Abstract:The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of both high and low Person-Environment fit on the willingness of employees to engage in job crafting within five years from now. Data for this research was obtained through conducting a Delphi method, which consisted of two predetermined rounds. The subjects of this study were employees who work in the fields of education, banking, governments, care and the hotel and catering industry. Over the whole Delphi method a response rate of 89,5 percent was yielded. The employees filled in two questionnaires, on which responses were indicated on a 7-point Likert scale. A Mann-Whitney U test was used for analyzing the data. It was found that most employees are inclined to show proactive behavior in designing their work environment within five years from now. However, the perceived degree of Person-Environment fit does not provide a clear indication on whether employees perceiving a low Person-Environment fit will engage more in job crafting within five years from now, than employees perceiving a high Person-Environment fit.
