    Flexibla arbetsplatser och arbetsvillkor: En empirisk prövning av en retorisk figur2000Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det nya arbetslivet - finns det i verkligheten eller är det bara retorik? I debatten sägs ofta att allt är nytt - och att det nya arbetslivet i allt är det gamlas motsats. Det sägs att vi har gått från en rigid arbetsorganissation till en flexibel, från dåliga arbetsvillkor till goda. Hittills har sådana uttalanden inte stått på empirisk grund. I den här boken görs en empirisk prövning av två centrala teser i retoriken: att alla arbetsorganisationer nu är flexibla, och att arbetsvillkoren är bättre för de anställda på flexibla än på icke-flexibla arbetsplatser. Resultaten drar retoriken i tvivelsmål. Allt är inte nytt - och det nya är inte bra för alla

    Expansion of Output: Organizational Misbehaviour in Public Enterprises2013In: Economic and Industrial Democracy, ISSN 0143-831X, E-ISSN 1461-7099, Vol. 34, no 1, p. 107-122Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The term ‘restriction of output’ is a basic category in research on resistance and organizational misbehaviour and it has many synonyms, but seems to lack antonyms. The term means, of course, that employees do less work than they are expected to by management. The opposite behaviour is in the management literature regarded as organization citizenship behaviour, a term with several synonyms as well as antonyms. This article argues that ‘expansion of output’ can be a form of organizational misbehaviour and an antonym to restriction of output. The study bases its argument on empirical findings from the public sector: workers doing more than they are expected to do in order to resist management control. A typology of different kinds of expansion of output is suggested.

    On the track of the worker collectivity: Its various adventures over the past 60 years2015In: SAGE Open, ISSN 2158-2440, E-ISSN 2158-2440, Vol. 5, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the 1950s, the Norwegian sociologist Sverre Lysgaard investigated social relations at a pulp and paper mill, the result of which was his theory of the “worker collectivity.” This is an informal defense organization among subordinate employees against a company’s work organization and goals. Our research group returned to the same plant, which until 2012 was still a pulp and paper mill, with two questions in mind: Was the worker collectivity still present at the plant? What had happened since Lysgaard’s study when it came to the preconditions for the existence of the worker collectivity?

    Rituals of fun and mischief: The case of the Swedish meatpackers2009In: Employee relations, ISSN 0142-5455, E-ISSN 1758-7069, Vol. 31, no 6, p. 632-647Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract

    Purpose This article analyses rituals of humour and joking practices among two groups of meatpacking workers, to better understand the organic dynamics of workplace fun.

    Design/methodology/approach This is an ethnographic study of two groups of meatpacking workers within a Swedish food preparation company. Data were collected using multiple methods including observations, field notes, and individual and group interviews.

    Findings This study uncovers ample evidence of joking practices among the workers studied. These are presented on a continuum of pure to applied humour in five types: jokes, physical joking practices, clowning, nicknaming and satire.

    Originality/value This article gives a rich description and analysis of organic workplace humour in a contemporary food production setting and offers a typology of joking practices.

    Abstract [en]

    This is a reflexive ethnographic study of cleaners at a Finnish hotel. There were grounds in the cleaners working conditions for resistance and organisational misbehaviour to arise, but almost no collective actions or protests were performed. The needed common identity and problem definition was lacking because of two important impediments: Each hotel cleaner had to perform her work alone and there were few other opportunities to meet and discuss conditions; and they were divided into ethnic cliques with close to no communication between them. Instead resistance took individual forms, such as fiddling with cleaning standards and thefts

    'Don't fight the blue elephant': Humorous signs as protests and conductors of negotiations in Swedish Peace Support Operations2013In: Res Militaris, E-ISSN 2265-6294, Vol. 3, no 3Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on the role of ”applied” workplace humor (Mulkay 1988) as used by Swedish soldiers deployed overseas. The data primarily refers to workplace signs encountered at military compounds in Liberia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan and interviews with Swedish soldiers before, during, and after deployment. The article aims to compare signs found in two types of military contexts; high and – low-intensity conflict areas respectively, and the findings show that differences in the nature of operations (i.e. threat level and duties) is reflected in the messages’ content. 

    Further, we see humorous exchanges during overseas missions as something that provide the scope for relieving various stresses arising from disillusions, and from being subordinated to rules, policies and designed roles, but also where barbed ideas inappropriate for ”serious” communication are vented (Fine 1988). Overall, the paper adds to the literature a description of humorous exchanges in two organizational settings where the need for sense making is always present.
