”That’s a non-question” : A qualitative study on recruiting attitudes towards ethnic diversity in their practical work (English)
Abstract [sv]

En studie visar att endast var fjärde arbetsgivare uppger att lagändringen från 2017, som säger att arbetsgivaren ska främja etnisk mångfald, har förändrat deras arbetssätt. Trots den brist på kompetens inom flera branscher, exempelvis att det år 2020 saknas 50 000 ingenjörer på den svenska arbetsmarknaden, visar studier att etnisk diskriminering förekommer. Detta ledde till vårt syfte som var att undersöka hur rekryterare förhåller sig till etnisk mångfald i deras praktiska arbete. Våra frågeställningar berörde bland annat hur fenomenet genomsyrar rekryterarens praktiska arbete. Det gjordes en kvalitativ studie och intervjuade rekryterare från olika företag i en större stad i Sverige. I resultatet har det framgått att nyanställda inte har fått utbildning om etnisk mångfald och det uttrycks som en icke-fråga. Utifrån lärandeperspektivet, anses rekryterare behöva mer organisatoriskt stöd samt möjligheter för att reflektera över hur etnisk mångfald kan förstås i deras praktiska arbete.

Abstract [en]

A study shows that only every fourth employer states that the change in the law from 2017, which states that the employer need to promote ethnic diversity, has changed their way of working. Despite the lack of expertise in several industries, such as the fact that by 2020 it will lack 50,000 engineers in the Swedish labor market, studies show that ethnic discrimination occurs. This led us to our purpose to investigating how recruiters relate to ethnic diversity in their work. We did a qualitative study and interviewed recruiters from different companies in a larger city in Sweden. The main result has shown that new employees have not received any education about ethnic diversity and it was expressed as a non-question. Bases on the learning perspective, the recruiters need more organizational support and opportunities to reflect on how ethnic diversity can be understood within work.
