Caratteristiche del lavoro e qualità della vita lavorativa: effetti sull'engagement e sulla propensione all'innovazione - Research have shown that characteristics of the work environments are related to employees’ well-being, performance and individual innovation. The study, carried out in a small manufacturing company (N = 32), using the Karasek’s model and a longitudinal research design, shows that characteristics of the work environments influence workers’ engagement and the frequency with which employees experienced positive emotion on the job. The level of employees’ innovativeness at T1 predicts job demands perceived at T2. Work characteristics are not related to employees’ performance and to employees’ propensity in suggesting ideas. Instead, an high level of control and a low level of demands fostering ideas implementation.
