A successful organisation needs an effective job design strategy to
increase productivity and business performance, especially focusing on the
special group of employees who are fresh graduates. An integrated framework
is hereby proposed to identify the practices and conditions under which
employed fresh graduates will experience high levels of internal work
motivation, satisfaction, effectiveness and commitment (personal/work
outcomes). The framework is an extension of Hackman and Oldham Job
Characteristics Model and investigates the relationship among three groups of
variables: (a) core job dimensions (b) fresh graduates’ experienced
psychological states and (c) personal/work outcomes. The framework was
tested on a sample of 630 employed fresh graduates. Interesting results were
obtained regarding the interrelations of the three groups of variables and the
determinants of employed fresh graduates’ job design and redesign strategy.
