You are the main character of your life, or? : A qualitative study on women´s experiences of empowerment on women-dominated workplaces (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrunden till denna studie är att främja kvinnor i arbetslivet och finna metoder att förhindra ohälsa och sjukskrivningar, samt att belysa kvinnors upplevelser av empowerment-processer i närområdet gällande deras arbetssituationer. Syftet med denna kvalitativa studie är att undersöka vad som stärker kvinnor i sin yrkesroll. Har kvinnor möjlighet att ingå i empowerment-processer och påverka sin kompetensutveckling? Upplever kvinnor maktlöshet på de kvinnodominerade arbetsplatserna? Visionen om det idealiska arbetet där organisation och medarbetare prioriteras likvärdigt är human relation teorin i närhet där organisation och medarbetare behöver varandra. Sju arbetsplatser är representerade med femton informanter som intervjuades med en hermeneutisk ansats och tolkas genom IPA-modellen. Resultatet visade skillnader på de olika arbetsplatserna som gav empowerment dimensionerna egenmakt, maktlöshet och stärkande genom kompetensutveckling. Där mer kunskap ger mer makt.

Abstract [en]

The background of this study is to promote women in working life and to find methods for preventing ill health and sick leave, as well as highlighting women's experiences of empowerment processes in their area regarding their work situations. The purpose of this qualitative study is to investigate what strengthens women in their professional role. Do women have the opportunity to participate in empowerment processes and influence their skills development? Do women experience powerlessness in the women-dominated workplaces? The vision of the ideal work in which organization and employees are prioritized equally is the human relation theory where organization and employees need each other. Seven workplaces are represented by fifteen informants interviewed with a hermeneutic approach and interpreted through the IPA model. The result showed differences in the different workplaces that gave empowerment the dimensions of empowerment, powerlessness and strengthening through skills development. Where more knowledge gives more power.
