    Harder Than You Think – Immigrant Labor Market Integration in Agricultural Sector2023In: Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies, E-ISSN 2245-0157, Vol. 13, no 1, p. 27-48Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The recent forced migration to Europe has created more challenges for the labor market integration. However, the Swedish government encourages unemployed immigrants to seek employment in the farming, gardening, and forestry industries. Thus, this article focuses on the matching process in the Swedish agricultural sector by using an exploratory, qualitative, in-depth interview with representatives involved in the matching process. Immigrants experience challenges of Swedish language proficiency, lacking a driving license and adapting to new cultures in the workplace, while employers attribute challenges of effective hiring process and the absence of evidence of immigrants’ work experience. Furthermore, the employment service offices struggle with scant knowledge of agricultural employment that needs to be combined with limited contact with employers and the bureaucratic delays caused by requirements of qualifications validation. The paper concludes with a Labour Market Matching Model, which focuses on critical aspects before, during, and after the matching process.

    Temporary Employment and the Future Labor Market Status2017In: Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies, E-ISSN 2245-0157, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 27-48Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article is to describe and explain the development of temporary employment in Sweden between 1992 and 2010, and to investigate the effect of temporary employment for individuals' futurecareer on the labor market. The article analyzes temporary employees' status transitions on the labor market using Swedish Labour Force Survey (LFS) data for the period 1992-2010. Each cohort consists of 2-year panels and focuses on changes between the first and last measuring points. The findings indicate that the specific type of temporary employment is crucial as regards whether or not it constitutes a stepping-stone toward permanent employment. The chances are greater in the case of, for example, substitutes, but are considerably less in the case of on-call employment. Certain types of temporary employment thus seem to be used by the employer to screen the employability of the employee, while others are used for achieving flexibility.

    Addressing Online Harassment in Swedish Journalism: An Institutional Perspective on Management2023In: Nordic Journal of Working Life Studies, E-ISSN 2245-0157, Vol. 13, no 4, p. 89-110Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study scrutinizes Swedish news organizations’ strategies to navigate the psychosocial implications of online harassment toward journalists, drawing from interviews with 14 media managers across local and national media outlets. Employing institutional theory, the findings highlight managerial prioritization of physical safety, while concurrently undervaluing the mental strain induced by subtle online harassment, viewed as an occupational hazard intrinsic to the profession. Consequently, their comprehension of work environment responsibilities is shaped through their cognitive assimilation, influenced by their sociocultural environment and industry affiliation, which precludes them from recognizing online harassment as an organizational challenge. This, in turn, hinders a systematic and reflexive approach toward managing the multifaceted manifestations of online harassment. The significance of the study transcends merely identifying barriers, offering insights into the underlying institutional structures and practices that perpetuate them. These insights are pivotal for devising strategies that mitigate the detrimental impacts of online harassment in journalism. © (2023), (Roskilde University). All Rights Reserved.
