Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Empowerment handlar om att stärka personalens motivation och arbetstillfredsställelse genom att bland annat delegera ansvar och att dela information inom företaget. Detta kan ske med hjälp av olika verktyg varav belöningssystem är ett av de mest effektivaste verktygen inom empowerment. Denna studie söker efter att belysa hur belöningssystem kan påverka personalens motivation i arbetet.

 

Metod: Studien har ett hermeneutiskt och socialkonstruktivistiskt perspektiv. Vi har använt oss utav en kvalitativ forskningsstrategi med semistrukturerade intervjuer för att samla empirisk data. Den teoretiska referensramen består av sekundär data från tidigare forskning. Vår forskningsprocess utgår ifrån den teoretiska referensramen, vi söker efter logiska paralleller mellan teori och empirisk data.

 

Resultat & slutsats: Vårt resultat visar både likheter och motsägelser mellan befintlig teori och vår empiriska undersökning. Vårt empiriska resultat har stärkt antagandet om att belöningssystem stärker personalens motivation. Vårt resultat avviker dock från befintlig teori angående att icke-finansiella belöningssystem bäst främjar personalens motivation.

 

Förslag till fortsatt forskning: Vi rekommenderar att undersöka hur företag kan använda sig av icke-finansiella belöningssystem för att bibehålla sin personal motiverad.

 

Uppsatsens bidrag: Vi bedömning är att andra studenter kan finna vårt resultat intressant för framtida studier med tanke på att vårt empiriska resultat har avvikit från befintlig teori. Vi anser även att resultatet kan vara intressant för en företagsledning.

Abstract [en]

Aim: Empowerment deals with increasing employee motivation and job satisfaction by delegating responsibility and sharing information within the organization. This can be done through various tools including reward systems, which is one of the most effective tools within empowerment. This study is searching for understanding around how reward systems can influence employee motivation.

 

Method: The study takes a hermeneutic and social constructionist perspective. We conducted a qualitative research strategy using semi-structured interviews to collect the empirical data. The theoretical framework consists of secondary data from researchers who have previously touched the subject. We sought logical parallels between the theory and the empirical data.

 

Result & Conclusions: Our study has found both similarities and differences between existing theory and our interpretation of the empirical data. Our empirical results have strengthened the assumption that reward systems reinforce staff motivation. However, our results differ from existing theory which discuss which reward systems best encourages increased motivation. According to the prevailing theory, should non-financial rewards motivate more than financial rewards.

 

Suggestions for future research: We recommend examining how companies can use non-financial reward systems and still keep their staff motivated.

 

Contribution of the thesis: we believe that other students may find this interesting for future studies as our empirical results differed from the existing theory. We also believe that the results can be interesting for an enterprise.

 

Key words: Empowerment, reward systems, motivation, total reward and decentralization.
