Job-crafting behavior has been found to be positively related to many organizational outcomes. This paper studied the relationship between individuals’ promotion focus and job crafting via the mediating role of psychological empowerment. We collected data from 447 employees of two Internet companies in China using a survey consisting of items from scales validated in prior studies. We found that employees’ promotion focus was related to their job crafting, and that psychological empowerment partially mediated this relationship. Our findings provide a reference for how to initiate employees’ job crafting. We present the theoretical and practical implications of our findings and discuss future research directions.
