Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna kvalitativa studie var att undersöka chefers upplevelse av den egna psykosociala arbetsmiljön, särskilt frågan om den arbetsrelaterade stressen. Åtta linjechefer, fyra kvinnor och fyra män, intervjuades och besvarade frågor kring den egna upplevda arbetsrelaterade stressen utifrån följande områden; (1) Faktorer som bidrar till arbetsrelaterad stress; (2) Hur stress yttras samt; (3) Faktorer som kan minska arbetsrelaterad stress. Resultaten visade att samtliga chefer hade upplevt en negativ arbetsrelaterad stress som ledde till konsekvenser för både arbetsliv och privatliv. Mot bakgrund av detta är slutsatsen att organisationen i fråga bör se över chefers arbetsrelaterade stress inom den psykosociala arbetsmiljön för att på så vis förbättra förutsättningar för ett långsiktigt och hållbart ledarskap.

The aim was to examine managers perception of their own psychosocial work environment, especially in the case of the issue of work-related stress. Eight line managers, four men and four women, were interviewed and answered questions about their own perceived work-related stress based on the following issues; (1) Factors that contributes to work-related stress; (2) How stress is expressed and; (3) Factors that can reduce work-related stress. The result showed that all managers had experienced a negative work-related stress which led to consequences both for work and in personal life. Against this background the conclusion is that the organization should review the work-related stress in the psychosocial work environment among managers to provide better conditions for long-term and sustainable leadership.
