Employees’ Experience of Leadership During an Organizational Change in a Municipality in Central Sweden (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate the employees' experience of the role leadership has had for their sense of affinity to the organization during an organizational change and the role the leadership has had for their attitude towards that change. The study is based on six interviews of employees who previously worked on two separate administrations and who, at the time of the interview, were merged into one sector. The study suggested that the respondents felt that the leadership has had a role in how they experienced affinity towards the organization and their attitude toward the organizational change. This was because the employees experienced an ambiguity in the objectives of the change, that communication between the managers and employees had been perceived as deficient and that the employees had not experienced participation in the change process. The study also suggested that it could be beneficial for the management to work on establishing a new collective identity in the merged sector in order to increase the sense of cohesion between the former two separate administrations.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka medarbetarnas upplevelse av vilken roll ledarskapet haft för deras känsla av samhörighet med organisationen under en organisationsförändring samt vilken roll ledarskapet har haft för deras inställning till organisationsförändringen. Undersökningen har baserats på sex intervjuer av medarbetare som tidigare arbetat på två separata förvaltningar och som vid intervjutillfället slagits ihop till en sektor. Studien antydde att respondenterna upplevde att ledarskapet hade en roll i hur de upplevde samhörighetskänslan till organisationen samt för deras attityd till organisationsförändringen. Detta genom att de anställda upplevde en otydlighet i målsättningen i förändringen, att kommunikationen mellan cheferna och medarbetarna hade upplevts som bristfällig samt att medarbetarna inte hade upplevt delaktighet i förändringen. Studien antydde även att det kunde varit till gagn om ledningen hade arbetat med att upprätta en ny kollektiv identitet på den sammanslagna sektorn för att öka känslan av samhörigheten mellan de tidigare två separata förvaltningarna.
