Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsen syftade till att belysa svenska socialarbetares reflektioner kring sin närmsta chefs ledarskap och dess betydelse för sina arbetsvillkor. Två socialarbetare, verksamma inom enhet för barn- och ungdomsvård, intervjuades. Informanterna beskrev att en chef som var lyhörd, tydlig i sin kommunikation och aktivt visade ett intresse för de anställdas välmående påverkade deras arbetsvillkor positivt. Likaledes upplevde informanterna att en chef som var otydlig i sitt sätt att förmedla information, visade oförståelse för sina anställdas behov och som inte gav tillräckligt med socialt stöd påverkade deras arbetsvillkor negativt. Detta var i paritet med resultat från tidigare studier. Vikten av att framtidens socialtjänst fokuserar på utvecklingen av ett ledarskap som är gynnsamt för socialarbetares arbetsvillkor diskuterades.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate how social workers reflect on the leadership of their closest manager, and the significance of leadership in relation to their working conditions. Two social workers, working in child welfare social services, were interviewed. The informants described that a manager who was responsive to the needs of their employees, was clear in his/her communication, and showed an active interest in the wellbeing of the employees influenced their working conditions positively. Furthermore, the informants experienced that a manager who communicated in an unclear way, showed a lack of understanding of the needs of the employees, and did not give enough social support negatively influenced their working conditions. These results were in parity with earlier studies. The importance for future social services to focus on the development of a leadership favorable for the working conditions of social workers was discussed.
