Abstract: The main objective of this study is to predict the relationships between job crafting and employees in role and extra-role behaviour in a non-Western context. The objective also seeks to confirm the validity and reliability of job crafting when measured as a multidimensional construct at a higher order. This study used a cross-sectional design and a self-administered questionnaire to collect quantitative data from 201 employees in the automotive industry in Iran. The partial least squares technique was used to test the developed hypotheses. The results found that job crafting exerts positive and significant effects on employees' task and contextual performance. Additionally, the output of this study confirms the measurement of job crafting at the second order in the form of reflective formative type 2 model. The conclusion, limitations, and future studies' directions are discussed as well.
