Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka om en ökad upplevelse av trakasserier i arbetslivet ger en ökad självskattad (o) hälsa. Vidare undersöker studien eventuella skillnader mellan män och kvinnor. Studien genomfördes genom en internetbaserad enkät som skickades ut till 420 stycken medarbetare på en större organisation. Enkäten baserades på mätinstrumenten Harassment Scale (Savicki, Cooley och Gjesvolds, 2003) och The Karolinska Exhaustion Scale (KES) (Saboonchi, Perski & Grossi, 2012). Studiens huvudresultat visade att trakasserier påverkar den självskattade (o) hälsan inom samtliga delområden(kognitiv utmattning, störd sömn, överdriven trötthet, fysiska symptom, lättretlighet och negativa känslor) av (o)hälsan. Studien visade även att männens självskattade (o) hälsa påverkades starkare av trakasserier än vad kvinnorna påverkades inom alla förutom ett delområde.
