Abstract [sv]

Omorganisationer har blivit allt vanligare och påverkar majoriteten av anställda och deras psykosociala arbetsmiljö, både medarbetares men också chefers. Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur ledningsgruppen i ett företag upplevde en organisationsförändring samt hur förändringen påverkade deras psykosociala arbetsmiljö. En intervjustudie genomfördes med 6 deltagare (5 män, 1 kvinna) i ett företag under en pågående omorganisation, samtliga deltagare hade en ledande befattning. Data analyserades med hjälp av tematiskanalys. Resultaten visade att majoriteten av deltagarna upplevde en negativ psykosocial arbetsmiljö under omorganisationen. Hög arbetsbelastning, ineffektiv kommunikation, brist i samarbete, otydlig arbetsorganisation, förändrade arbetsuppgifter, ökat ansvar gentemot personal och bristande delaktighet var de faktorer som deltagarna upplevde som bristande. Kollegialt stöd var en aspekt som upplevdes positivt. Studiens resultat har bidragit till en fördjupad kunskap om hur just chefer upplever sin psykosociala arbetsmiljö under en omorganisation. I framtida studier kan det vara intressant att genomföra en enkätundersökning för att få ett representativt urval och möjlighet hur ett större urval upplever organisationsförändringar.

Abstract [en]

Reorganizations have become more common and affect the majority of employees and their psychosocial work environment, both coworker and employer. The purpose of this study was to examine the managements experience regarding the changes within the organization with respect to psychosocial work environment. An interview study was conducted involving 6 participants (5 men, 1 woman) employed with senior positions at an organization that went through a reorganization. The data was analyzed using a thematic analysis. Results from the study indicated that the majority of the participants experienced a negative psychosocial work environment during the reorganization. The participants experienced high workload, inefficient communication, lack of cooperation, unclear work organization, changed tasks, increased responsibility towards staff, lack of participation and a good collegial support. Results of the study have contributed to a deeper knowledge regarding how senior positions experience their psychosocial work environment during reorganization. It could in future studies be interesting to do a survey which gives a representative sample and to examine how greater samples experience an organizational change.
