Abstract
The aim of this study is to examine the relationship between job crafting and organizational identification along with investigating the mediating role of affective well-being in this relationship. Data gathered from 238 public and private sector employees in Turkey through the survey method was subjected to factor, reliability, convergent and discriminant validity analyses through structural equation modelling. Additionally, the mediating role of affective well-being was tested using PROCESS macro for SPSS. As a result, it was concluded that all aspects of job crafting positively related to positive affection while only task crafting and cognitive crafting were significantly related to negative affection. Besides, positive affection has a positive impact on organizational identification while negative affection has a negative impact. In terms of mediation analyses, positive affection has a partially mediating role in the relationship between all aspects of job crafting and organizational identification while negative affection partially mediates the relationship between task crafting/cognitive crafting and organizational identification.
