The effect of psychological factors and the association with success within companies : How the employer´s focus on psychological factors in an organization can lead to success (English)
Abstract [en]

Employees have begun to be seen as the most important resource for many companies and, according to researchers, the focus on human capital is expected to be even greater in the future. The purpose of the study was to investigate which organizational psychological factors that had the strongest effect and connection with success. The factors studied were leadership, skills development, freedom, pride and corporate culture. All 79 participants, from five different companies, answered the survey with questions regarding these five factors. Success was studied from four perspectives: financial profitability, staff turnover, employees' experience of focusing on human capital in the company and their experience of success in comparison with other companies in the same industry. Stepwise multiple regression was used as a statistical analysis in the study and the result showed that the factor of corporate culture was the one that consistently had the greatest effect on all of the dependent variables. On a shared second place was the variables competence development and freedom. All correlations were significant except for success based on economic profitability where the effects were too low to become significant.

Abstract [sv]

Medarbetare har börjat ses som den viktigaste resursen på många företag och enligt forskare förväntas fokus på humankapitalet bli än större framöver. Syftet med studien var att undersöka vilka organisationspsykologiska faktorer som hade starkast effekt och samband med framgång. Faktorerna som studerats var ledarskap, kompetensutveckling, frihet, stolthet samt företagskultur. Samtliga 79 deltagare, från fem olika företag, besvarade enkäten med frågor rörande dessa fem faktorerna. Framgång studerades utifrån fyra perspektiv: ekonomisk lönsamhet, personalomsättning, medarbetarnas upplevelse av fokus på humankapitalet i företaget samt deras upplevelse av framgång i jämförelse med andra företag inom samma bransch. Stegvis multipel regression användes som statistik analys i studien och resultatet visade på att faktorn företagskultur var den som genomgående hade störst effekt på samtliga av de beroende variablerna. På en delad andra plats kom variablerna kompetensutveckling och frihet. Alla korrelationer blev signifikanta med undantag för framgång baserat på ekonomisk lönsamhet där effekterna var för låga för att ge utslag.
