Why volunteer? (English)
Abstract [sv]

I ett samhälle där eventindustrin är växande är det av stor vikt att få förståelse för vad som motiverar individer till att arbeta volontärt. Många evenemang skulle inte gå att genomföra utan volontär arbetskraft. Syftet med denna studie är att få förståelse för hur de instrumentella (yttre) och intrinsikala (inre) motivationsfaktorerna påverkar individer till att arbeta volontärt. Studien genomfördes med en kvalitativ metod och data samlades in genom sju semistrukturerade intervjuer. Studiens respondenter bestod av individer som tidigare arbetat volontärt. Vidare ska samtliga av respondenterna arbeta volontärt för EuroPride 2018. Resultatet påvisade mer skilda upplevelser gällande de instrumentella motivationsfaktorerna och fler enstämmiga svar gällande de intrinsikala faktorerna. Gemenskap var dock ett återkommande tema som samtliga respondenter belyste. Det framgick tydligt i studien hur de intrinsikala motivationsfaktorerna fanns väl förankrade och djupt rotade hos respondenterna, medan de instrumentella motivationsfaktorerna mer sågs som en bonus som förgyllde tillvaron.

Abstract [en]

In a society where the event industry is growing, it is of importance to understand what motivates individuals to work voluntarily. Many events would not be possible to accomplish without the work of volunteers. The purpose of this study is to gain knowledge of how the instrumental (external) and intrinsic (internal) motivational factors influence individuals to work voluntarily. The study was conducted with a qualitative method and data was collected through seven semi- structured interviews. The study's respondents consisted of individuals who previously have worked as volunteers. Furthermore, all of them will volunteer at EuroPride 2018. The result demonstrated different experiences regarding the instrumental motivation factors and more unanimous answers regarding the intrinsic factors. However, belonging to a community was a recurring theme highlighted by all respondents. It was clear in the study how the intrinsic motivation factors were well-rooted within the respondents, while the instrumental motivational factors were more viewed as a bonus that embellished life. This study will be presented in Swedish.
