Notwithstanding the presence of strict rules constituting the prison system functions,
 it was proved that the phenomenon of job crafting in this employee group exists as well as the practical implications of the impact exerted by the specific proactive behaviours among superiors and subordinates focused on their own job crafting or personal crafting.
