Andra delen var att undersökachefers motivationsstrategier somanvänds för att motivera sinaanställda. I detta sammanhanghar anställdes uppfattning av destrategier somanvänds av cheferna också undersökts.Det skapades två struktureradefrågeformulär med öppnafrågor, en för cheferoch en för deanställda. Resultatenfrån enkätstudien visar attflesta motivations-faktorer låg på en medelgrad,utom motivationsfaktorn feedbackoch delfaktorn yttre belöningsom liggerpå en låg grad i denundersökta arbetsmiljön. Resultatet visarflera signifikantakorrelationer mellan motivationsfaktorerna.Frånde struktureradefrågeformulären visar resultatetatt alla chefer motiverar sina anställda ochchefer har både lika och olikamotivationsstrategier i sinarbetsplats. Resultatet visar att fåanställda som deltog i studien upplever chefens motivationsstrategier, för attunderlätta fler eventuella upplevda motivationsstrategierfrån chefer till arbetstagaren,görs antagandetatt detta kan åtgärdas genom att chefen ökar sin närvaro bland personal.

Abstract [en]

This research had two objectives. First, to investigate the level of the motivational factors in the workplace and the possible relationships between the motivational factors. The questionnaire was based on questions from QPSNordic, Locke and Latham's (1990) questionnaire and occupational self-efficacy scale (OSES). Total of one hundred workers (n=100) participated in the survey. Second, to examine the strategies managers used to motivate their employees. In this context, employee’s perception of the strategies used by the managers was also investigated. Two structured questionnaire with open ended questions were created, one for the managers and one for the employees. The results from the survey study shows that almost all motivating factors lay on a medium level, except the motivating factor feedback and the part factor external reward lies on a low level in the investigated workplace. The result shows several significant correlations between the motivational factors. From the structured questionnaire the result shows that all managers are motivating their employee´s and the managers have both equal and different motivating strategies in their workplace. The results showed that few employees experienced manager’s motivation strategies, in order to facilitate more any perceived motivational strategies from managers to employee´s; the assumption is this can be corrected by increasing the manager's presence.
