How human resource managers reflect about recruiting diversity : A study with vignettes (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att få ökad förståelse för hur personalansvariga vid olika företag resonerar kring att rekrytera personer med olika behov. Personalansvariga från sex små och medelstora organisationer deltog i studien och representerade olika sektorer i arbetslivet. För att lättare kunna prata fritt om ämnet så valdes vinjetter som verktyg. Vinjetterna representerade fyra personer med olika behov och förutsättningar: kvinna med utländsk bakgrund, man med funktionshinder, ensamstående mamma och äldre man. Analysen av intervjuerna genomfördes med en fenomenologisk analysmetod, kallad tematisk analys. Inom det gemensamma fenomenet "Reflektioner vid rekrytering" definierades sex aspekter för de fyra vinjetterna, exempelvis Kunskap, Språk och Människosyn. Av den tematiska analysen av intervjuerna fann man bland annat att personalansvariga ofta hade svårt att integrera sina egna värderingar kring etnicitet, funktionshinder, jämställdhet och ålder med organisationens och samhällets värderingar. Det framkom även att personalansvariga upplever ett ökat behov av stöd från myndigheter för att lättare kunna erbjuda personer med olika behov en anställning. Slutligen framkom det även att kvinnor och män fortfarande bedöms olika.

Abstract [en]

The aim with this study was to get a better understanding of how human resource managers reflect about recruiting persons with special needs. Human resource managers from six small and midsize organizations participated in the study and represented different sectors of working life. Vignettes was chosen as a tool to make it easier to talk about the subject. The vignettes represented four persons with special needs and pre-conditions: woman with foreign background, man with disability, single mother and elderly man. A phenomenological method for analysis called thematic analysis was used to analyze the interviews. Within the mutual phenomenon "Reflections about recruiting", six different aspects was defined for the four vignettes. For example: Knowledge, Language and View of man. The thematic analysis of the interviews showed that human resource managers often found it difficult to integrate their own personal values about ethnicity, disability, equality and age, with the values of the organization and the values of society. It was also apparent that the human resource managers required more support from authorities to make it easier to offer employment to persons with special needs. Finally, it also emerged that women and men are being judged differently.
