Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka hur montörer som arbetat länge med monotona arbetsuppgifter upplever sitt arbete i förhållande till känslan av kompetens, samhörighet och autonomi, samt vad de tycker kan förbättras för att det ska uppfyllas i större utsträckning. Sex intervjuer genomfördes och materialet analyserades med hjälp av en tematisk analys. I studien framkom att alla respondenterna ansåg att det är viktigt att ha kompetens för att kunna utföra sina arbetsuppgifter och för organisationens utveckling. Kompetens utvecklades med hjälp av tydliga riktlinjer inom organisationen men skulle kunna vidareutvecklas genom fler utbildningar samt utöka karriärmöjligheterna internt. Samhörigheten ansågs vara stark inom arbetslaget men den skulle kunna stärkas ytterligare mellan arbetsgrupperna. Resultatet visade på att respondenterna upplevde att de inte har en känsla av autonomi i sitt arbete och att det är svårt att påverka sina arbetsuppgifter. Det visar sig även i tidigare studier att yrken som exempelvis montörer vanligtvis brukar vara hårt styrda och därmed svåra att förändra.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate how employees, in this case assemblers, who have been working with monotonous tasks are experiencing their work in terms of competence, belonging, autonomy and what improvements they think could increase these factors to a greater extent. Six interviews were conducted and the material was analysed through thematic analysis. In this study, all six respondents believed that competence is important to successfully carry out their tasks as for the development of the organisation. Competence was developed through distinct guidelines within the organisation, but to advance the development the organisation could offer more education and possibilities for promotions. The level of belonging was considered high, but the respondents also called for more kinds of activities together with the other work groups to increase it further. Moreover, the respondents find the level of autonomy to be low and the possibilities to affect anything within their tasks to be insufficient. The results of this study corresponds with previous studies on this subject and assemblers in particular find their job to be strictly controlled and changes difficult to bring through.
