Abstract [sv]

Organisatorisk lojalitet är en viktig bestämmande faktor för ett företags prestation och effektivitet. Under de senaste åren har intresset ökat för nystartade, snabbväxande företag och deras betydelse för den ekonomiska utvecklingen. Studier inom gasellföretag har tidigare baserats på företagens grundare och chefer. Syftet i detta examensarbete är därför att undersöka de anställdas grad av organisatorisk lojalitet och vilka faktorer som påverkar lojaliteten. Examensarbetet var av kvantitativ karaktär och genomfördes med hjälp av en enkätundersökning i vilken 223 respondenter deltog. Alla respondenter arbetar i svenska gasellföretag. Examensarbetets insamlade data analyserades med hjälp av multivariat regressionsanalys och hypotestest. Cronbach’s alfa användes för att säkerställa måttens reliabilitet. Resultatet visar att positiva samband finns mellan anställdas närhet till grundaren, erkännande och arbetstillfredsställelse samt organisatorisk lojalitet. Resultatet visar även ett negativt samband mellan monetära incitament och organisatorisk lojalitet. Studiens resultat ger implikationer för gasellföretags ledare genom att beskriva hur de kan öka den organisatoriska lojaliteten för att styra organisationen mot fortsatt tillväxt.

The collected data of the study were analysed by using a multivariate regression and path analysis. Cronbach’s alpha was used to test the measures reliability. The result show that there is a positive correlation between the employees’ nearness to the founder, recognition and job satisfaction with organizational commitment.
