Abstract [sv]

Vårt syfte var att undersöka könsskillnad i upplevelse av lika villkor på arbetet för kvinnor och män vid ett teknikkonsultföretag med 739 anställda. Tidigare forskning har visat skillna-der i lika villkor på arbetet mellan kvinnor och män (Harris, Gilbreath & Sunday, 2002; Ma-rongiu & Ekehammar, 1999; Wicks & Bradshaw, 1999). Vi undersökte om könsskillnaden kunde förklaras utifrån fyra prediktorer: arbetsbelastning, lön och andra belöningsformer, arbetsplatsklimat samt utvecklingsmöjligheter. För datainsamling distribuerade vi en enkät till samtliga anställda (N=418). Gruppjämförelsen visade att kvinnor upplevde lika villkor för könen i mindre utsträckning än män. Multipel regressions analys för kvinnor visade att upp-levelse av lika villkor kunde prediceras till 47,2% utifrån modellen och att samtliga fyra pre-diktorer var signifikanta. Mäns upplevelse av lika villkor kunde prediceras till 9,5% utifrån modellen och två av prediktorerna, arbetsplatsklimat och utvecklingsmöjligheter var signifi-kanta. Resultaten diskuteras ur organisations- och samhällsperspektiv samt i relation till tidi-gare studier.Nyckelord: arbetsbelastning, arbetsplatsklimat, könsskillnad, lön och andra belöningsformer, utvecklingsmöjligheter.

Abstract [en]

Our aim was to investigate gender difference in experience of equal conditions at work for women and men at a technical consultancy organization with 739 employees. Earlier studies have shown differences in work conditions for women and men (Harris, Gilbreath & Sunday, 2002; Marongiu & Ekehammar, 1999; Wicks & Bradshaw, 1999). We investigated if gender differences could be explained by four predictor variables: workload, salary and other forms of rewards, workplace climate and development opportunities. To collect data we distributed a survey to all employees (N=418). A group comparison confirmed that women experienced less equal conditions for the genders than men did. Multiple regression analyses for women showed that our model predicted 47.2% of the variance displayed in the criterion variable. All four predictor variables were significantly related with women’s experience of equal condi-tions at work. For men the model predicted 9.5% of the variance displayed in the criterion variable. Workplace climate and development opportunities were significantly related with men’s experience of equal conditions at work. The results are discussed from both an organ-izational and society view in relation to earlier findings.Keywords: workload, workplace climate, gender difference, salary and other forms of rewards, development opportunities.
