Job design is an effective tool which is used in order on the one hand to meet the needs of the employees and on the other to satisfy the interests of the organisation. Three of the main job design techniques that discussed in this paper are job rotation, job enlargement and job enrichment. Job rotation enables the development of the employees’ skills, their organizational retention, reduces job boredom, while at the same time it controls the work-related musculoskeletal disorders and reduces the exposure of workers to work-related injuries. Job enlargement adds more tasks to the existing tasks of the employee, thus increasing employee participation in the decision-making process. Job enrichment makes jobs more challenging and interesting and also enables the participation of employees in the decision-making process. The main conclusion of the literature review is that job design, if effective, manages to stimulate employees’ interest to work and to increase their job satisfaction, leading to high levels of employee performance and productivity.
