Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to examine how white-collar workers within the municipality handle work related stress. The questions that were asked were: “In which way do we handle stress?” and “How does stress affect us?” The method used was semi structured interviews with five female participants and two male. The interviews took place in the participant’s workplace and were after consent from the participant recorded. The interviews were approximately 30 minutes long. The result demonstrated that the participants used problem-focused, emotion-focused coping or a combination between these two to handle their work stress. These were the methods that worked best for them in work-life. In some cases they used exercise and in some rare cases they used avoidance coping too. The participants thought that stress could affect us positively up to a certain degree. They felt that they performed better and that they were contributing more to the group. The stress could also affect them negatively, for example as sleeping problems, stomach problems, pain in neck and shoulders and irritation.
