Abstract [sv]

Samhället står inför utmaningar gällande den ökade mängden sjukskrivningar till följd av högre arbetsbelastning och nedskärningar inom olika yrkesområden. Detta innebär i sin tur prövningar för den psykosociala arbetsmiljön.

Denna studie har för avsikt att undersöka före detta enhetschefers psykosociala arbetsmiljö och dess eventuella samband till egen uppsägning. En kvalitativ ansats med målinriktat samt snöbollsurval ligger till grund för undersökningen. Sex intervjuer med före detta enhetschefer i en kommun har genomförts och en bearbetning av det empiriska materialet har skett genom en tematisk analys med hjälp av valda teorier såsom IMGD-modellen samt krav-, kontroll och stödmodellen.

Resultatet visar att chefstjänsten har förändrats och att det finns bristande möjligheter att påverka uppdraget. I studien dras slutsatsen att konsekvenser av organisatoriska beslut gett upphov till brister i den sociala och organisatoriska arbetsmiljön vilket i sin tur resulterade i enhetschefernas uppsägning.

Abstract [en]

The society is facing major challenges regarding sickness absence due to psychosocial work-related causes and increased workload as a result of austerity measures in different professions.

This study intends to investigate the psychosocial work environment of the former unit managers and possible links with their own termination. The survey is based on a qualitative approach with a targeted selection. In addition, a snowball surgeon has been used to make contact with significant persons for the purpose of the study. Six individual interviews with former unit managers in a municipality have been carried out and a processing of the empirical material has been done through a thematic analysis using selected theories like the IMGD model as well "high demand - low control model".

The results show that unit manager's duties has changed and that the ability to influence the assignment was inadequate. The study indicates that there is a connection between the psychosocial work environment and the unit manager's own termination.
