From passage to a flexible meeting place : A qualitative study about the professional's experience of a renovation (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur förändringen med den nyrenoverade loungen upplevs och vad som påverkar upplevelsen i samband med förändring i den fysiska arbetsmiljön. Med ett strategiskt urval valdes 12 anställda. Kraven var att respondenterna skulle ha olika befattningar samt att de både sett hur det ser ut innan förändringen och efter. Det gjordes semistrukturerade intervjuer på respondenternas arbetsplats och det insamlade materialet analyserades sedan i en tematisk analys.

Resultatet visade att informationen har varit väl uttänkt och att ledningen varit rakt på sak. Då personalen anser att man behöver all information för att kunna bli öppen till förändring upplevdes det som positivt att ledningen var rakt på sak i beslutsfattningen. Det visades även att inspiration från omvärlden påverkar personalens öppenhet till förändring. Detta kan bero på att moderniseringen av ytan fått bolaget att ses som modernt och hängt med i utvecklingen samt att man skapat en känsla av stolthet genom att kunder har reagerat positivt. Det har upplevts att den nya loungen har skapat nya flexibla arbetsytor och nya mötesplatser som kan användas för både formella och informella tillfällen.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study is to investigate how the staff experience the change in the physical work environment with the newly renovated lounge and what affects the staff's experience with the change in the physical work environment. Twelve employees with different professions were selected. The strategic requirements where that they have different professions and have seen how it looked before the change and after. Semi-structured interviews were performed at the respondent's workplace and the collected material was then analyzed with a thematic analysis.

The result showed that the information has been well thought out and that the managers has been straightforward. The staff felt that they needed all the information to be open to change and it was considered positive that the managers was straight forward in the decision making process. It was also shown that inspiration from the outside world affects the staff's openness to change. This may be because the modernization of the surface has made the company seen as modern and kept up with the development, but also that a sense of pride has been created by having customers reacted positively. It has been perceived that the new lounge has created new flexible workspaces and new meeting places that can be used for both formal and informal occasions.
