Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur personliga tränare upplever sin psykosociala arbetsmiljö. Vidare används KASAM-teorin för att se vilka faktorer som bidrar till, respektive hindrar en god psykosocial arbetsmiljö. Metoden som användes var enkät med uppföljande intervju. Enkäten innehöll 18 frågor med stängda svarsalternativ. Enkäterna mailades ut till personliga tränare som nått myndig ålder, bosatta i Sverige och hade en anställning på en friskvårdsanläggning. I mailet fick även deltagarna förfrågan om deltagande i den uppföljande intervjun. Utifrån resultatet från enkäten skapades intervjufrågorna. Tre intervjuer gjordes. Resultatet av enkäterna sammanställdes i figurer och analyserades utifrån KASAM-teorin, även intervjuerna analyserades utifrån samma teori. Det framkom i resultatet att deltagarna upplever information och kommunikation mellan dem och chef, organisation och ledning som en bristfällig faktor i arbetsmiljön. Slutsatsen av denna studie har visat att personliga tränare upplever sin psykosociala arbetsmiljö på olika sätt. Det finns olika faktorer som har utvecklingspotential enligt KASAM-teorins tre begrepp. Dock anser majoriteten av deltagarna att de är motiverade och engagerade i sitt arbete vilket är en viktig del för att uppleva begriplighet, hanterbarhet och meningsfullhet.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine how personal trainers are experiencing their psychosocial work environment. Using the KASAM-theory we identify which factors contribute to the psychosocial work environment, and which factors that doesn’t. The methodology used in this study is a survey with a follow up interview. The survey contained 18 questions with closed answer options. The participants of the survey were personal trainers with the age of 18 years or above, residing in Sweden and with an employment in a wellness center. The survey was sent out by e-mail where participants also received a request to participate in an interview. Based on the results of the survey, the interview questions were created and three interviews were made. The results from the survey were compiled in figures and analyzed by the KASAM-theory. The interviews were also analyzed using the same theory. The results show that participants experience information and communication between them and manager, organization and management as a defective factor in the work environment. The conclusion of this study is that personal trainers experience their psychosocial work environment as very varied. There are different factors that have potential for development according to the KASAM-theory. The majority of participants state that they are motivated and committed to their work, which is an important part of experiencing comprehensiveness, manageability and meaningfulness.
