Social codes in the workplace : A qualitative study of social codes in the workplace and its possible limitations and resources for the human workforce. (English)
Abstract [sv]

En kvalitativ studie genomfördes kring fenomenet sociala koder för att skapa förståelse och fördjupa kunskaper kring vilken möjlig påverkan sociala koder kan ha på mänsklig arbetskraft i arbetslivet. Studiens resultat visade på att sociala koder förekommer på samtliga respondenters arbetsplatser. Detta tolkades innebära att sociala koder berör samtliga individer i arbetslivet. Frågeställningarna för studien var om det fanns sociala koder på arbetsmarknaden, och hur dessa kan påverka den mänskliga arbetskraften i arbetslivet. Ambitionen var att genomföra intervjuer för att sedan använda en fenomenologisk analys som kunde belysa skillnader och likheter kring respondenternas subjektiva upplevelser. I studien deltog fyra deltagare mellan åldrarna 23-56 år. Syftet var att få en mer djupgående förståelse för begreppet sociala koder, snarare än att generalisera resultatet till andra områden. Nyckelord utformades och formulerades sedan till fem teman som antogs beskriva sociala koder och dess inverkan på den mänskliga arbetskraften. Studiens teman benämndes som: tolkning av regler och social interaktion, utanförskap och gemenskap, varierande påverkan, förändringsbarhet och arbetskultur. Resultatet i studien baserades på subjektiva upplevelser och tolkades därefter i en diskussion kring hur detta resultat var användbart för övriga deltagare i arbetslivet.

Abstract [en]

A qualitative study regarding the phenomenon social codes was made to create a deeper understanding and develop knowledge about how social codes possibly could have an effect on human labor. The results of the study showed that social codes existed on all the participants workplaces. This was interpreted to imply that social codes was affecting all individuals in a social context on work. The questions of issue was if social codes existed on the labor market, and if these codes could possibly affect the human capital. The aim of the study was to implement interviews with four participants. Further it continued with a phenomenological analysis to illustrate differences and similarities within the results of the interviews. The participants of the study was between 23-56 years old. The study was not made to be able to generalise the studies results to a whole population, but instead to find a more profound description of the phenomenon social codes. Keywords were formulated and then decomposed into five themes to describe social codes and their impact on the human capital. The themes of the study was interpretation of rules and social interaction, alienation and communion, varied impact, changeability and work culture. The results of the study was based on subjective experiences and thoughts, which were interpreted into the discussion about how these results were useful for other employees.
