Implementing and sustaining work redesign concerns how organisations sustain job redesign efforts over the longer term. However, much of the research literature on job redesign concentrates on discrete interventions that are relatively time limited. Drawing primarily on studies focused on implementing job redesign interventions targeted at worker health and wellbeing, we first draw attention to the factors that can sustain job redesign over the shorter term. We then widen our focus to examine how discrete job redesign interventions connect with the wider organisational environment and how job redesign may evolve within the context of changing organisational environments. Further, we examine how job redesign may be encouraged across multiple organisations, in the forms of industrial guidance/policies and placed-based initiatives in specific locations. We finish the chapter by considering the implications of a longer-term perspective on job redesign for research methods.
