designing or redesigning a job by incorporating variety, feedback and autonomy in the job in order to increase the satisfaction and motivation of workers.
