Why do officials work overtime? : A quantitative study of officials without overtime compensation in the staffing and recruitment industry (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studien syftade till att undersöka anledningar till att tjänstepersonal utan extra övertidsersättning arbetar övertid inom rekryterings- och bemanningsbranschen. Prediktorerna arbetskrav, arbetets plats i ens liv, inre och yttre arbetsmotivation samt harmonisk och manisk passion för arbetet undersöktes mot utfallsvariabeln övertidstimmar. Studien genomfördes som en enkät som skickades ut digitalt genom Google Forms till 16 bemannings- och rekryteringsföretag. QPS Nordic behandlade frågor om arbetskrav, arbetets plats i ens liv samt inre och yttre arbetsmotiv medan PTWS behandlade frågor om harmonisk och manisk passion för arbetet. Resultatet visade att arbetskrav predicerade arbetade övertidstimmar. Korrelationen var positiv vilket innebar att arbetskrav ökade med andelen övertid. Ingen skillnad observerades i övriga prediktorer. Studiens slutsats var att det var arbetskrav som fick tjänstepersonal inom rekryterings- och bemanningsbranschen att arbeta övertid, vilket arbetsgivare bör vara uppmärksamma på i och med de hälsokonsekvenser som kan vara till följd av övertidsarbete.

Abstract [en]

The study aimed to investigate reasons to work overtime among employees without overtime compensation in the staffing and recruitment industry depending on work demands, the place of work in one’s life, internal and external working motivation and harmonious and obsessive passion toward work. The study was conducted as a digital survey sent to 16 companies. QPS Nordic measured work demands, the place of work in one’s life and internal and external working motivation. PTWS measured harmonious and obsessive passion toward work. The present study showed that work demands predicted overtime hours. No difference was observed in the other predictors. The conclusion of the study was that work demands made employees in the staffing and recruitment industry work overtime hours and that employers should pay attention to this regarding the health implications resulting from working overtime.
