What is the purpose of the study?
This study aims to explore the relationships between the perceived opportunity to craft at work, coworker support, a leader's transformational leadership tendencies, and job crafting. It examines how social organizational factors such as coworker support and transformational leadership dimensions impact employees' perceived opportunity to craft and promotion-oriented crafting behavior at work.
