Work motivation : A quantitative study on how job satisfaction and feedback affect the motivation of personal assistants (English)
Abstract [sv]

I denna kvantitativa studie var syftet att undersöka hur arbetstillfredsställelse samt feedback samverkar med arbetsmotivation hos yrkesgruppen personliga assistenter i kommunal verksamhet.

Urvalet i denna studie bestod av personliga assistenter som arbetar i en liten kommun i Västra Götaland. I denna undersökning användes tre enkäter som delades ut till de 85 assistenter som var anställda, och det genererade 34 svar i slutändan varav 23 var kvinnor och 11 var män. Respondenternas ålder i undersökningen sträckte sig mellan 20 – 63 år, där medelåldern var 40,74 år. Enkäterna som användes som underlag var Basic Need Satisfaction at Work Scale (BNS), Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) samt Feedback Orientation Scale (FOS).

Resultatet av analyserna visade en positiv korrelation mellan arbetstillfredsställelse och arbetsmotivation men ingen korrelation mellan arbetsmotivation och feedback. Enligt undersökningens analyser predicerade feedback inte heller arbetsmotivation medan arbetstillfredsställelse predicerade arbetsmotivation. Det fanns inga skillnader i resultatet hur män och kvinnor upplevde arbetstillfredsställelse, arbetsmotivation eller feedback.
