Small business owners and stress : A qualitative study aiming to examine what stresses female small business owners at work as well as what might compensate potential stress (English)
Abstract [sv]

Sjukskrivningarna i samhället har ökat betydligt det senaste året. Stress i arbetet är en av orsakerna till detta och statistik visar att det främst är kvinnor som drabbas. Då majoriteten av företagen i Sverige består av småföretag samt att allt fler kvinnor väljer att starta eget, väcktes en nyfikenhet av att undersöka stressorsaker hos denna kategori. Därmed är syftet med studien att undersöka vad som kan stressa kvinnliga småföretagare i arbetet samt vad som kan kompensera denna eventuella stress. Vi vill även undersöka hur småföretagare sammantaget upplever stress när stressfaktorer och kompenserande faktorer vägts emot varandra. För att försöka finna svar på syftet utfördes en kvalitativ studie baserad på åtta intervjuer med kvinnliga småföretagare. I dessa intervjuer kunde flera orsaker till stress identifieras. Vidare identifierades även faktorer som verkar kunna kompensera den stress som småföretagarna utsätts för i arbetet. Resultatet visar att intervjupersonerna inte upplever att den arbetsrelaterade stressen är så stor, att det leder till ohälsa. Studien har resulterat i en modell som visar att det bör finnas en balans mellan de faktorer som orsakar stress och de som kompenserar stressen.

Abstract [en]

The number of people on sick leave has increased significantly in the past year. One of the

causes is stress at work and statistics show that mainly women are affected. As the majority of

companies in Sweden are small enterprises and as more and more women opt to start their

own businesses, we became interested in examining what causes stress for them. Therefore

the purpose of this study is to examine what stresses female small business owners at work as

well as what might compensate potential stress. We also wanted to investigate to what extent

they are stressed due to work. In order to find answers to the causes a qualitative study based

on eight interviews with female small business owners was carried out. Based on these

interviews several causes of stress could be identified. Factors that seem to be able to

compensate for the work-related stress that small business owners are exposed to could also

be identified. The results show that the respondents do not feel that the work-related stress is

so great that it is unhealthy. The study has resulted in a model showing that there should be a

balance between the factors that cause stress and those which compensate for the stress.
