Giving a person a wider range of responsibilities at the level at which their current job is set. See job enrichment.
Involves combining multiple tasks once performed by several people into one job. As with rotation, it is designed to increase variety and reduce boredom association with job simplification.
Job Enlargement is the horizontal expansion of a job. It involves the addition of tasks at the same level of skill and responsibility. It is done to keep workers from getting bored. It is different than job enrichment.
The horizontal expansion of a job; an increase in job scope.
Adding duties to a worker's job to reduce exposure to specific stresses of repetitive or physically strenuous jobs.
a type of job re-design that increases the variety of tasks a position includes (also known as horizontal job loading).
Job enlargement is the name given to the process of extending the work cycle by adding related tasks to the job description. An example might be to involve the workers in cleaning, and maintaining their own plant, and perhaps also to obtain their own materials from a central store, thereby doing tasks that were once done by service departments. Like job rotation, job enlargement introduces variety.
The act of increasing in size, volume, or quantity or scope.
An increase in the number of tasks that an employee performs. It is associated with the design of jobs to reduce employee dissatisfaction.
Broadening the scope of a job by expanding the number of different tasks to be performed.
the scope of the work is widened and an individual or group might be given responsibility for several operations. Page 107
Job enlargement means increasing the scope of a job through extending the range of its duties and responsibilities. This contradicts the principles of specialisation and the division of labour whereby work is divided into small units, each of which is performed repetitively by an individual worker. Some motivational theories suggest that the boredom and alienation caused by the division of labour can actually cause efficiency to fall.
