Abstract [sv]

Den kvalitativa studiens syfte var att undersöka ledarskapets betydelse för arbetsmotivationen. Tio semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes. Dessa analyserades genom en induktiv tematisk analys som resulterade i fyra huvudteman. Arbetets motivationsfaktorer, med de tillhörande underteman syftet med arbetet, frihet, utveckling och utmaning, samt lönens betydelse. Organisationsledarskap, handlade om att ha insyn och riktning, samt styrning. Chefsegenskaper beskrevs utifrån två underteman närvaro och stöd, samt tillit. Motiverande arbetsbeteende om medarbetares identifikation med organisationen. Resultaten går i linje med tidigare forskning och visar sammantaget att olika ledarskapsbeteenden upplevs influera medarbetarnas arbetsmotivation. Inre- och yttre motivationsfaktorer, samt olika ledarskapsegenskaper upplevdes också vara en väsentlig del av arbetsmotivationen.
