Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka hur personalchefer upplever sin egna psykosociala arbetsmiljö, vad det gäller arbetstillfredsställelse (motivation och kommunikation), arbetsrelaterad stress och ledarskap. En kvalitativ studie genomfördes med sju semistrukturerade intervjuer och utifrån ett grundläggande tematiskt tillvägagångsätt analyserades det insamlade materialet. Sammanfattningsvis indikerade resultaten att personalcheferna upplevde sin psykosociala arbetsmiljö som god, trots höga krav och perioder av stress.  Kontakten och arbetet med människor visades ha en stor betydelse för personalchefernas arbetstillfredsställelse. Resultatet visade också att chefserfarenheten gav goda förutsättningar för stresshantering och ledarskap.

The purpose of this study was to explore how HR managers experience their own psychosocial work environment, concerning work satisfaction (motivation and communication). A qualitative study was carried out with seven semi-structured interviews and the collected material was analyzed from a basic thematic approach. In summary, the results indicated that HR managers experienced their psychosocial work environment as good, despite high demands and periods of stress. The opportunity to have contact with, and to work with, people were of great importance to HR managers' job satisfaction. Moreover, the results showed that the experience of the manager's role provided good conditions to deal with stress and leadership.
