Abstract [sv]

Syftet i studien var att undersöka skillnader mellan ensamarbetare- och grupparbetares upplevda socialt stöd på arbetsplatsen och arbetstillfredsställelse samt skillnader mellan män och kvinnor. Vidare i studien undersöktes samband mellan följande dimensioner: värderande stöd, informativt stöd, instrumentell stöd, emotionell stöd, krav, kontroll, socialt stöd totalt, ålder , år inom yrket, anställningstid på nuvarande arbetsplats och arbetstillfredsställelse. Totalt deltog 91 arbetare, 44 som anses ensamarbete och 47 som anses utföra grupparbete varav totalt var 54 kvinnor och 37 män. Den totala medelåldern var 43 år. Metoden som användes var kvantitativ och bestod av SKOPs tidigare enkätfrågor. Tillsammans med enkäten följde fem frågor rörande kön, yrke, ålder, anställningstid och antal år på samma arbetsplats. Resultatet visade att de som utför grupparbete upplever mer instrumentellt stöd än de som utför ensamarbete. Gällande genusskillnader fanns det inga signifikanta skillnader. Vidare hittades ett positivt samband hittades mellan socialt stöd och arbetstillfredsställelse samt mellan socialt stöd- krav och kontroll. Dessa resultat ger stöd för krav- kontroll och stödmodellen samt att arbetstillfredsställelse kan uppnås om socialt stöd befrämjas på arbetsplatsen.

The purpose of this study was to examine differences in social support and job satisfaction between workers like work alone and in groups and compare differences between men and women. This study also examined if there was any correlations between following eight dimensions: appraisal support, informational support, instrumental support, emotional support, demands, control, social support, age, years within same profession, length of service at current workplace and job satisfaction. 91 workers participated in the study whereof 44 was lone workers and 47 was group workers, 54 of them were women and 37 were men. The average age was 43 years. A quantitative method was used and a questionnaire consisting of SKOPs previous survey questions together with five questions regarding, gender, profession, age, years within same profession and length of service at current workplace. The result of the study showed that group workers experience more of instrumental support then lone workers. Regarding gender no significant results were found.  Furthermore the study showed positive correlations between social support and job satisfaction and between social support- demand and control. These results gives support to the demand- control and support model and that job satisfaction can be achieved if social support is encouraged at the workplace.
