Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka medarbetares sexistiska attityder samt hur de skattar arbetstillfredsställelse och sociala relationer på sin arbetsplats. Detta genomfördes på en organisation i en mansdominerad bransch. Urvalet bestod av 600 anställda inom depånätet på den aktuella organisationen. Medarbetare och chefer besvarade en webbenkät som innehöll frågor gällande sexism-, arbetstillfredsställelse-, sociala relationer och ett antal bakgrundsfrågor. Data analyserades i statistikprogrammet IBM SPSS Statistics 22 med hjälp av tre hierarkiska regressionsanalyser. Resultatet visade att det inte finns någon signifikant samvarians mellan antal kvinnor på en depå och sexistiska attityder. Däremot framkom att män och medarbetare i högre grad än kvinnor och chefer har sexistiska attityder samt att chefer skattar högre på både sociala relationer och arbetstillfredsställelse än medarbetarna.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate sexist attitudes among employees and how they value job satisfaction and social relations at their workplace. This was carried out in a male-dominated organization. The sample consisted of 600 employees within the depots of the current organization. The employees answered a web survey which contained questions about sexism-, job satisfaction-, social relations and a number of background questions. The data were analyzed using IBM SPSS Statistics 22 where three hierarchic regressions were performed. The result showed that there was no significant covariance between the number of women on a depot and sexist attitudes. However, it was found that men and workers to a greater degree than women and executives showed sexist attitudes and that executives got a higher score than workers on both social relations and job satisfaction.
