Abstract

This study aims to examine the mediating effect of increasing job resources and challenge job demands on the relationship between flight attendants’ daily job crafting and daily organizational citizenship behavior (OCB). Drawing on the job demands-resources model, we proposed that daily task, relational, and cognitive crafting would be positively associated with daily OCB by increasing job resources and challenge job demands. To test this proposition, we collected daily diaries from 50 Korean flight attendants for ten consecutive working days and conducted multilevel modeling and a bootstrapping analysis. Findings showed that daily task, relational, and cognitive crafting were positively related to daily OCB though the mediating process of increasing job resources and challenge job demands. Our post-hoc analysis revealed that the proposed mediating model was more viable than the alternative causal model. These findings offer novel insight for job crafting and OCB literature.
