Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to increase the knowledge of the factors which social workers consider leads to a lower employee turnover among the social services child- and youth welfare departments. The question from where we emanated was: - What do the social workers describe as what makes them enjoy, and want to remain within the profession as a whole? The other question was: - What do the social workers describe as what makes them enjoy, and want to remain more specifically in their work place? The results are analyzed according to Antonovsky’s theory regarding KASAM and Hertzberg’s two factor theory. The study is of a qualitative nature and was performed through semi structured interviews with six social workers working with child- and youth investigations at the social services in the western part of Sweden. The result show that the factors that social workers think form a foundation for a lower employee turnover were factors linked to the leadership, the social support and the personal and professional development. The difference that was revealed in the study between the factors leading to lower employee turnover on the local work place compared to the general profession was that the salary had influence, but wasn’t the deciding factor whether you stay at your local work place but it was considered to be of a more deciding character when it comes to attracting new, and keeping the existing employees in general.
