The team before self : A qualitative study of cohesion in a workplace (English)
Abstract [en]

Leadership is considered one of the most important factors when it comes to the experience of a well-functioning workplace and therefore there are many studies about leadership.

Our study aims to examine how the experiance of a well-functioning workplace can be explained by the cohesion instead of just leadership. To study the cohesion it has been important to ensure the corporate culture that prevails. We have studied this by examine the company's standards and values, the invisible culture. The study is conducted at a company that is in the middle of a valuation process, which means that they do not have any formal values that they work for. Despite this, the employees have a common understanding of how the values of the company are ​​perceived. This is a result of a strong cohesion.

The study is based on a qualitative approach where we conducted interviews with eight employees in a recruitment company in southern Sweden.

We have also done simple observations when we spent a lot of time at the company's office. We have analyzed our material using three key concepts; corporate culture, autonomy and roles. These concepts also became our keywords. The results of the study shows that a good cohesion is the key to a functioning workplace. Our conclusion is that it is not only the leadership that is the foundation for a well-functioning workplace. Leadership is a contributing factor, but it is the leardership together with the employes that create a well-functioning workplace.
