Abstract [en]

It is now increasingly common for organisations to work actively with HR issues. Furthermore, it is a constant top priority for organisations to remain profitable. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether so called soft HR values, as manager’s communication skills, has an actual impact on hard values in terms of costs for the organisation. Leadership is largely characterised by emotional communication, which together with personnel costs were the main focus of the research. The study was conducted by letting store managers and department heads in shops carry out an emotion perception test and the test results were related to the store/department employee turnover and the number of sick leave hours. The results showed a strong tendency for statistical significance between emotion recognition and the predictors. This suggests that stores, which have low employee turnover and low sick leave hours, can be explained by the manager's capability in emotion perception. The study complements current research by emphasising the importance of emotionally competent managers to operate successful and profitable organisations. 

Abstract [sv]

Det är idag allt vanligare för organisationer att arbeta aktivt med HR-frågor. Dock är den största prioriteringen alltid ekonomiska lönsamheten. Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka om så kallade mjuka HR-värden, så som chefers kommunikation, har en faktisk påverkan på hårda värden i fråga om kostnader för organisationen. Ledarskap präglas till stor del av emotionell kommunikation, vilket tillsammans med personalkostnader utgjorde huvudfokus i studien. Studien genomfördes genom att låta butikschefer och avdelningschefer i butiker göra ett emotionsperceptionstest där testresultatet sedan relaterades till butikens/avdelningens personalomsättning och antal sjukskrivningstimmar. Resultatet visade en stark tendens till statistisk signifikans mellan emotionsperception och prediktorerna. Detta tyder på att butiker som har låg personalomsättning och lågt antal sjukskrivningstimmar kan förklaras med hjälp av chefens goda förmåga till emotionsperception. Studien kompletterar aktuell forskning genom att poängtera vikten av emotionellt kompetenta chefer för att driva framgångsrika och lönsamma organisationer.
