Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att utifrån ett socialpsykologiskt- och relationellt perspektiv, skapa en djupare förståelse och förklaring för hur medarbetarna på kundservice "En väg in" i Varbergs kommun upplevt denna organisationsförändring. Urvalet bestod av sex medarbetare och två personer ur ledningsgruppen. En kvalitativ metod med semistrukturerade intervjuer har använts, samt en hermeneutisk ansats. För att analyseraoch tolka det empiriska materialet har tidigare forskning och vetenskapliga artiklar valts ut, samt teorierna Jacobsens (2013) förändringsledarskap och motstånd, Maslows behovstrappa (Aronsson m.fl. 2012), Herzbergs tvåfaktorsteori (Aronsson m.fl. 2012, Herzberg [1968]/2003) och McCelland motivationsteori om de mänskliga behoven (Aronsson m.fl. 2012) som kompletteras med, Scheffs (1994) sociala band och differentiering. Det mest centrala som framkommit i studien är betydelsen av bristande kommunikation, delaktighet och kontroll. Samt att medarbetarna haft olika inställningar till förändringen och att avdelningen ej har hunnit skapa en gemensam organisationskultur. Yrkesrollerna hämmar medarbetarna att skapa starka sociala band med varandra.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is that from a social psychological - and relational perspective, create a deeper understanding and explanation of how the employees of customer service "En väg in" in Varberg municipality experienced this organizational change. The sample consisted of six employees and two individuals from the management team. Qualitative approaches with semi structured interviews were used, as well as a hermeneutical approach. In order to analyze and interpret the empirical material previous research and scientific articles were selected and the theories Jacobsen (2013), change management and resistance, Maslow's hierarchy of needs (Aronsson et al 2012), Herzberg two-factor theory (Aronsson et al 2012, Herzberg [1968] / 2003) and McClelland's motivation theory of human needs (Aronsson et al 2012), supplemented by, Scheff (1994) social bonds and differentiation. The most central that emerged in the results is the importance of lack of communication, participation and control. And that the employees had different settings to the change and that the department has not had the time to create a mutual organizational culture. Professional roles inhibit employees to create strong social bonds with each other.
