Job Satisfaction : A comparison between industrial working women and men in two departments. (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of the present quantitative study was to examine gender differences in

perceived job satisfaction in two departments, with different work patterns, in a Swedish

manufacturing industry. The questionnaire contained 30 statements and five background

questions. The questionnaire was designed in combination of Job Satisfaction Survey (JSS),

Work demands, Social support, Control and Competence (ASK), Questionnaire for

Psychological and Social factors at Work (QPS Nordic) and Minnesota Satisfaction

Questionnaire (MSQ). Job satisfaction was measured based on the categories influence at

work, leadership, employee influence, work requirements and the physical environment. The

results of the present study showed an interaction of gender and department where the female

industrial workers, who worked with more monotonous and standardized work tasks, valued

all of the categories of job satisfaction the lowest, except for the category employee impact.

The results are believed to depend on that the women in the department had greater demands

for variety in the work.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med föreliggande kvantitativa studie var att undersöka om det fanns könsskillnader

i upplevd arbetstillfredsställelse på två avdelningar som innefattade olika

arbetsmönster på en svensk tillverkningsindustri. Enkäten innehöll 30 påståenden och fem

bakgrundsfrågor. Enkäten utformades i kombination av testen Job Satisfaction Survey (JSS),

Arbetskrav, Social stöd, Kontroll och Kompetens (ASK), Questionnaire for Psychological and

Social factors at Work (QPS Nordic) och Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ).

Arbetstillfredsställelse mättes utifrån underkategorierna inflytande i arbetet, ledarskap,

medarbetarnas inverkan, arbetskrav samt fysisk arbetsmiljö. Resultaten av föreliggande studie

visade på en interaktion av kön och avdelning. Kvinnorna, som arbetade med mer monotona

och standardiserade arbetsuppgifter, skattade lägst på alla underkategorier till arbetstillfredsställelse,

förutom på underkategorin medarbetarnas inverkan. Resultaten antas bero på att

kvinnorna på avdelningen hade större krav på variation i arbetet.
