Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att utvärdera arbetsmotivation på företaget Norstedts Juridik och att ge underlag för förbättringsarbete. Utvärderingen gjordes med hjälp av en modell för arbetsmotivation, som konstruerades med grund i teori och tidigare forskning. Modellen innefattade åtta dimensioner som tillsammans antogs utgöra arbetsmotivation. Dessa dimensioner var variation, autonomi, signifikans, feedback, utvecklingsmöjligheter, tillhörighet och lojalitet, lön och belöningssystem samt work- life balance. Dimensionerna analyserades i förhållande till de tre bakgrundsvariablerna kön, anställningstid och arbetsenhet och resultaten behandlades i statistikprogrammet SPSS. En kvantitativ studie genomfördes med hjälp av en enkätundersökning.

Resultatet visade att arbetsmotivationen på Norstedts Juridik i allmänhet är hög. Högst medelvärde har dimensionerna autonomi och signifikans. Därefter följer tillhörighet och lojalitet samt feedback. Lägst medelvärden har dimensionerna work- life balance och utvecklingsmöjligheter. I en separat fråga rangordnade medarbetarna på Norstedts Juridik dimensionerna autonomi, utvecklingsmöjligheter och work- life balance som viktigast.

I analysen framkom skillnader i upplevd arbetsmotivation mellan olika grupper på företaget. Fyra signifikanta samband framkom: anställningstid påverkar upplevd utvecklingsmöjlighet och arbetsenhet påverkar upplevd feedback, upplevd tillhörighet och lojalitet samt upplevd work- life balance. Bakgrundsvariabeln kön påverkade inte arbetsmotivationen. Med hjälp av de fyra sambanden kunde rekommendationer göras för riktade insatser i arbetet med att ytterligare förbättra medarbetarbetarnas arbetsmotivation.

Abstract [en]

This thesis aimed to evaluate work motivation at Norstedts Juridik, a Swedish publishing house. The evaluation was based on a proprietary model, which was built upon theory and previous research. The model design contained eight dimensions adopted to give a complete picture of work motivation. The dimensions were variation, autonomy, significance, feedback, opportunities for development, organizational commitment and work- life balance. The analyses of responses from 127 employees of Norstedts Juridik were analyzed along gender, length of employment and business unit.

The result indicated an elevated level of work motivation at Norstedts Juridik. The dimensions autonomy and significance had the highest mean values, followed by organizational commitment and feedback. The lowest mean values were found on the dimensions work- life balance and opportunities for development. In a separate question, the employees at Norstedts Juridik were asked to rate the importance of the dimensions. The analysis showed that the dimensions rated as most important were autonomy, opportunities for development and work- life balance.

The result also showed differences in experienced work motivation within the company. Four significant correlations were revealed; length of employment affects experienced opportunities for development and business unit affects feedback, organizational commitment and work- life balance. Work motivation was not affected by gender. The four correlations became the basis for recommendations on how to improve working conditions even further at Norstedts Juridik.
