Abstract [sv]

Den här uppsatsen syftar till att undersöka de psykosociala påfrestningar som heltidsengagerade på studentnationer i Uppsala upplever i sitt arbete. Genom en kvalitativ datainsamling under sammanlagt åtta intervjuer med "heltidare" har deras arbetsmiljö kartlagts med fokus på arbetsmoment som de själva upplever som stressande eller påfrestande.

Analysen har sedan skett med bakgrund av tre stressmodeller: krav-/kontroll, effort-/reward och allostatic load. Med stöd av tidigare forskning av Maslach & Leiter, Asplund och Thulin Skantze. Detta har givit en bred och heltäckande uppfattning av hur de psykosociala påfrestningarna påverkar respondenternas utifrån deras egna upplevelser av sin arbetsmiljö.

Av de framkomna och analyserade resultaten har flera slutsatser uppkommit. Framför allt kan man konstatera att heltidare har ett i längden ohållbart tungt arbete sett till arbetstiderna. Samt att det finns litet eller inget utrymme för återhämtning såväl psykisk som fysisk.

Man kan även se hur resurser och befogenheter inte matchar det ansvar som många heltidare har och att det inte finns stödfunktioner i organisationen som kan kompensera för dessa brister.

Slutligen kan man konstatera att det generellt inte finns tillräckligt bra rutiner för överlämning och inskolning av nya heltidare.

Abstract [en]

This essay aims at investigating the psychosocial strains that full-timers are experiencing in their full time engagement at the student nations in Uppsala. Through a qualitative method, data has been collected during eight interviews with full-timers where the respondents have answered questions about which tasks they find the most stressing and psychosocially straining.

The analysis has been made with reference to three stress models i.e. control/demand, effort/reward and allostatic load. Also the research made by Maslach & Leiter, Asplund and Thulin Skantze has been taken into the analysis. This has given a broader understanding as to how psychosocial strains are affecting the respondents in their work.

Based on these findings, several conclusions have been made. Firstly one can state that full-timers have a very burdensome work in respect to their working hours. Especially when one considers how little time they actually have left for recovery, both physiological but also psychological.

There is also the fact that the available resources and authority doesn’t outweigh the responsibility that the full-timers have; and that there aren’t enough organizational support to balance that inequality.

Finally one can point out that one of the major issues is that the routines for introducing new full-timers on the job are generally imperfect and inadequate.
