Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet med denna studie är att belysa chefens roll i förhållande till personalomsättning inom en säljande organisation, utifrån dimensioner av person-environment fit och role stress.

 

Metod: Utifrån studiens syfte har en kvalitativ metod använts. Data har samlats in genom semistrukturerade intervjuer. Materialet har analyserats och redovisats med hjälp av well-grounded theory.

 

Resultat & slutsats: Denna studie visar på chefers förståelse för vikten av att personer de anställer ska passa in i yrket och organisationen. De rekryterar främst efter personlighet och möjlighet att passa in i gruppen. Chefernas synsätt skiljer sig gällande överbelastning och stress. Det är svårt med gränsdragningen mellan privatliv och yrkesroll.

 

Förslag till fortsatt forskning: En intressant utgångspunkt för framtida forskning kan vara att jämföra om chefers uppfattning av de dimensioner vi undersökt överensstämmer med hur de anställda upplever dem.

 

Uppsatsens bidrag: Studien belyser dimensioner som påvisats ha samband med personalomsättning. Vi bidrar med chefens roll utifrån dessa, till skillnad från tidigare forskning som utgått från anställdas perspektiv.

 

Nyckelord: Personalomsättning, person-job fit, person-organization fit, role overload.

Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim of this study is to highlight the manager’s role related to turnover within a selling organization, by dimensions of person-environment fit and role stress.

 

Method: A qualitative method has been used, based on the aim of this study. Data has been collected through semi structured interviews. The empirical data has been analyzed and presented using the well-grounded theory.

 

Result & Conclusions: This study shows the managers understanding of the importance to hire people which fit both the job and the organization. They mainly hire people based on their personality and how they fit within the group. However, their vision is different regarding the role overload and stress. Managers have a hard time to draw a line between the private life and work.

 

Suggestions for future research: An interesting starting-point for future research could be to compare if the managers perception of our dimensions is consistent with the perceptions of the employees.

 

Contribution of the thesis: This study highlights dimensions, which have a significant relation to employee turnover. Our contribution is the manager’s perspective of these dimensions, compared to prior research, which has the employee’s perspective.

 

Key words: Employee turnover, person-job fit, person-organization fit, role overload.
