Abstract [sv]

Syftet med uppsatsen är att försöka få en inblick i hur viktigt det anses vara att en nyanställd ”matchar” en organisation i form av personlighet och värderingar, snarare än att denne besitter rätt yrkeskunskaper. Syftet är även att utreda om det finns en existerande organisationskultur på ett industriföretag, samt hur genomgående denna kultur verkar vara. Avslutningsvis har författarna försökt utreda hur nya medarbetare socialiseras in i den undersökta organisationens kultur. Resultaten är baserade på tre gruppintervjuer med operativ personal, intervjuer med två personer från organisationens ledningsgrupp, samt intervjuer med två olika rekryteringsföretag. Resultaten pekar på att en ”match” med organisationen upplevs vara viktig när det gäller grundläggande värderingar, men att olika personligheter uppskattas mer än lika egenskaper hos nyanställda. Resultaten tyder även på att socialiseringsprocessen kan ha en större betydelse för en upplevd samstämmighet med organisationen, än vad en tillämpad P-O- fit vid rekryteringen kan tänkas bidra till.

Abstract [en]

The purpose with this study is to achieve a deeper knowledge and understanding for the perceived importance of using a Person-Organization fit in recruitment. The study also aims to investigate a possible existing organizational culture in an industrial company, and how concistent this culture seems to be throughout the organization. The authors have also tried to gain knowledge on how new employees are indroduced into this culture. The results are based on three group interviews with operational personnel, interviews with two persons from the manegerial group, and interviews with two recruitment firms. The results indicate that a Person-Organization fit is perceived to be important when it comes to some basic values. However, different personalities are more desirable within the investigated organization concerning recruits. Results also indicate that the socialization process, rather than an applied Person-Organization fit, might have a larger significance for a perceived congruence between personal and organizational values.
