“After all, recovery becomes more important every year” : Employees' views of aspects that promote a sustainable working life (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka vad medarbetare på ett Mellansvenskt fastighetsbolag upplever som främjande för ett hållbart arbetsliv. Data samlades in via nio semistrukturerade intervjuer och analyserades genom en induktiv tematisk analys. Analysen resulterade i fem huvudteman varav två hade två till tre underteman. Studiens resultat visade att respondenterna upplevde att arbetets utformning, arbetsbelastningen, det sociala stödet – kopplat både till utförandet av arbetet samt till mer informella jobbsammanhang som raster – samt möjligheten till balans och återhämtning var viktigt för ett hållbart arbetsliv. Det framkom även att det fanns en förändring över tid när det gällde medvetenheten hos respondenterna kring den egna hälsan om man såg till början av deras arbetsliv, nutid och framtid. Av resultatet går att utläsa att psykosociala arbetsmiljöaspekter samt arbetets organisation var av stor vikt för ett hållbart arbetsliv för respondenterna. Vidare framgick även att dessa aspekter inte var statiska utan ändrades över tid.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study was to examine what employees at a property company in Mid-Sweden experience as promoting a sustainable working life. Data were collected through nine semi-structured interviews and were analyzed through an inductive thematic analysis. The analysis resulted in five main themes, two of which had two to three sub-themes. The results of the study showed that the respondents felt that the work design, the workload, the social support – linked to both carrying out the work and to more informal work contexts such as breaks – as well as the possibility of balance and recovery were important for a sustainable working life. In addition, there was a change in the respondents’ awareness of their health when looking at the beginning of their working life, the present and the future. From the results, it can be deduced that psychological working conditions as well as work organization were of a great importance for a sustainable working life to the respondents. Furthermore, it also emerged that these aspects were not static but changed over time.
