Research indicates that job crafting has positive outcomes such as higher performance and more commitment. Yet, we still know little about the antecedents of job crafting and the ways in which organizations can enhance job crafting activities. Previous studies suggest that job crafting more often occurs in challenging work environments. The present study investigated several aspects of challenging work situations as antecedents of job crafting: LMX and situational goal orientation. We predicted that employees in a high-quality LMX relationship would perceive more situational learning and performance goals and consequently would show more job crafting. The sample consisted of 260 employees from different organizations who filled out a questionnaire. The outcomes of a Structural Equation Modelling analysis supported the predictions to a large extend: employees reported more job crafting when they had a high-quality LMX relationship with their supervisor. This relationship was partly mediated by perceived learning and performance goals. Implications and limitations are discussed.
