Does employees’ creativity differ from job to job? The current study aims to examine the impact of four core job characteristics (skill variety, task identity, job autonomy, and job feedback) on employees’ creativity in Octal Company, Oman. To achieve the objective of this study, 92 questionnaires were collected from employees working in Octal Company. Data were analyzed using a multiple regression analysis. The results show that only three core dimensions of job characteristics (task identity, job autonomy, and job feedback) impact employees' creativity. These findings emphasize the role of job characteristics in employees’ creativity. Implications and future research have been outlined.
