The experience of the psychosocial work environment as a man and a minority within the preschool and leisure activities. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka mäns subjektiva upplevelse av sin psykosociala arbetsmiljö inom förskole- och fritidsverksamheten, detta utifrån positionen som minoritet och könstillhörighet som man, i ett yrke som till antalet domineras av kvinnor. En kvalitativ studie genomfördes med åtta semistrukturerade intervjuer där intervjupersonernas upplevelser av sin psykosociala arbetsmiljö var i fokus. Det insamlade materialet analyserades slutligen med hjälp av en induktiv tematisk analys. Huvudresultatet påvisade att männen utifrån sitt kön och minoritetsposition både upplevde för- och nackdelar i sin yrkesroll. Flertalet av männen vittnade om kränkande särbehandling på arbetsplatserna, men många upplevde också stora fördelar gällande positiv särbehandling och utökade rekryteringsmöjligheter samt karriärmöjligheter. Vidare visade resultatet på betydelsen av det sociala stödet från ledning och kollegor.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to investigate how men in a subjective way experienced their psychosocial work environment in preschool and leisure activities, a profession that is dominated by women. Their subjective experience of their psychosocial work environment was based on their position as a minority and gender as a man. A qualitative study was conducted with eight semi-structured interviews in which the participants experiences of their psychosocial work environment were in focus. Finally, the collected material was analyzed using an inductive thematic analysis. The main result showed that the men, on the basis of their gender and minority position, both perceived and suffered in their professional role. Several of the participants described experiences of discriminatory abuse, but many also experienced great benefits regarding positive discrimination in the workplace, recruitment opportunities and career opportunities. Furthermore, the result showed the importance of social support from management and colleagues.
