Abstract [en]

The use and technologies surrounding mobile phones will increase in the future. An example of this is the mobile positioning services. While some people believe that these services will lead companies toward a brighter future, other regards them as a threat to employees’ privacy. This thesis focuses on how employees perceive the future mobile positioning services and how this new technology affects their privacy at work. For the theoretical part of the research Soft System Methodology, the concept of mobile positioning, and three aspects of privacy were used. To reach the aim qualitative interviews and quantitative questionnaires were carried out. The following conclusions were made from the theories and the empirical material. Employees believe that mobile positioning services affect their privacy. They admit that the new technology has both positive and negative affects. Furthermore, privacy is something personal and of importance at work. The study also shows that employees’ view of privacy can differ from the companies’ view. Finally, from the study a proposal evolved. It shows that involving employees in the introduction of mobile positioning services will diminish the threats of invading their privacy.
