Abstract [en]

The purpose of this quantitative study was to examine if there were any differences regarding work motivation, stress and role conflict among middle managers depending on gender and length of service. The psychosocial environment is defined by inner work motivation, stress and role conflict. Another purpose with the study was to examine whether there were any interactions between gender and length of work. The study was conducted at a larger industrial company in Sweden where a total of 44 middle managers took part in the study by answering a paper survey. The measuring instruments used were Basic Need Satisfaction at workscale (BNS) measured inner work motivation and the instrument COPSOQ measured stress and role conflict. The result showed a significant difference regarding length of work and relatedness whereas those with a longer length of work estimated a higher estimation compared to those with a shorter length of work. The result showed no more differences regarding length of work and no differences depending on gender and therefore neither any interaction effects.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna kvantitativa studie var att undersöka om det förelåg några skillnader i mellanchefers upplevelse av den psykosociala arbetsmiljön beroende av kön och anställningstid. Den psykosociala arbetsmiljön definieras här utifrån inre arbetsmotivation, stress och rollkonflikter. Ytterligare syfte var att undersöka om någon interaktionseffekt fanns mellan kön och anställningstid. Studien genomfördes på ett större industriföretag i Mellansverige med totalt 44 mellanchefer som deltog genom att besvara en pappersenkät. Mätinstrument som användes var Basic Need Satisfaction at workscale (BNS) som mätte inre arbetsmotivation samt instrumentet COPSOQ som mätte stress och rollkonflikter. Resultatet visade på en signifikant skillnad gällande anställningstid och samhörighet, där de med en längre anställningstid skattade upplevelsen av samhörighet högre jämfört med de med kortare anställningstid. Resultatet visade inga fler skillnader gällande anställningstid samt inga skillnader beroende av kön och därmed inte heller någon interaktionseffekt.
