well-designed job

Designing a good job is a menu, not a mandate. The National Fund has identified a range of components that can be combined to create a dynamic definition of a “good job.” At the most fundamental level, a good job includes family-sustaining wages and benefits and reliable hours. It provides opportunities for training, advancement, and participation in decision making. Ideally, frontline workers are involved in the job redesign process to help identify the most impactful components. See our job design framework.
