Job satisfaction and motivation of preschool teachers : basis for a qualitative work (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att få en förståelse hur förskollärare motiveras till sitt arbete. Vilka faktorer ökar respektive minskar motivation på arbetsplatsen, samt vilken betydelse har arbetets utformande för motivation och arbetstillfredsställelse? Studien utgår ifrån Herzberg (1993) tvåfaktors teori kring motivation samt Hackman och Oldmans The Job Characteristics Model (Robbins & Judge, 2007) som förklarar att arbetets upplägg kan ses som grund för hur motiverad personal är. Studien har genomförts med en kvalitativ ansats utifrån semistrukturerade intervjuer. Sex stycken förskollärare har intervjuats kring upplevelsen huruvida arbetstillfredsställelse och motivation infinner sig. Resultat visar att som en primär grund till arbetsstillfredsställelse ligger goda relationer till arbetskamraterna. Resultat visar även att barnens utveckling ligger som en grund gentemot hur intervjupersonerna motiveras i sin yrkesroll. Barnens utveckling samt det sociala stödet motiverar intervjupersonerna till fortsatt ansträngning och därmed till att stanna kvar på sin arbetsplats. Förutom positiva faktorer visar resultat på hämmande faktorer hos motivation. Så som för lite tid till planering samt för lite pedagogiska diskussioner. Vidare anser intervjupersonerna att för mycket ansvar och höga krav i förhållande till de resurser de har att tillhandahålla hämmar. Resultaten har bearbetats utefter Herzbergs (1993) tvåfaktorsteori rörande motivation och arbetstillfredsställelse. Arbetets utformande har bearbetats utifrån Hackman och Oldmans (Robbins & Judge, 2007) teori.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study is to gain an understanding how preschool teachers motivates to their work. What factors increases or reduces the motivation in the workplace, and what is the significance of the work design for motivation and job satisfaction? The study was based on Herzberg (1993) two factor theory on motivation and Hackman and Oldmans The Job Characteristics Model (Robbins & Judge, 2007) explaining that the work arrangement can be seen as the basis of how motivated the personal is. The study was conducted using a qualitative approach based on semi-structured interviews. Six preschool teachers were interviewed about the experience whether job satisfaction and motivation arises. Results show that as a primary basis for job satisfaction is a good relationship with colleagues. Results also show that children's development is as a basis for the respondents motivation in their professional. The children developing and the social support motivate the respondents to continue their effort and also motivates them to remain in the workplace. Besides positive factors results show inhibitory factors of motivation. Things such as to little time for planning and for educational discussions. Furthermore, the interviews think that too much responsibility and high demands in relation to the resources they have to provide is also something that inhibition their motivation. The results have been processed with Herzberg (1993) two factors theory on motivation and job satisfaction. The design of work has been compared to Hackman and Oldman (Robbins & Judge, 2007) theory.
