Individual characteristics and working conditions consistently show associations in cross-sectional research. However, the complex reciprocal relationship can only be disclosed by following people across (at least parts of) their working lives, repeatedly assessing both work characteristics and individual factors. The first goal of the current research proposal is to study reciprocal relationships between resourceful work design and personal resources. The second goal is to study the long-term antecedents of and consequences of work success, focusing on growth rates in resourceful job design and personal aspects, their intercorrelations, and their capability to predict work success in a latent growth model. Analyses are based on the two largest longitudinal data samples within Switzerland; the Work Experience and Quality of Life in Switzerland (AEQUAS) and Transition from Education to Employment (TREE) longitudinal studies on quality of working live.
