Job satisfaction among officials in the steel industry : a comparison in gender, age and period of employment. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna kvantitativa studie var att undersöka om skillnad fanns bland tjänstemän inom stålindustrin avseende arbetstillfredsställelse i kön, ålder och anställningstid samt om interaktionseffekter fanns mellan de tre variablerna. Arbetstillfredsställelsen mättes genom en webbenkät i Google formulär utifrån utvalda dimensioner från mätinstrumentet Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire 2 (COPSOQ 2). Dessa var arbetstillfredsställelsen med arbetet i helhet, ledningskvalitet, socialt stöd från överordnade, socialt stöd från kollegor samt social gemenskap. Enkäten skickades ut av HR-avdelningen via mail till alla 584 tjänstemän på stålverket, 321 av dessa valde att delta i undersökningen vilket motsvarar en svarsfrekvens på 55 %. I resultatet korrelerade alla dimensioner med varandra och slogs därför ihop till en variabel, total arbetstillfredsställelse. Ingen skillnad fanns i kön och ålder medan anställningstid visade signifikanta skillnader där arbetstillfredsställelsen sjunker ju längre man varit anställd. Inga signifikanta interaktionseffekter kunde urskiljas.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this quantitative study was to examine differences in gender, age and period of employment in job satisfaction. The study also examined interaction effects between the three independent variables. The study was conducted on officials at a workplace in the steel industry in Sweden. A survey was constructed in Google forms based on five selected dimensions from Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire 2 (COPSOQ 2) that measured job satisfaction. The dimensions were the overall job satisfaction with work, quality of leadership, social support from superiors, social support from colleagues and social relations. All 584 officials were invited to participate where 321 responded to the survey, which corresponds to a response rate of 55%. In the result, all dimensions were found to correlate with each other and were therefore combined into one variable, total job satisfaction. There was no significant difference in sex or age, while period of employment had a negative relationship with job satisfaction. No significant interaction effects could be distinguished.
