Abstract [sv]

Digitaliseringen i samhället har bidragit till utvecklade teknologier där den dagliga kommunikationen blivit mer digital och det har förändrat samhället vi lever i. Covid-19-pandemin har tvingat organisationer till att stänga ner sina arbetsplatser och ta till tvingande åtgärder för att minska smittspridningen. Åtgärderna har resulterat i ett påtvingat distansarbete där arbetet sker digitalt för medarbetarna. Tidigare forskningen kring påtvingat distansarbete under covid-19 har fokuserats på hur distansarbete påverkar medarbetarnas produktivitet ocheffektivitet. Få studier har gjorts med avseende på hur påtvingat distansarbete påverkar medarbetarnas arbetsmotivation och privatliv.

Syftet med studien är att undersöka relationen mellan påtvingat distansarbete och arbetsmotivation hos medarbetare. Studien bygger på en kvalitativ metod där det empiriska materialet består av fem semistrukturerade intervjuer som har genomförts på en organisation i västra Sverige. Studien finner att det finns olika faktorer som påverkar arbetsmotivationen där resultatet visar att påtvingat distansarbete till viss del påverkar arbetsmotivationen positivt. Resultatet redovisar även att balansen mellan arbetsliv och privatliv har varit både positiv och negativ under påtvingat distansarbete där personliga förutsättningar har legat till grund för variationen.

Abstract [en]

The digitalization in society has contributed to developed technologies where daily communication has become more digital and it has changed the society, we live in. The covid-19 pandemic has forced organizations to close their workplaces and take action to reduce the spread of the virus. The actions have resulted in forced teleworking where the daily work is done digitally by the workers. Previous research about forced telework during covid-19 has focused on how telework affects the workers productivity and efficiency. Few studies have been conducted with regards to how forced teleworking affects the workers work motivation and work-life balance.

The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between work motivation and forced teleworking. The study is based on a qualitative research method. The empirical materials consist of five semi-structured interviews that have been conducted on an organization in west Sweden. The Study finds that there are different factors that influence work motivation where the results show that forced teleworking has to some extent had a positive effect on work motivation. The result also shows that work-life balance has been both positive and negative during forced teleworking, where personal preferences have been the main reason for the variation.
