Abstract [en]

To find out how information technology, also known as IT, effect the human’s health in a negative way I have done a research on it. The research area is in an office working environment where employees use mainly software to solve their work assignments. The reason behind this is because it becomes more common for people’s mental health to become worse than better because of software was not made in the right way in order for human’s to use it. In the beginning it was made to make people’s life better, in this thesis’ case - manage work assignments. Unfortunately, the idea of a better way to handle work tasks did not always fulfill its goal. Software did not fulfill its task to improve how people work and instead everyone spend time to understand how software function. Time limitation, education and economy are some of the factors behind people’s mental health become worse. Even if research on this subject has been done, and will be done again, the problem still stands. For a better working environment in the future there is still the need of more research before researchers can determine what needs to be done to help people avoid mental health, such as stress, from IT.
