Can increased development, work engagement and job satisfaction increase the employee's intention to stay in the workplace? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Organisationer strävar efter att behålla kompetens inom arbetsplatsen för att fortsätta vara konkurrenskraftiga på dagens arbetsmarknad. Studien utgick från social exchange theory (SET) och Job Demands-Resources-modellen (JD-R). Hypoteser grundades utifrån positiva samband mellan kompetensutveckling (KU), arbetsengagemang (AE), arbetstillfredsställelse (AT) och avsikt att stanna (AS).

Syftet med studien var att undersöka sambanden mellan kompetensutveckling, arbetsengagemang, arbetstillfredsställelse och avsikt att stanna på arbetsplatsen. Vidare undersöktes vilken av dessa variabler som var mest avgörande för arbetstagarens motivation till att stanna på arbetsplatsen.

Deltagarna i studien (N 56) besvarade ett enkätformulär som avsågs mäta KU, AE, AT och AS. Enkäten konstruerades från tidigare validerade mätinstrument.

Resultatanalysen genomfördes med hjälp av Spearmans rangkorrelationsanalys som visade att samtliga variabler korrelerade högt med varandra och visade statistisk signifikans (p ≤ .001).

Slutsatsen i studien var att alla variabler korrelerade med varandra, och att arbetsengagemang var den variabel visade starkast samband med att stanna på arbetsplatsen.

Abstract [en]

Organizations strive to maintain competence in the workplace in order to continue to be competitive in today's labor market. The study was based on social exchange theory (SET) and Job Demands-Resources (JD-R). Hypotheses were based on positive correlations between competence development (KU), work engagement (AE), job satisfaction (AT) and intention to stay (AS).

The purpose of the study was to investigate the links between competence development, work engagement, job satisfaction and the intention to stay in the workplace. Furthermore, the study investigated which of these variables was most crucial for the employee's motivation to stay in the workplace.

The participants in the study (N 56) answered a questionnaire intended to measure KU, AE, AT and AS. The survey questions were constructed from previously validated measuring instruments.

The results analysis was carried out using Spearman's rank correlation analysis, which showed that all variables correlated highly with each other and showed statistical significance (p ≤ .001).

The conclusion in the study was that all variables, correlated with each other, and that work involvement was the variable that showed the strongest correlation with intent to stay.
