Ledarskap och psykosocial arbetsmiljö inom socialtjänstens barnavård - en kunskapsöversikt 

Leadership and psychosocial work environment in child welfare services - a scoping review 

Social workers in social services and especially in childcare have for many years been a vulnerable professional group with high staff turnover and a heavy workload. There have long been reports of increased sick leave, retention, burnout, and stress related ill health. This due to work related issues that does not seem to decrease, despite the awareness of the nature and complexity of the job. In the study, the focus has been on investigating which management, leadership and supervisor characteristics that are described in the literature impact and their impact on the working environment. A further aim of the study was to investigate potential knowledge gaps in research of leadership characteristics and their potential effect on the working environment. The results have been interpreted based on the Job Demand-Resource model, the Effort- Reward model and the Managerial Grid model. The results show that the leader's characteristics are important for social workers' health and work environment. Several factors are described to play a considerable role in why social workers choose to stay or leave their workplace. A present accessible, responsive, manager and supervisor who listens, was pictured as positively enhance health in the workplace. Personal-oriented characteristics of managers, leaders and supervisors were found to increase social workers' intention to stay at the workplace.
