Wilmar about the JDR Model
When employees feel fit and engaged they will show this in their behavior. That means that they are committed, loyal, proactive, goal-oriented, and will go the extra mile. Not surprising, they will perform well at work. In contrast, employees who feel exhausted and burned-out experience distress, perform poorly, and may even call in sick.
According to research and practice, many issues play a role when it comes to charging and recharging one’s energy battery. These issues are clustered in GRIP in so-called ‘development areas’. Essentially, GRIP boosts personal growth and development related to each of these issues.
In addition to the experience we have in the area of stress and burn-out, we are also inspired by positive psychology. This scientific approach focuses on success, happiness, productivity and well-being of people.
The Job Demands- Resources (JD-R) model is an important guiding principle in GRIP. This model is co-authored by professor Wilmar Schaufeli and posits that work not only costs energy, but also may provide energy.
