Abstract: The value of passion at work is continually emphasised in both popular discourse and organisational literature. Yet, studies on passion beliefs and different employee behaviours remain sparse. Our study investigated the relationship between deep-seated implicit theories of passion and self-initiated job crafting behaviour. Using an online sample of 242 participants, we examined how manipulating employees' fit and develop passion beliefs influenced their task, cognitive, and relational behaviours to redesign their jobs. Through simple mediation analyses, our results revealed that both implicit theories predicted higher levels of all three types of job crafting behaviour, to the extent that individuals were manipulated to endorse each implicit theory. Despite holding different underlying beliefs, both the manipulated fit and develop theorists engaged in more job crafting than the control group. These findings suggest that endorsing either belief would have a positive impact on organisational outcomes. Our study highlights the role of individual and environmental factors affecting passion at work, and provides employees and organisations with a preliminary basis to understand their proactive work behaviours and passion sentiments. Looking ahead, future research into the dynamic nature of job crafting is proposed.
