Abstract [sv]

Det moderna arbetslivet genomgår snabba och stora förändringar och ändrar  örutsättningarna för många yrkesgrupper i hur arbetet ska bedrivas på bästa och mest effektiva sätt. Detta får konsekvenser för olika yrkesgruppers arbetssituationer. En yrkesgrupp som inte har fått ett allt för nämnvärt fokus i forskningen kring förändrade arbetssituationer är HR-medarbetare. Syftet med den här studien är att öka förståelsen för hur HR-medarbetare upplever och hanterar sin arbetssituation utifrån arbetskrav och arbetsresurser. Tre frågeställningar har utformats för att omfamna och konkretisera syftet ytterligare. Studien baseras på fem utvalda respondenter, som arbetar som HR-generalister eller HR Business Partners. Studien har genomförts med en kvalitativ forskningsmetod i form av intervjuer och har utgått från en abduktiv ansats.

Studien påvisar att det finns olika uppfattningar mellan HR-medarbetare om vilka resurser som anses viktiga i arbetet. Studien har även visat på att HR-medarbetare ställs inför höga arbetskrav i form av framför allt hög arbetsbelastning och stora rollkonflikter. Resultatet  visar att HR-medarbetarna vanligtvis hanterar svåra arbetssituationer genom problemfokuserade hanteringsstrategier.
