Job satisfaction related to personality and social relations at work (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka om det finns samband mellan arbetstrivsel och personlighet samt arbetstrivsel och kvaliteten på sociala relationer i arbetet. För att mäta arbetstrivseln och sociala relationer på arbetet formulerades sex frågor som var avsedda att mäta i vilken grad deltagarna trivdes på arbetet och hur de trivdes i sin arbetsgrupp. För att mäta personlighet användes Ten-Item Personality Inventory som är ett personlighetstest utvecklat utifrån femfaktormodellen som innefattar fem olika personlighetsdrag. Det insamlade datamaterialet bestod av 57 besvarade enkäter från undersköterskor på tre kommunala arbetsplatser. Resultatet visade på ett signifikant positivt samband mellan arbetstrivsel och sociala relationer på arbetet. Inga signifikanta samband mellan personlighetsdrag och arbetstrivsel kunde konstateras vilket skiljer sig från tidigare forskning, men utifrån Hemphills riktlinjer erhölls intressanta samband.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether job satisfaction correlates with personality and the quality of social relationships at work. To measure job satisfaction and social relationships at work, six questions were designed to measure the degree to which participants enjoyed their work and how they enjoyed their work group. To measure the personality the Ten-Item Personality Inventory was used which is a personality test developed from the Five Factor Model. The collected data consisted of 57 completed surveys from nurse assistants in three municipal workplaces. The results showed a clear positive relationship between job satisfaction and social relations at work.

No significant associations between personality and job satisfaction was found which differs from previous research, but based on Hemphill's guidelines interesting relationships were found.
