Abstract [sv]

Syftet med föreliggande studie är att ur ett socialpsykologiskt perspektiv undersöka vilka upplevelser inhyrd personal har på ett visst företag beroende på vilken arbetsgrupp de tillhör. I studien har vi utgått från en kvalitativ metod med nio semistrukturerade intervjuer där urvalet bestod av fem manliga informanter och fyra kvinnliga. Resultatet visar att det finns övervägande positiva upplevelser av att arbeta som inhyrd på det aktuella företaget där sociala relationer och ett gott bemötande är viktiga orsaker till dessa.  Resultatet visar även på skillnader i upplevelser hos den inhyrda personalen beroende på vilken arbetsgrupp de tillhör och vilka grupprocesser som utspelar sig inom denna. Resultatet har vi sedan analyserat med hjälp av ett flertal teoretiker; Moira von Wright, Johan Asplund, Norbert Elias, Georg Simmel, Susan A. Wheelan och Abraham Maslow. Analysen visar bland annat att den inhyrda personalens egenskaper skapas i samspel med de direktanställda och att detta gör att de känner sig som en del av arbetsgruppen.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examining which experiences that temporary workers has on a particular company from a social psychological perspective, and see if the experiences depend on which workgroup they belong. In this study we have used a qualitative approach with nine semi-structured interviews, where the sample consisted of five male and four female informants. The results show that there are generally positive experiences of temporary work on the relevant company in which social relationships and good treatment are important causes. The results also show differences in the experiences of the temporary workers, depending on the working group they belong and which group processes that take place within it. The result, we then analyzed with the help of several theorists: Moira von Wright, Johan Asplund, Norbert Elias, Georg Simmel, Susan A. Wheelan and Abraham Maslow. The analysis shows that the temporary workers characteristics are created in interaction with those directly employed and that this makes them feel as part of the working group.
