With the ESF project "Disability Inclusive Job Crafting" we want to increase the employability of employees with a physical and mild intellectual disability by supporting them in "wanting", "being able" and "daring" job crafting. By job crafting we mean "proactively adapting various task-oriented, relational, contextual and cognitive aspects of work, so that employees can pursue goals that are important to them." Job crafting is a skill and can therefore be learned. Those who are less skilled can follow a training and / or guidance process through various service providers. Because of the cost and duration, the existing offer of these service providers is often difficult to access for people with disabilities. In addition, job crafting is a very linguistic method, with the disadvantage that the low-skilled or people with a mild intellectual disability can have threshold anxiety. That is why we are developing a new service in this project in which job crafting behavior is stimulated and guided through micro-interventions (ie without intensive contact with a trainer or coach, but through online communication technology such as a website, Facebook, WhatsApp, mobile app,…) and tailored to people with mild intellectual disabilities. By making job crafting more accessible to employees with a disability, we want to enable them to work on promoting their sustainable employability.
