Summary/Abstract: The main objective of this article was to review „work-design” theories as well as changes in the labor market that lead to a redefinition of the approach to work-design. The article describes these concepts and approaches to work-design (both those known in Poland and those with less attention given in Polish literature), which enjoyed the greatest interest in the management and work sciences and for years shaped practical guidelines: Management Theory by Taylor, Herzberg Theory, JCM Model by Hackman and Oldham, Warr's Vitamin Model, Job Demands – Control Theory by Karasek, Interdisciplinary Approach to Work Design by Campion and Thayer. The most important changes on the labor market were also described, which influenced the need to expand the list of features of work important from the point of view of employee well-being, indicating at the same time the need to design work from the perspective of not only the individual but also the team, taking into account the impact and co-responsibility of employees.
