Who are you and how do you fit in here? : A study about organizational climate, personality and how optimistically you look at the world (English)
Abstract [sv]

Utifrån medarbetarens synvinkel är organisationsklimatet tillfälligt, påverkbart och styrt av medarbetarens egen uppfattning och beskrivning. Studien avsåg därför att undersöka ifall personlighet och optimism gav förklaring till medarbetarens upplevelse av organisationsklimatet. Kvantitativ ansats var utgångspunkten för en datainsamling som genomfördes på en organisations avdelning. I studien medverkade 53 deltagare och åldersspannet var 26 till 66 år, och 81% var män. Enkäter delades ut i pappersform där SPOS-klimatskala, Femfaktormodell och optimismskala användes. Insamlad data analyserades med hjälp av korrelations- och regressionsanalys. Undersökningens mest framträdande resultat visade effekt från de olika personlighetsdragen och optimism. Medarbetare som var konfliktundvikande, tillmötesgående och hade en mer positiv inställning till livet upplevde organisationsklimatet som mera positivt. Resultatet är utmärkande för att studiens variabler inte har undersökts i relation till varandra tidigare. Studien tillför därför en ny aspekt till arbets- och organisationspsykologisk forskning. Studien indikerar att optimism kan vara en betydande faktor i framtida arbete kring organisationsklimat.

Abstract [en]

Based on co-workers' point of view, organizational climate is temporary, influential, and -ruled by members' own perception and description. The study aimed to investigating whether personality and optimism give explanation for co-workers experience of organizational climate. A quantitative approach was the basis for data collection that was conducted at an anonymous organization's department. In the study, 53 participants participated and the age range was from 26 to 66, and 81% men. The surveys were distributed in paper-form using the SPOS climate scale, The Five Factor model, and the optimism scale. The collected data was analyzed based on correlation and regression analysis. The most prominent results of the survey showed varying effects from the various personality traits and optimism. Co-workers who showed a tendency of conflict avoidance were accommodating and had a more positive attitude towards life, and had a more positive view of the organizational climate. The result is characteristic of the fact that the variables of the study have not been examined in relation to each other in the past. The study therefore adds a new aspect to occupational and organizational psychological research. The study indicates that optimism can be a significant factor in future work of the organization's climate.
