Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to achieve a greater understanding of how the social workers at the family unit in one of Stockholm municipalities comprehend the work environment at the workplace. Our aim is also to find out how the work environment can affect the health of the social workers in the form of their wellbeing and comfort at the workplace. In order to answer our purpose we conducted interviews of all social workers at the family unit in one of Stockholm municipalities that describe how they experience the work-environment in the workplace and how it influences their health.  We have analyzed the interview material in a thematic analysis based on three theoretical perspectives; SOC, claim – control - support and Human relations. We have also coupled the interview material to the background chapter in this thesis that describes how a good working environment should be structured.  The chosen method characterizes an abductive process. Our finding shows a relation between work-environment and health. This is evidence for that all social workers at the family unit experiences that the work- environment affects their health in the form of wellbeing and comfort. Furthermore, it appears that the unity among the group at work is perceived as an important factor within the work-environment as it has an influence on the health of social workers. In the discussion part, we highlight possible formulated questions that have not had space earlier in the thesis.
