Are you one of us? : -A qualitative research about how organizational culture affects recruitment (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet är att visa för- och nackdelar för organisationskulturens påverkan på rekryteringen hos organisationer som är präglade av organisationskultur, samt hur en organisation avgör vilken individ som passar in. Vi ämnar beskriva eventuella risker, möjligheter och begränsningar med dessa metoder för både organisation och individ.

Metodik: En flerfallsundersökning på fem organisationer inom den privata sektorn har tillämpats som undersökningsdesign med en induktiv ansats. Genom en kvalitativ metod där semi-strukturerade intervjuer har genomförts har data producerats fram.

Slutsats: Organisationskulturen präglade vad organisationerna sökte hos en kandidat mer än hur rekryteringsprocessen utformades. För att finna rätt kandidat var en realistisk företagspresentation framträdande tillsammans med utformningen av intervjun. Organisationernas rekryterade efter sina värderingar, vilka presenterades i en företagspresentation och diskuterades kring under intervjun. Fördelarna för organisationen blev minskad risk för misstolkning tillsammans med större valfrihet bland kandidater och ett verktyg för organisationen att dämpa för höga förväntningar på arbetet. Nackdelarna blev fler moment att ta ställning till vilket är resurskrävande samtidigt som flera förutsättningar krävdes för att få önskad effekt. Fanns inte rätt förutsättningar för matchningen riskerades en resurskrävande process med oförutsedda resultat.

Abstract [en]

Purpose: The purpose is to present advantages and disadvantages of how organizational culture affects the recruitment in organizations that are incused by organizational culture, and how an organization decides which individual that fits the organization. We intend to describe certain ventures, possibilities and limitations with these methods for both organization and individual.

Methodology: A more case study has been applied on five organizations within the private sector as a research design, with an inductive approach. A qualitative method has been used where semi-structured interviews have been implemented from where data has been established.

Conclusion: Organizational culture incused the recruitment by what they were looking for in an applicant rather than how it affected the recruitment process. To find the right applicant a realistic organizational presentation was prominent together with how the interview was designed. The organization recruited applicants after their values, which were presented by the organization and discussed during the interviews. The advantages were reduced risk of misinterpretation by applicants along with a greater possibility of choice and a tool for organizations to reduce too high expectations on employment. The disadvantages were more elements to examine while the process became resource demanding, while several conditions had to be fulfilled. If the right conditions couldn’t be obtained the risk was a resource demanding recruiting with an unforeseen result.
