Abstract [en]

This study aimed to examine the experience of work motivation among young adults between the ages of 20-25 years old. Eight qualitative interviews were held with a semi-structured method. The guide for the interviews conducted work motivation as a theme with underlying questions based on themes, previously research and theoretical starting points, the aim of the study and issue. The guide for the interview contained eight main issues with general follow up questions. A thematic analysis were used to bring out four different themes which were the importance of having good colleagues, to develop, to get feedback and salary. The result of the study showed that young adults are motivated by both intern and extern motivational factors according to Herzberg’s motivation theory. This is something that previous studies did not show according to Inceoglu, Segers and Bartram (2012) who claims in their study that young adults are more motivated by intern motivational factors than extern motivational factors. This study therefore highlights the impact of age among individuals and that the age can have influence when it comes to the experienced work motivation.

Abstract [sv]

Denna studie har till syfte att undersöka upplevelsen av arbetsmotivation bland unga vuxna iåldrarna 20-25 år. Åtta kvalitativa intervjuer har genomförts med en semistruktureradintervjumetod. Intervjuguiden innehöll temat arbetsmotivation med underliggande frågorbaserat utifrån teman, tidigare forskning samt teoretiska utgångspunkter, studiens syfte samtfrågeställning. Intervjuguiden innehöll åtta huvudfrågor med generella följdfrågor. Entematisk analys har sedan använts för att koda fram fyra olika teman, vilket blev vikten av attha bra kollegor, att utvecklas, att få feedback och lön. Resultatet visade på att unga vuxnamotiveras av både inre och yttre motivationsfaktorer enligt Herzbergs motivationsteori, vilkettidigare forskning inte visat på då Inceoglu, Segers och Bartram (2012) menar att unga vuxnamotiveras mer av interna faktorer än externa faktorer. Denna studie belyser därmedbetydelsen av att individers ålder har inflytande för den upplevda arbetsmotivationen.
