Demerits of Job Enrichment

  1. Lazy employees may not be able to take additional responsibilities and power. It won’t fetch the desired results for an employee who is not attentive towards his job.
  2. Unions resistance, increased cost of design and implementation and limited research on long term effect of job enrichment are some of the other demerits.
  3. Job enrichment itself might not be a great motivator since it is job-intrinsic factor. As per the two-factor motivation theory, job enrichment is not enough. It should be preceded by hygienic factors etc.
  4. Job enrichment assumes that workers want more responsibilities and those workers who are motivated by less responsibility, job enrichment surely de-motivates them
  5. Workers participation may affect the enrichment process itself.
  6. Change is difficult to implement and is always resisted as job enrichment brings in a changes the responsibility.
