Abstract [en]

In purpose to investigate what highly educated employees born from 1981 and forward found motivating this basic qualitative study is based on interviews regarding nine individual’s perceptions about their work and employers. Nine interviews were conducted with individuals born between 1981 to 1994 regarding motivation at work, which led to six themes being presented, “Developing”, “Feeling secure”, “Good leadership”, “Experience of autonomy”, “Identifying with values” and “Thrive in the organizational structure”. The results were analyzed based on previous research regarding intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and studies of individuals born between 1980 and late 1990. It could be concluded that the participants preferred development, challenge and leadership to permanent employment and high wages.

Abstract [sv]

I syfte att undersöka vad som motiverar högutbildade arbetstagare födda från 1981 och framåt har den här grundläggande kvalitativa studien baserats på intervjuer med individer om deras uppfattning om arbete och arbetsgivare. Nio personer födda mellan 1981 och 1994 blev intervjuade gällande upplevelser av motivation i arbetet varav sex teman lyftes fram, “Att utvecklas”, “Känna trygghet”, “Ett bra ledarskap”, “Upplevelse av autonomi”, “Identifiera sig med värderingar” och “Trivas i organisationsstrukturen”. Resultaten analyserades utifrån tidigare forskning om intern och extern motivation och studier av individer födda från 1980 och framåt. Det kunde antas att studiens deltagare värderade utveckling, utmaning och ledarskap framför en fast anställning och hög lön.
