Abstract [sv]

För att lyckas i dagens moderna organisationer krävs det att man är effektiv, nytänkande och framförallt produktiv. Men vad är det då som gör att individer presterar olika? Tidigare studier visar på att individuell arbetsprestation samvarierar med emotionell intelligens (EI) samt att prestationsbaserad självkänsla (PBSE) har samband med dåliga arbetsprestationer. Utifrån denna information formades studiens frågeställning som lyder: Vilken av variablerna prestationsbaserad självkänsla och emotionell intelligens har eventuellt starkast samband med arbetsprestation? Samt hypoteserna: 1: Hög prestationsbaserad självkänsla är negativt korrelerad med låg individuell arbetsprestation. 2: Hög emotionell intelligens är positivt korrelerad med hög individuell arbetsprestation. För att undersöka studiens frågeställning utformades en enkät som delades via sociala medier och besvarades av totalt 308 deltagare. Resultatet av studien visar att den emotionella intelligensen har det starkaste sambandet med självupplevd individuell arbetsprestation, emotionell intelligens visade sig förklara 25% av variationen i delskalan "uppgiftsbaserad prestation" inom självupplevd individuell arbetsprestation. Vilket stämde överens med hypotes 2. Hög emotionell intelligens är positivt korrelerad med hög individuell arbetsprestation. Med denna vetskap kan rekryterare kanske med hjälp av EI-tester förutse arbetsprestation hos en arbetssökande redan i rekryteringsstadiet? Studien och dess syfte är relevant för alla arbetsgivare och belyser ett ämne som vi anser borde vara centralt när man talar om hur enskilda medarbetare upplever sin arbetsprestation.

Abstract [en]

To succeed in today's modern organizations, one must be effective, innovative and above all productive. But what is it that makes individuals perform differently? Previous studies show that individual work performance correlates with emotional intelligence (EQ) and that performance-based self-esteem (PBSE) is associated with poor work performance. Based on this information, the study's question was formed which reads: Which of the variables performance-based self-esteem and emotional intelligence may have the strongest connection with work performance? And the hypotheses: 1: High performance-based self-esteem is negatively correlated with low individual work performance. 2: High emotional intelligence is positively correlated with high individual work performance. To examine the study's questions, a questionnaire was designed that was shared via social media and answered by a total of 308 participants. The results of the study show that emotional intelligence has the strongest connection with self-perceived individual work performance, emotional intelligence was found to explain 25% of the variation in the sub-scale "taskbased performance" within self-perceived individual work performance. Which was consistent with Hypothesis 2. High emotional intelligence is positively correlated with high individual work performance. With this knowledge can recruiters perhaps predict the performance of a job seeker at the recruitment stage with the help of EQ tests? The study and its purpose are relevant to all employers and highlight a topic that we believe should be central when talking about how individual employees perceive their work performance.
