The induction process at Handelsbanken : A study about managing and socialisation in order to create a "handelsbankare" (English)
Abstract [sv]

Introduktion av en ny medarbetare kan ha stor betydelse för den enskilda individens framtida resultat i organisationen, vilket i sin tur påverkar även arbetsgruppens och organisationens totala resultat. Utgångspunkten för studien är arbetslivets förändrade förutsättningar, vilka har fört med sig nya former att styra medarbetare i organisationer. Detta har medfört att även introduktionen antas ha fått en mer framträdande funktion.

Denna kvalitativa studie fokuserar på att fördjupa sig i hur detta har påverkat introduktionsprocessen av nyanställda medarbetare. I kandidatuppsatsen undersöks hur Handelsbanken, genom sin introduktion av nyanställda, försöker påverka dessa att anpassa sig till organisationens normer, värderingar och arbetssätt i syfte att generera effektiva representanter för organisationen. Datan i studien har samlats in via information från organisationens hemsida, tillhandahållna dokument samt intervjuer som därefter tolkats och analyserats med hjälp av teorier om socialisering och identitetsstyrning.

Slutsatsen är att Handelsbanken använder flera olika metoder i syfte att socialisera de nyanställda in i organisationen samt att dessa, under introduktionen, stimuleras att utveckla en identitet som överensstämmer med organisationens behov. Med hjälp av dessa kulturella, formella och sociala metoder antas organisationen försöka generera vad de själva benämner som ”handelsbankare”. 

Abstract [en]

Induction of a new employee can be of the highest significance for the individuals future result within the organization, which in return influences the result of the workgroup and the organization as a whole. The basis for this study is the changing conditions in the working life, which have introduced new forms of managing the co-workers in organizations. A consequence of this can be that the induction can be assumed to have a more prominent function.

This qualitative study is focusing on immersing in how this has reflected on the induction process of newly employed co-workers. This bachelor essay is examining how Handelsbanken, through their induction of their newly employed, is trying to affect these to adapt to the companies norms, values and work procedures with the intention to generate efficient co-workers in the organization. The data for this study have been gathered thru information from the organizations homepage, provided documents and by interviewing members of the organization, this information have then been interpreted and analyzed using theories about socialization and identity regulation.

The conclusion is that Handelsbanken uses several different methods in their intention to socialize their newly employed into their organization as these, during the induction, gets stimulated to evolve an identity that correlates with the organizations requirements. With the help of these cultural, formal and social methods the organization is assumed to try to generate, what they within their organization refers to as, a “handelsbankare”.
