Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats var att utifrån Berglunds (2001) fyra idealtypiska attityder undersöka vilka attityder andraårselever på gymnasiet hade till sitt kommande arbetsliv, med samma utgångspunkt ämnade vi också att undersöka vilka attityder arbetsgivare ville se vid en nyrekrytering. Med attityder till arbete avsågs individens värderingar av vad som var viktigt med arbete. De fyra idealtypiska attityderna innefattade instrumentell-, altruistisk-, individualistisk-, och materialistisk attityd. Det första urvalet bestod av 103 andraårselever på gymnasiet fördelade över el- och energiprogram och samhällsprogram. Det andra urvalet bestod av 23 strategiskt valda arbetsgivare fördelade mellan både offentlig- och privat sektor. Resultatet av vår kvantitativa undersökning visade att den dominerande attityden bland eleverna var den materialistiska attityden, både som sammanhållen attityd och som attitydkombination. Bland arbetsgivarna visade vår kvantitativa undersökning att den attityd som premierades var den individualistiska attityden, en attityd som endast återfanns bland samhällseleverna. Undersökningen visade också att det fanns tendenser till att el- och energielever hade en mer instrumentell attityd än samhällselever. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper was to draw on Berglund's (2001) four ideal typical attitudes, to examine which attitudes senior students in high school had towards their future working life, with the same starting point we also intended to examine which attitudes employers wanted to see when recruiting. With attitudes towards work meaning the individuals values of what was important with work. The four ideal typical attitudes included instrumental-, altruistic-, individualistic-, and a materialistic attitude. The first sample consisted of 103 senior students in high school distributed over electricity- and energy programs and studies of social science programs. The second sample consisted of 23 strategically selected employers split between both the public and private sector. The results of the study was that the dominant attitude among the students was the materialistic attitude, both as a coherent attitude and as an attitude combination. Among employers, our quantitative survey showed that the preferred attitude was the individualistic attitude, an attitude which could only be found among the social science students. The study revealed that there was a tendency for electricity and energy students to have a more instrumental attitude than the social science students.
