”The two employees who were hired last went on sickleave” : A qualitative study on social workers ́work environment and challenges during the first working years. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna studie har gjorts i syfte att undersöka nyexaminerade socialarbetares arbetssituation samt för att skapa förståelse för vilka utmaningar de möter i arbetet och hur de hanterar dessa. Med anledning av att resultatet speglas av höga arbetskrav och olika strategier användes krav-kontroll- stödmodellen samt coping för att analysera empirin. I studien har en kvalitativ forskningsmetod använts och intervjuer har gjorts med fem nyexaminerade socialarbetare. Vidare har tidigare forskning inom området som socialarbetares första tid i yrkesrollen, kollegialt stöd, socialarbetares kravfyllda arbetsmiljö, verktyg för att hantera arbetsmiljön samt konsekvenser av den analyserats och använts i arbetet. Resultatet visade att det finns en koppling mellan en bra introduktion och upplevelsen av en god arbetsmiljö. Respondenterna vars upplevelser av en bristfällig introduktion, gav uttryck för en känsla av hög arbetsbelastning och stress. Stressupplevelser varierar samtidigt som respondenterna visar på olika metoder för att hantera sin arbetssituation. Beskrivningar har getts av arbetsplatsens förebyggande arbete för att skapa god arbetsmiljö samt respondenternas upplevelser av det kollegiala stödet. Vidare framgick deras känsla av otillräcklighet inför klienterna.

Furthermore, has previous research in the field as a social worker ́s demanded work environment, tools for managing the work environment and consequences of it been analyzed and used in the study. The result showed that there is a link between a good introduction and the experience of a good working environment. The respondents, whose experiences of a poor introduction, expressed a feeling of high workload and stress.
