Abstract [en]

This conceptual paper presents a Living Lab model of how university, societyand organisation may strengthen the co-creation capacity on regional and international level to improve quality in higher education. Our conclusions are that successful co-creation between universities and society/organizations is built on mutual contribution, knowledge sharing as well as engagement from all involved. Here, living lab methods can help improve quality. Further, from a university perspective, a challenge is to keep the engagement in the project from all involved, and to assure an equal status between stakeholders. This calls fora skill in how to conduct project in co-creation with several partners. A skill that has to be taught to students as well as to teachers and researchers.

Abstract [en]

According to leading researchers such as by Leka & Cox, Psychosocial risk management is recommended as the way to proactively and systematically ensure that work factors in the organizational and social work environment lead to wellbeing and engagement instead of strain, stress and ultimately exhaustion. Companies in Sweden scored the highest among companies in Europe on the psychosocial risk management index in 2012. In spite of this, work related illnesses attributed to organizational and social factors in the workplace have increased by 91% since 2011. Theoretically, if Sweden is very good at psychosocial risk management then the occupational illness levels related to the organizational and social work environment should be decreasing and not steadily on the rise. This paper presents findings from a study of how large companies in Sweden work with the psychosocial work environment one year after the introduction of organizational and social work environment legislation in Sweden in March 2016. Method – Telephone interviews about the psychosocial work environment were carried out with five large companies acknowledged to be good employers in Sweden; Volvo Car AB, Swedish Public Service Television company, AB Volvo, Microsoft and SKF. Informants belonging to the HR department on a global or national level in Sweden completed the interview. The interviews were transcribed during the interview and the accuracy of the content approved by each company before being included in the data set. Preliminary Results – The analysis of the results are ongoing. Preliminary findings suggest that; companies express a willingness to work systematically with the psychosocial work environment in a way similar to the physical work environment; that the introduction of legislation instigated some actions, and that the employee satisfaction survey is used as a form of risk analysis tool. Further, companies differ in whether they focus on the individual or the work environment when working to alleviate the negative health effects of work related stress after it has been detected. The findings are discussed in relation to work factors, psychosocial risk management and finally proactive & reactive tools and methods used. Preliminary Conclusions – The study provides an insight into what companies are actually doing when they are working with the psychosocial work environment. The contribution to science is increasing knowledge about how companies may be following all or some of the risk management process and what actions and tools they are using to do it.

Abstract [sv]

Session 8Stress och psykosociala faktorerBeskrivning av en pågående studie: Kan ett systematiskt arbete med psykosociala riskbedömningar påverka psykosocialt säkerhetsklimat?Rachael Berglund, Ulrika Hultgren & Tomas BackströmStressrelaterad ohälsa i arbetslivet kostar Europa €617 miljard om året och påverkar 40 miljoner enligt International Labour Organisation (ILO). Det psykosociala säkerhetsklimatet (PSK) lig-ger till grund för hur en organisation eller arbetsgrupp verkligen mår. Enligt lagstiftningen idag i Europa ska alla arbetsplatser arbeta förebyggande för att eliminera eller minska identifierade riskfaktorer, vilket inkluderar psykosociala risker. Denna studie har som syfte att undersöka om ett systematiskt arbete med riskbedömningar av den psykosociala arbetsmiljön kan påverka det psykosociala säkerhetsklimatet, välbefinnande och arbetets effektivitet i arbetsgrupper. Två glo-bala industriföretag i Sverige ingår i studien. Interventionen riktar sig mot ledare och förväntas påverka cirka 200 medarbetare per företag. Undersökningen har en kvasiexperimentell design med kontrollgrupp. Enkäter som mäter PSK, stressorer, välbefinnande och effektivetet används vid tre tidpunkter: en mätning före interventionen, en efter och en mätning efter ytterligare sex månader. Interventionen innefattar tre faser. Under fas 1 utbildas ledarna i psykosocial säker-het, PSK, riskbedömningar och team-coaching. Vid fas 2 arbetar ledaren tillsammans med sin arbetsgrupp för att upprätta och följa en handlingsplan med syfte att eliminera eller minska arbetsgruppens prioriterade risker. Fas 3 överlappar delvis med fas 2 och innehåller fyra möten med fokus på psykosocial säkerhet där chefen träffar sina peers för chefsstöd och för att stärka coachningsbeteenden. Studien är unik eftersom PSK tidigare inte har används tillsammans med Health and Safety Executives’s management standards och dessutom för att team coachning används i ett systematiskt arbete med psykosociala riskbedömningar.
