Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka huruvida ett pilotprojekt bestående av en ny typ av

medarbetar- och lönesamtal i Sandvikens kommun givit någon effekt på rolltydlighet,

empowerment och arbetstillfredsställelse. Vidare var syftet att undersöka sambanden mellan

rolltydlighet, empowerment och arbetstillfredsställelse. En enkät besvarades av 62

förskollärare. Genom t-test undersöktes skillnaden mellan förskollärare som deltar i projektet

(N=34) och andra förskollärare (N=28) gällande dessa variabler, men inga signifikanta

skillnader kunde visas. En multivariat regressionsanalys visade i enlighet med tidigare

forskning ett samband mellan rolltydlighet och arbetstillfredsställelse, men något samband

mellan empowerment och arbetstillfredsställelse visades inte. Relationerna analyserades med

en stiganalys som visade att rolltydlighet medierar 64 % av effekten av empowerment på

arbetstillfredsställelse. Rolltydlighet förklarar 33 % av variansen i arbetstillfredsställelse och

slutsatsen är att vikten av rollförtydligande information till medarbetare är av väldigt stor

betydelse.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate whether a project with a new type of performance

appraisal in Sandviken Municipality affects role clarity, empowerment and job satisfaction.

The further aim was to investigate the relationship between role clarity, empowerment and job

satisfaction. A survey was answered by 62 preschool teachers. Student’s t-test analyzed the

difference in these variables between the preschool teachers from the project (N=34) and

other preschool teachers (N=28) but no significant differences were found. A multiple

regression analysis showed a significant relationship between role clarity and job satisfaction

in accordance with previous research, but there were no relationship between empowerment

and job satisfaction to be found. The relationships were analyzed further with a path analysis

that showed that empowerment is mediated by role clarity. Role clarity explains 33 % of the

variance in job satisfaction and the conclusion is therefore that information to the employees

containing role clarification is of great importance.
