Abstract [en]

Today’s housing situation is hotly debated, and housing shortage has become a key word in the debate. The problematic housing situation affects both individuals and the society. The housing crisis contributes to lock-in effects and low mobility in the housing market. A balanced housing market is a prerequisite for a well functioning economy. Gazelles have a large and crucial impact for the addition of new jobs in the Swedish economy and are thus important for Sweden’s growth. Qualified staff is important for the gazelles opportunity to grow. It is important that the housing crisis is not an obstacle for companies to recruit staff with the right competence. We formulated the following problem: How is the recruitment affected by the housing shortage for Swedish gazelle companies in the construction industry in Greater Malmö? The study’s primary purpose has been to explain and describe the eventual recruitment difficulties and competence issues that the housing shortage causing.

To create a deep understanding we have chosen a qualitative study with a deductive approach. The study’s empirical data were collected through interviews with construction companies, Sydsvenska Handelskammaren and Tillväxtverket. The theoretical framework consists of scientific articles and literature that is relevant for the study.

The results of the study show that all companies indicate competent staff as the main resource for growth. Thus, would mean that growth will be hampered unless the companies can secure the competence. The results find that the housing crisis has no impact on the recruitment possibilities, but instead there is a mismatch on the labour market.
