“Participation is commitment” : A qualitative study of participation among first line managers within home care (English)
The aim of this qualitative study is to examine the experience of participation among first line managers within community home care. The study is based on eight interviews with first line managers operating in a metropolitan area in Sweden. A majority of the interviewees worked in private companies.
We have used two theories to interpret our empiri: Lean Production and Human Resource Management. The analysis resulted in seven themes: economy, leadership, participation, view on the organization, first line manager, private or municipally operated organization and expectations on the manager. Our results showed that all the interviewees experienced that they were participant in the organization. The participation however differed from interviewee to interviewee. The staff affected how the first line manager experienced participation. All interviewees believed that accessibility and presence were important factors for participation.
