Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka arbetstillfredsställelse hos tjänstemän på en myndighet i Mellansverige. Självskattad arbetsbelastning och arbetskontroll utgjorde prediktorer och självskattad hälsa utfallsvariabeln med dimensionerna kognitiv utmattning, störd sömn, fysiska symptom, lättretlighet och negativa känslor. Studien genomfördes med en enkät i pappersformat, där 45 medarbetare deltog. Mätinstrumenten som användes var Job overload, Work control och Karolinska Exhaustion Scale (KES). Studiens huvudresultat visade att arbetsbelastning hade ett signifikant positivt samband med negativa känslor, i meningen att ju högre arbetsbelastning desto fler negativa känslor. Arbetskontroll visade endast på starka tendenser till signifikanta positiva samband med två av hälsodimensionerna; kognitiv utmattning och fysiska symptom. Vilket indikerade på att ju högre arbetskontroll deltagarna hade, desto högre kognitiv utmattning och flera fysiska symptom upplevde de sig ha. 

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to investigate job satisfaction among officials in an Swedish authority. Our predictors consisted of work-related load and control and the outcome variable was perceived health. Health variable involved five dimensions: cognitive exhaustion, disturbed sleep, physical symptoms, irritability and negative affect. 45 employees participated by answering a survey. The results showed that workload had a significant positive relationship with negative affect, meaning the higher workload, the more negative emotions. Work control on the other hand, did only show strong tendencies to significant positive associations with cognitive exhaustion and physical symptoms. This indicated the higher work control, the higher cognitive exhaustion and number of physical symptoms.
