Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to try to get an overall image of how participation is constituted in the organization of AMA, a Human Service Organization (HSO) that is part of the Vasteras municipality.  With focus on mainly participation but also communication and leadership the goal was to find out more about how the governing parts of the organization was able to communicate and create participation amongst their employees. Did the message come across? Using a triangulation method including interviews, surveys and observation hopefully this question would be answered along with trying to depict an overall image of the participation within the organization. The results indicated that there were both differences as well as similarities between the employees and the management with regards to how they experienced participation. A surprising result was that the geographical location was found to have an impact on how the staff perceived participation. The employees that had the longest distance to their boss were the ones who didn’t feel that they participated as much within the organization.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att försöka få en övergripande bild av hur delaktighet konstitueras inom organisationen AMA som utgör en del av Västerås stads verksamhet. Med fokus på främst delaktighet men också kommunikation och ledarskap var målet att ta reda på mer om hur de styrande delarna av organisationen kunde kommunicera och skapa delaktighet bland sina anställda. Har budskapet nått fram? Genom en typ av triangulering som innefattade intervjuer, enkäter och observationer söktes svaret på denna fråga samt eftersträvades en så fullständig bild som möjligt av delaktighetsbegreppet inom organisationen. Resultaten tydde på att det finns både skillnader och likheter mellan de anställda och ledningens uppfattning av delaktigheten inom organisationen och ett överraskande resultat var att den geografiska spridningen visade sig ha betydelse för upplevelsen av delaktighet. De anställda som var mest utspridda och hade längst avstånd till sin chef kände sig också minst delaktiga.
