    Hur anställda inom den psykiatriska vården upplever sitt arbete och sin arbetssituation: En kvalitativ studie.2019Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 5 credits / 7,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Föreliggande studie är en kvalitativ studie om personer vilka arbetar inom psykiatrisk vård och deras upplevelse av sitt arbete och sin arbetssituation. För att undersöka detta har fyra personer vilka arbetar med psykiatrisk vård intervjuats i mellan 30 till 50 minuter. Det som sades under intervjuerna är materialet vilket studiens resultat baserats på.

            Materialet har bearbetats med hjälp av tematisk analys som genom en sexstegsprocess genererat fyra teman: brist på kommunikation och förståelse, ansvar och kompetens leder till känsla av meningsfullhet, tillfredsställelsen kring att ingen människa är den andra lik och vikten av att ha bra och goda relationer med kollegor.

            Slutsatser vilka är möjliga att dra utifrån studiens resultat är att det är påfrestande för personalen att arbeta och leva i tider av förändringar och ovisshet men att det är arbetet med människan som är det centrala kring att personer väljer att arbeta med detta. Det är också möjligt att förstå vikten av hur graden av kontroll spelar in på de anställda och deras mående samt hur socialt stöd i form av goda relationer med kollegor är avgörande för trivsel på arbetsplatsen och hur väl de anställda klarar av att hantera stress och svåra situationer.

    We want you as our new recruit: Prerequisites for recruitment to and retention in the Swedish Armed Forces2018Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis was to study the prerequisites for the Swedish Armed Forces (SAF) in order to recruit sufficient numbers of suitable individuals to the organization, and to retain those within the organization.

    The thesis comprises three studies (Study 1-3) where Study One comprises data gathered, with a longitudinal design, when Sweden relied on conscription for the manning of the Armed Forces. Results show that those wanting to do international military service assessed themselves higher for required qualities than those individuals not volunteering for international military service. Study Two shows that job satisfaction, according to Hackman and Oldham´s Job satisfaction model, is higher when job characteristics are good, and they in turn affect the Critical Psychological States, as proposed by Hackman and Oldham. Study Three indicates that there is a relation between performance orientation, job characteristics, job satisfaction and retention. In sum, this thesis suggests that there are different incentives for recruiting and retaining personnel to a conscripted force, and an all-volunteer force. Furthermore, the thesis indicates that an all-volunteer force concept is not the best way of manning the armed forces, for Sweden and countries with similar society, size and likewise a critical geopolitical position.

    The Path to Job Satisfaction: Applying the Theory of Purposeful Behavior to Military Conditions2017In: Journal of Defense Resources Management, ISSN 2068-9403, E-ISSN 2247-6466, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 27-42Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to examine the relationships between, on one hand,personality and performance orientation and, on the other, job satisfaction andturnover intentions, using Barrick’s et al. theory of purposeful behavior. Using aquestionnaire, data about job satisfaction, performance orientation and turnover intentions were collected from 300 newly recruited Swedish soldiers. A path analysis gave partial, but not full support to the assumptions behind the theory of purposeful behavior model. No relationships were found between the personality traits of emotional stability and conscientiousness, nor to either performance orientation or directly to job satisfaction. On the other hand, performance orientation showed a consistent relationship to perceived levels of the job characteristics, which mediated the path between the person-related variables and the outcome variables.Performance orientation also showed a strong direct relationship to general job satisfaction, which, in turn, was strongly related to turnover intentions.

    Job satisfaction among Swedish soldiers: Applying the Job Characteristics Model to newly recruited military personnel2018In: Military Psychology, ISSN 0899-5605, E-ISSN 1532-7876, Vol. 30, no 4, p. 302-310Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A professional military organization was introduced in Sweden in 2010. This means that the Swedish Armed Forces (SAF) need to attract and employ soldiers, and to retain them within the organization. This scenario creates new types of challenges in manning the organization. The transition to an all-volunteer force puts job satisfaction in focus in order to retain personnel. This cross-sectional study of the relations between working conditions and job involvement among 300 recently employed soldiers showed that the dimensions of the Job Characteristics Model related significantly to job satisfaction and work motivation and (negatively) to turnover intentions from the SAF. The results further showed that all the critical psychological states contributed independently to the variance in the outcome variables.

    En tvärsnittsstudie om stress, energi, välbefinnande och optimism hos yrkesarbetande kvinnor2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    A quantitative questionnaire was conducted to investigate possible relationships between perceived stress levels, perceived energy levels, optimism and subjective well-being. The participants consisted of 94 working women from different workplaces around Sweden who answered an electronic survey via a link they were sent to. The variable stress and energy level has been measured by the Stress and Energy Form (SE). Variable optimism was measured by the Life Orientation Test Reversed (LOT-R) and the variable subjective well-being was measured by The Satisfaction With Life Scale (SWLS). Data has been handled in SPSS and analyzed by Pearson's correlation test to investigate whether there is any relationship and then proceed with multiple regression analysis to investigate predictions between some of the significant relationships. There was no significant relationship between optimism and stress level experienced in this study. Results and validity in relation to different life situations and working conditions were discussed. The conclusion is that based on the regression analysis, the energy level and well-being explain 26 % of the variance in the stress level. In a further study, it would also be relevant to investigate additional factors that contribute to women's experience of stress, such as the work environment, social support and physical activity, which could provide a better overall picture of what could be important for women's well-being.
