The perception of the work environment among consultants in an employment agency that provides staff for warehouse, workshops and industries (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bemanningsbranschen i Sverige är expansiv. Arbetet som konsult innebär ständiga anpassningar till nya miljöer. Arbetsmiljön består av psykosociala och fysiska aspekter och idag är problemen inom psykosociala arbetsmiljön mer uttalade än på 1990-talet. Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur personer som arbetar på ett bemanningsföretag inom lager, verkstad och industri, uppfattar att deras fysiska- och psykosociala arbetsmiljö påverkar arbetsutförande och välbefinnande på arbetet samt om demografiska faktorer inverkar på hur arbetsmiljön uppfattas. Studien är en tvärsnittsstudie, där bedömningsinstrumentet Work Environment Impact Scale (WEIS) har använts. I studien har 30 konsulter inom bemanningsbranschen intervjuats. Resultatet visar att de faktorer som uppfattas mest stödjande för utförandet av arbetet är ”Medlemskap i arbetsgrupp”, ”Interaktion med andra” samt ”Förväntningar i utförandet av arbetet”. De faktorer som uppfattades som mest hindrande för utförandet av arbetet var ”Arbetsuppgiftens krav”, ”Förmåner” samt ”Samspel med överordnade”. Sammanfattningsvis visade sig gemenskapen med andra, såväl med medarbetare som med kunder vara mest stödjande. De hindrande faktorerna utgjordes främst av ett bristande ledarskap från bemanningsföretagets överordnade, i form av stöd och uppskattning gentemot konsulterna.

Abstract [en]

The Swedish employment agency industry is expanding. Working as a consultant implies constant adjustments to new environments. The work environment consists of physical and psychosocial factors. Today, psychosocial problems in the work environment are more complex than in the 1990s. The aim of the study is to examine how people working in an employment agency that provides staff for warehouse, workshops and industries, perceive that their physical– and psychosocial work environment affects work performance and wellbeing at work and whether demographical factors influence how the work environment is perceived. The study is a crosssectional study, and the assessment tool Work Environment Impact Scale (WEIS) has been applied. In the study 30 consultants in an employment agency industry were interviewed. The result shows that environmental factors perceived as most supportive of work performance and wellbeing at work were ”Work group membership”, ”Interaction with others” and ”Work role standards”. The environmental factors of work that were perceived as most limiting of work performance, satisfaction, and wellbeing at work were “Task demands”, “Rewards” and “Supervisor interaction”. In conclusion, fellowship with others - co-workers as well as customers - was shown to be the most supportive environmental factor. The limiting factors were mainly failing leadership from the employment agency's superior, and lack of support and display of appreciation towards the consultants.
