Data were analyzed using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, chi-squared test, independent t-test, and repeated measures multivariate analysis of variance using the SPSS 26.0 for Windows. Results: Significant differences were observed between the experimental and control groups regarding job crafting (F=6.20, p=.003), task crafting (F=8.37, p<.001), cognitive crafting (F=6.29, p=.003), embeddedness (F=8.49, p<.001), and organizational well-being (F=4.90, p=.009).
