Abstract [en]

In this essay, we want to highlight the problems that middle managers face in the company. Middle manager is one of the most significant operators in a company, but also one of those most challenged position. Therefore, we want to increase the understanding of the problems through making a qualitative study using semistructured interviews and making use of the understanding the by using hermeneutic as analytical tools. To explain the empirical study we have used two theories - requirement, control and support model and the concept of KASAM. As a result, it emerged that the meaningfulness of work is an important aspect for the middle manager and are reflected in how the middle manager perceives the work load.

Abstract [sv]

I uppsatsen vill vi belysa den problematik som mellanchefer inom privata företag står inför. Mellanchefer är en av de viktigaste aktörerna på företagen men också en av de som är högst belastade på arbetet. Därför vill vi öka förståelsen för den problematiken genom att utföra en kvalitativ studie med semistrukturerade intervjuer och använda oss av förståelsen genom hermeneutiken som analysverktyg. För att förklara det empiriska materialet har vi använt oss av två teorier, krav-, kontroll- och stödmodellen samt begreppet KASAM. I resultatet har det framkommit att meningsfullhet i arbetet är en viktig aspekt för huruvida mellanchefer uppfattar arbetet som alltför påfrestande.
