Does the day of the meeting matter? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att belysa barnomsorgspersonals upplevelser av måndagen, mötesdagen och måndagen som mötesdag, för att öka kunskapen kring betydelsen av veckodagen, kontra mötesdagen, för sjukfrånvaron inom barnomsorgen i en kommun. En kvalitativ studie genomfördes med åtta deltagare, vilka intervjuades individuellt. Data analyserades med en grundläggande kvalitativ metod.Resultaten indikerar att sinnesstämningen under veckodagarna påverkar upplevelsen av mötesdagen, framförallt om mötesdagen är förlagd till måndagar. Sinnesstämningens veckocykel bekräftades i enlighet med tidigare forskning och indikerar ett existerande blå-måndag-fenomen. Efter bytet av mötesdag har upplevelserna av söndagen, måndagen och mötesdagen blivit positivare. Även om måndagen fortfarande känns tung upplevdes den som tyngre när den var mötesdag. Mötesdagen som sådan upplevdes värdefull men likväl lång. Några slutsatser kunde inte dras gällande veckodagens, respektive mötesdagens, betydelse för sjukfrånvaron men bytet av mötesdag tycks dock medfört positiva erfarenheter som bidragit till att arbetsveckan upplevs lättare.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to elucidate childcare staff experience of Mondays, meeting days and Mondays as meeting days. In order to increase knowledge about the importance of the weekday versus the meeting days importance for sick leave within the childcare in a municipality. A qualitative study was conducted with a total of eight participants who were interviewed individually. Data was analyzed with a Basic Qualitative Study.The result indicates that the mood during the days of the week affects the experience of meeting days, especially if the meeting take place on a Monday. The mood in the weekly time cycle is confirmed accordingly to previous research and indicates an existing blue-Monday phenomenon. After the change of meeting day the experiences of Sundays, Mondays and the meeting day has become more positive. Even if Mondays still are perceived demanding it was experienced even more demanding when it was the meeting day. The meeting day itself was experienced as valuable but still long. Some conclusions regarding the importance of the days of the week as well as the meeting days for the absenteeism could not be drawn. However a change of the meeting day seems to bring positive experiences that have contributed to the work week to perceived as less demanding.
