Title: I can, I want and I take responsibility.

Author: Nelum Berglund

In my quantitative study in the spring of 2016, entitled ”Employeeship - what is it?”, it was shown that goal orientation and following guidelines, rules, policies and safety routines at the work place are some factors that effects the employeeship. Those who felt that working com- munity and cooperation are important parts of the employeeship were relatively few. There- fore, the purpose of this study became to investigate the employeeship with particular focus on which role working community and cooperation have in this process. The main focus of my study was to investigate which meaning community and cooperation have on development of employeeship and how employeeship is experienced by employees and managers at Vårdia.

The study was performed as a case study were I used an open partially participation observat- ion as a data collection method. The empirical part of the survey was directed to a total of 37 individuals, of which one was a cheif exeutive officer, six managers and 30 employees. A total of 35 people were observed. Power to act, ability to communicate, cooperativeness, self- determination and occupational responsibility are the key factors in employeeship.

The will to communicate is highly dependent upon the ability to communicate and the mana- gements power to act. When the ability to communicate is lacking, the willingness to cooperate and to take responsbility beyond what is their duty due to their proffession also vanishes according to the participants. The will to cooperate was increased when the indi- viduals could communicate in a constructive manner. How the cooperation restricts or enables the employeeship is entirely dependent on which ability the organisation has to create effici- ent forms for cooperation, common goals and the indivuduals ability to broaden or change their view of their roles as employees in the organisation.

Key words: Employeeship, Employee, Organization, Community, Cooperation.
