DEVOTTO, Rita Pimenta de; MACHADO, Wagner de Lara; VAZQUEZ, Ana Cláudia Souza  and  FREITAS, Clarissa Pinto Pizarro de. Work engagement and job crafting of brazilian professionals. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2020, vol.20, n.1, pp. 869-876. ISSN 1984-6657.

The job demands-resources (JD-R) model explains the relationships between job demands and (job and personal) resources as well as the outcomes of these relationships in terms of well-being and job performance. We investigated the relationships between working conditions, job crafting and work engagement in two groups of professionals, those with and those without management responsibility. A total of 538 Brazilians professionals, 56.5% female, with a mean age of 43.44 years (SD = 12.54), participated in the study. The results of the network analysis demonstrated that the change and role clarity were direct predictors of work engagement and that personal and moral harassment negatively influenced work engagement. Working conditions did not predict job crafting. Job crafting predicted work engagement in both groups of professionals. Cognitive crafting was a strong predictor of work engagement. Evidence is added to determine the factors that impact work engagement in the JD-R model.
