What We Do

Job Crafting LLC develops and distributes tools to help people thrive at work. Our tools are based on our own academic research. We use data to create, test, and refine our tools to maximize their impact.

We are the exclusive distributor of the Job Crafting™ Exercise (JCE). Our research team developed the JCE in partnership with the Center for Positive Organizations at the Ross School of Business, University of Michigan. We continue to partner with the Center for Positive Organizations to help bring the JCE to the world.
