Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to find out what it is that motivates staff to work with people with mental disabilities. There is currently very little research on how employees perceive their work with people with mental disabilities. There is even less research to explain their motivation, and when it comes to housing, the literature - and the article studies proved that there is nothing about the motivation of the work housing. The data collection method used was semi-structured qualitative research interviews which were analyzed using thematic analysis. Study results have been divided into five different endings themes: to understand and get to know another human being, personal development, to mean something to another person, a demanding job that needs to be discussed, to provide the best assistance, the staff must have the right materials and knowledge with them. The main conclusion to be drawn from this study is that it is the people that are most important in motivating the staff. The motivation seems to be in order to understand, to know, help and support another person in getting a better life.
