The importance of work motivation and its impact on work engagement among white collar workers within the industrial sector (English)
Abstract [sv]

Arbetsengagemang har beskrivits som ett positivt arbetsrelaterat tillstånd. Med förståelse för medarbetarnas arbetsmotivation kan arbetsengagemanget öka och riskerna med negativ stress undvikas. Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka vilka motivationstyper som till störst del förklarade dimensionerna i arbetsengagemang hos tjänstemän. Genom en kvantitativ studie har tre regressionsanalyser genomförts. Som mätinstrument utformades en digital enkät baserad på Work Extrinsic and Intrinsic Motivation Scale (WEIMS) och Utrecht Work Engagement Scale (UWES-9). Enkäten skickades via mail till 199 tjänstemän vid en avdelning hos ett företag i industrisektorn. Datainsamlingen genererade 124 enkätsvar som analyserades. Resultaten visade att inre motivation och omotivation var de starkaste prediktorerna för samtliga dimensioner i arbetsengagemang. Integrerad- och identifierad reglering hade signifikant betydelse för dimensionen uppslukande medan integrerad reglering också var signifikant för hängivenhet. Anställda som tilldelas eget ansvar och självbestämmande har högre känsla av inre motivation och känner högre arbetsengagemang än individer som inte får fatta egna beslut.

Abstract [en]

Work engagement has been described as a positive work related state of mind. With understanding for work motivation work engagement may increase among coworkers and risks of negative stress can be avoided. The purpose of this quantitative study was to examine which motivation types that most explain the dimensions in work engagement. A digital questionnaire was designed based on Work Extrinsic and Intrinsic Motivation Scale (WEIMS) and Utrecht Work Engagement Scale (UWES-9). The questionnaire was sent by e-mail to 199 white collar workers at a company in the industrial sector. The collected data included 124 answers and was analysed by three regression analysis. Our findings showed that intrinsic motivation and amotivation was the strongest predictors for all dimensions in work engagement. Integrated- and identified regulation showed significant importance for the dimension absorption while integrated regulation also showed significant importance for the dimension dedication. Employees who are self-determined and given own responsibility have both higher feeling of intrinsic motivation and work engagement than individuals who does not get the opportunity to make own decisions.
