Perceived work motivation and work satisfaction : Among technicians and pre-school teachers (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den här studien genomfördes för att undersöka om det fanns några skillnader mellan två olika yrkesgrupper i den upplevda arbetsmotivationen (i form av autonomi, kompetens och samhörighet) samt den upplevda arbetstillfredsställelsen (i form av inre, yttre och generell arbetstillfredsställelse). De etablerade mätverktygen Basic need satisfaction at work scale samt Minnesota satisfaction questionnaire användes för att undersöka dessa upplevelser av arbetsmotivation och arbetstillfredsställelse. Studien undersökte även om det fanns några åldersskillnader i respondenternas upplevelser. Studiens syfte var också att undersöka om det fanns några samband mellan arbetsmotivation och arbetstillfredsställelse. Yrkesgrupperna som undersöktes var från ett teknikföretag och en förskoleverksamhet. I enkätundersökningen deltog 34 respondenter, i åldrarna 22-63 år. Av respondenterna var 21 kvinnor och 13 män.

Resultatet visade att det inte fanns någon skillnad mellan de två yrkesgrupperna i upplevd arbetsmotivation och arbetstillfredsställelse. Däremot visade resultatet att det fanns en viss skillnad mellan åldersgrupperna 1 (22-35 år) och 2 (36-49 år) inom samhörighet. Åldersgrupp 2 visade en högre upplevd samhörighet, som innebär individers behov av att känna gemenskap med andra. Vidare visade studiens resultat att det fanns positiva statistiska signifikanta samband mellan den generella arbetsmotivationen och arbetstillfredsställelsen. Det fanns även positiva signifikanta samband mellan inre arbetstillfredsställelse och samtliga delskalor inom arbetsmotivation (samhörighet, autonomi och kompetens). Även generell arbetstillfredsställelse korrelerade positivt signifikant med alla dessa delskalor. Det betyder att ju högre upplevd inre arbetstillfredsställelse desto högre upplevelse av delskalorna inom arbetsmotivation, detta gällde även för den generella arbetstillfredsställelsen och delskalorna i arbetsmotivation.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine if there were any differences between two various occupational groups in their perceived work motivation (in the subscales autonomy, competence, and relatedness), and the perceived work satisfaction (in the subscales intrinsic, extrinsic, and general work satisfaction). The established questionnaires Basic need satisfaction at work scale, and Minnesota satisfaction questionnaire, were used to examine the perceived work motivation and work satisfaction. This study also examined if there were any age differences in the respondents' experiences, and if there were any correlations between work motivation and work satisfaction. The examined occupational groups were from one technology company, and one pre-school. There were 34 respondents, between 22-63 years, who participated in the study. Among the respondents there were 21 women and 13 men.

The result showed no differences among the occupational groups in the perceived work motivation or work satisfaction. There were however some difference in the perceived relatedness among age groups 1 (22-35 years) and 2 (36-49 years). The age group 2 showed a higher perceived relatedness, which refers to individuals' needs to relate with others. The study found positive correlations between the general work motivation and the general work satisfaction, and there were also significant positive correlations between intrinsic work satisfaction and all subscales within work motivation (autonomy, competence and relatedness). General work satisfaction also correlated positively and significantly with all subscales within work motivation. This means that the higher perceived intrinsic work satisfaction, the higher the perceived autonomy, competence and relatedness. This also applied to perceived general work satisfaction and the subscales within work motivation.
