Who takes care of the manager? : An exploratory study of manager´s perceived organizational and social work environment (English)
Abstract [en]

“Who takes care of the manager?”An exploratory study of manager´s perceived organizational and social work environment. 

The study aims to create a deeper understanding of managers' experiences, of their organizational and social work environment. Furthermore, the study aims to examine managers' perceptions of health factors that they perceive as health-promoting. The main question of this study is; “How do managers experience their organizational and social work environment?”. As previous research has often focused on preventive factors, this study focuses on a health-promoting perspective. Which refers to the study's second question; "What health factors do managers perceive as health-promoting?". The study applies a qualitative method through semi-structured interviews for the collection of empirical material. The sample consists of eight first-line and middle managers in various industries. The study has an exploratory focus in order to create a basis for further research. 

The results of the study show that recovery, communication, colleagues, social relationships, clear roles, goals and tasks are perceived as important organizational and social aspects in the manager's own work environment. The results also show that perceived health factors are flexibility in working hours, being heard, support from colleagues, functioning social relationships and recovery by adapting their meetings.  

Keywords: Organizational and social work environment, management, health factors, health promotion.

Abstract [sv]

Studien syftar till att skapa djupare förståelse för chefers upplevelse, av deras organisatoriskaoch sociala arbetsmiljö. Studien syftar även till att undersöka chefers uppfattning om defriskfaktorer som de upplever som hälsofrämjande. Uppsatsens huvudfrågeställning är; “Hurupplever chefer sin organisatoriska och sociala arbetsmiljö?” Då tidigare forskning oftafokuserat på preventiva faktorer, inriktar sig denna studie på ett hälsofrämjande perspektiv.Vilket syftar till studiens andra frågeställning; “Vilka friskfaktorer upplever chefer somhälsofrämjande?” Studien tillämpar kvalitativ metod genom semistrukturerade intervjuer förinsamling av empiriskt material. Urvalet består av åtta första linjens- och mellanchefer inomolika branscher. Studien har ett explorativt fokus i syfte att skapa underlag till vidareforskning.Studiens resultat visar på att återhämtning, kommunikation, kollegor, sociala relationer,tydliga roller, mål och arbetsuppgifter upplevs som viktiga organisatoriska och socialaaspekter i chefens egna arbetsmiljö.

Resultatet visar vidare på att upplevda friskfaktorer ärflexibilitet i arbetstid, att bli hörd, kollegors stöd, fungerande sociala relationer ochåterhämtning genom att anpassa sina möten.
