Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Motivation är viktigt för att driva en till handling vilket alla har erfarenheter av. Oavsett vad det är för handling så ligger där alltid någon form av drivkraft bakom denna. Vi fann motivationsfaktorer inom den offentliga sektorn som mycket intressant och då främst polisyrket med deras unika arbetsuppgifter. Detta gjorde att vi ville undersöka vad poliser motiveras av.

 

Problemformulering: Vilka motivationsfaktorer driver nyexaminerade poliser?

 

Syfte: Syftet med denna studie är att söka en förståelse vad det är som motiverar nyexaminerade poliser.

 

Metod: Studien som gjorts är genomförd med en kvalitativ forskningsdesign. Insamlingen av material har gjorts genom semi-strukturerade telefonintervjuer. Respondenterna bestod av nyexaminerade poliser.

 

Resultat och slutsatser: Studien visade på att de interna tillsammans med externa drivkrafterna bidrar till den högsta motivationen. Poliserna drevs i större grad av att hjälpa individer och samhället i stort, snarare än för sin egen vinning. Den externa motivationsfaktorn som efterfrågades mest var erkännande och uppskattning från kollegor och ledning.

Abstract [en]

Background: Motivation is important to push you to action which is something that everybody has experienced. Regardless what kind of action it is, there is always some kind of driving force behind it. We found motivation factors in the public sector as very interesting and especially within the police force, with their unique job assignments. This resulted in that we wanted to examine what motivates policemen.

 

Research question: What motivation factors instigate newly graduated policemen?

 

Purpose: The purpose with this study is to seek an understanding of what motivates newly graduated policemen.

 

Methodology: The study that has been done is performed with a qualitative research design. The received material has been conducted through semi-structured telephone interviews. The respondents consisted of newly graduated policemen.

 

Results and Conclusions: The study illustrates that intrinsic together with extrinsic driving forces contributes to the highest motivation effect. The policemen were driven in a higher degree when they helped individuals and the society as a hole rather than for their own interest. The extrinsic motivation factor that was most demanded was recognition and appreciation from their colleagues and by their management.
