An attractive workplace?- A qualitive study about working in elderly care. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet var att undersöka hur medarbetare inom äldreomsorgen uppfattar äldreomsorgen som arbetsplats samt klargöra vilka faktorer som de upplever gör och skulle kunna göra äldreomsorgen till en attraktiv arbetsplats. En kvalitativ metod tillämpades genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med undersköterskor och vårdbiträden inom äldreomsorgen i Kungälvs kommun. Fyra av respondenterna var anställda då studien genomfördes och två av dem hade nyligen slutat. Resultatet visar en mångfasetterad uppfattning om äldreomsorgen som arbetsplats. Resursfördelningen på arbetsplatsen påverkar hur vården bedrivs samtidigt som medarbetarens egen vilja har en inverkan. Den främsta faktorn som gör äldreomsorgen till en attraktiv arbetsplats är den sociala kontakten med de äldre. Den sociala kontakten ansågs även ha en stor betydelse för att medarbetare ska vilja stanna kvar och för att kunna attrahera framtida medarbetare. En löneökning skulle enligt vårt resultat göra äldreomsorgen som arbetsplats ännu attraktivare. Det har även visat sig att organisationskulturen har en inverkan på attraktiviteten. Avslutningsvis diskuteras resultatet i förhållande till forskning inom new public management och employer branding samt använt en modell som är framtagen av Hedlund, Åteg, och Pontén.

Note

The purpose of this essay is to investigate how employees in elderly care perceive the elderly care as a workplace and to clarify which factors they feel are making and could make the elderly care an attractive workplace. A qualitative method was used through semi-structured interviews with nurses and nursing assistants in nursing homes in the municipality of Kungälv. Four of the respondents were employed when the study was conducted, and two of them had recently quit their works.

The results indicates a multifaceted picture of the elderly as a workplace. Resource allocation in the workplace affects how it is provided. The results also indicates that the meaning of the employee's own will have an impact on working in the elderly care. The main factor that makes the elderly care an attractive work place is the social contact with the elderly. The social contact is also to be considered as an important factor in making employees stay and to attract future employees. An increase of the wage would, according to our results make working in the elderly care more attractive. It has also been shown that organizational culture has an impact on attractiveness. Finally, we are discussing the results in relation to research on new public management and employer branding. We have also used a model that is developed by Hedlund, Åteg and Pontén.
