Abstract

The coronavirus disease pandemic of 2019 (COVID-19) has swept the globe. This study examined the relationship between job crafting and work engagement at manufacturing employees during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Participants were 187 employees working in two manufacturing companies in Indonesia. Job crafting was assessed using Job Crafting Scale (JCS) by Tims, Bakker, and Derks in 2012, and work engagement was assessed using the Utrecht Work Engagement Scale -9 (UWES-9) by Schaufeli, Bakker, and Salanova in 2006. Results indicate that there is a relationship between job crafting and work engagement in employees in the manufacturing industry with r correlation (r) .40. Furthermore, the job crafting dimension increasing structural job resources, increasing social job resources, increasing challenging job demands had positively associated with work engagement. Decreasing hindering job demands had no significant relationship with work engagement.
