Languages of publication



Celem artykułu jest wykazanie, czy dyspozycje pracownika w postaci cechy charakteru i temperamentu R. Cloningera mogą sprzyjać skłonności do kształtowania pracy. Kształtowanie pracy1 jest zachowaniem polegającym na dokonywaniu zmian w zadaniach oraz relacjach w ramach wykonywanej przez siebie pracy. Badanie przeprowadzono wśród 162 pracowników z wykorzystaniem Kwestionariusza Temperamentu i Charakteru TCI-R (56) oraz Kwestionariusza Kształtowania Pracy – KKPracy. Zaprezentowane wyniki potwierdzają, iż poziom kształtowania pracy jest zależny (R2=0,36) od unikania szkody (β=-0,39), uzależnienia od nagrody (β=0,32), samokierowania (β=-0,28), autotranscendencji (β=0,24) oraz skłonności do współpracy (β=0,15). Kształtowanie zadań jest objaśniane przez 24% zmiennych unikanie szkody (β=-0,42) oraz wytrwałość (β=0,16). Kształtowanie myślenia o pracy jest wyjaśniane w 22% przez autotranscendencję (β=0,39) i skłonność do współpracy (β=0,19), natomiast skłonność do kształtowania relacji interpersonalnych jest objaśniana w 22% przez uzależnienie od nagrody (β=0,40) oraz skłonność do współpracy (β=0,17).
The aim of this article is to show if the disposition of the employee in the form of his/her personality traits and temperament according to R. Cloninger, may further form proclivities while doing the work. Job crafting is a behaviour which consists in making changes to many tasks or relationships while doing someone’s work. The study was performed among 162 employees with the use of The Temperament and Character Inventory TCI-R (56) and The Job Crafting Questionnaire. The presented results confirm that the level of job crafting (R2=0,36) depends on: harm avoidance (β=-0,39), reward dependence (β=0,32), self-directedness (β=-0,28), self-transcendence (β=0,24) and cooperativeness (β=0,15). Tasks crafting is explicated by 24% variables – harm avoidance (β=-0,42) and persistence (β=0,16). Cognitive crafting is clarified in 22% by self-transcendence (β=0,39) and cooperativeness (β=0,19). However, relational crafting is explained in 22% by reward dependence (β=0,40) and cooperativeness (β=0,17).
