Work-related identity and motivation among executives and employees (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka om det fanns några skillnader i identitet och motivation beroende på kön, ålder (medarbetare) och typ av tjänst (chef vs. medarbetare) där de tre typerna av arbetsrelaterad identitet (yrkesidentitet, organisations identitet och arbetsgrupp identitet) och två typer av motivation inre och yttre motivation (inre = utmaning och nöje, yttre = kompensation och erkännande) undersöktes. Resultatet visade signifikanta skillnader i organisationsidentitet och yrkesidentitet mellan chefer och medarbetare, där chefer identifierade sig mer med organisationen och sitt yrke än medarbetare. Chefer visade sig även ha en högre inre motivation (utmaning) än medarbetare. Vad det gäller gruppen medarbetare identifierade sig män i högre grad med arbetsgruppen och organisationen än vad kvinnorna gjorde.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine if there are any differences in work-related identity and work motivation depending on gender, age (employees) and type of employment (executive vs. employee) where three types of identity (professional identity, organizational identity and workgroup identity) and two types of motivation, inner and external motivation (inner=challenge and entertainment, external=compensation and recognition) were examined. The result showed significant differences in organizational identity and professional identity between executives and employees, where executives identified more with the organization and had a higher level of professional identity. Among the employees, there was a significant gender difference: men identified more with the organization and the work group than women.
