Abstract [sv]

I denna studie studeras en organisation som förmedlar sina värderingar explicit.Många organisationer inom såväl privat som offentlig sektor väljer offentliggöra vilka värderingar som präglar organisationens arbete. Vad som sällan framgår är vad dessa värderingar innebär för den anställde. Det är mot denna bakgrund som studiens syfte arbetats fram. Studiens syfte är att undersöka vilken funktion organisationens explicita värderingar fyller i det vardagliga arbetet.

I studien har sex intervjuer genomförts med anställda inom en organisation som gjort sina värderingar publika. Ett av resultaten från intervjuerna visade att organisationens explicita värderingar utgör de värden organisationen vill bli förknippad med. De anställda förväntas använda sig av värderingarna som en vägledning i arbetet och organisationens omvärld kan se värderingarna som en guide vad gäller förväntningar på mötet med organisationen. En av studiens slutsatser visar därmed att den kanske viktigaste funktionen värderingarna utgör är av en styrande karaktär. Anställda formas till att anta ett sådant beteende som kan härledas till värderingarna.

Abstract [en]

This study examined an organization that expresses its values explicitly. Many organizations in both public and private sector choose to express the values that the organization would like to be associated with. What is rarely clear is what these values mean for the employee. It is against this background that the purpose of the study took its shape. The purpose of this study is to investigate which function the organization’s explicit values fill in the everyday work.

The authors of this study have conducted six interviews with employees in an organization that has made their values public. One of the results from the interviews shows that the organizational values stand for what the organization wants to be associated with. Employees are expected to use the values as a guide in the everyday work and the organization's surroundings can see the values as a guide in terms of expectations for their meeting with the organization. One of the study findings therefore prove that the most important feature of the organizational values is represented as a control variable. Employees in the organization are shaped to adapt such behaviour that could be related to the organizational values.
