Beliefs about motivation and work with quality, environment and working environment in small organisations
1999 (English)Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
Three small organisations in Sweden were studied in order to describe found motives for and against work with quality, environment and working environment among people in a small organisation. Some motives for work within the three areas mainly expressed beliefs about increased production results and increased psychological well-being of people. The work was also thought to have a positive impact on the organisation in terms of coping with changes in the surrounding. Arguments why small organisations do not work within the three areas mainly regarded decreased productivity. Lack of motivation, as well as not enough knowledge, was believed to hinder the work. Every person, at the studied organisations, seemed to be aware of why they do things at work and seemed to make individual mediation among given alternatives about work within the three areas. Dependent on to what extent the organisation had communicated goals and methods for the work, different conditions within the organisation tended to effect the prioritisation of work with quality, environment and working environment.
