Abstract [en]

Research question: How do employees perceive how managerial coordination impacts their job satisfaction? 

Purpose: The main purpose in this study is to explore the effects of managerial coordination on employee job satisfaction on Information technology (IT) companies in Sweden during the COVID-19 pandemic. The inclusion and need of remote working and digitalisation encouraged the need to have more coordination within the companies for better job satisfaction. Therefore, this study aims to shed light on how employees are feeling/felt about the level of coordination they receive through the lenses of their job satisfaction. Method: Quantitative methods of data analysis were used in the research, and the data was analysed using SPSS to identify the correlations between the two variables in the study.

Conclusion: This study was undertaken because of the researchers’ interest in determining the impacts of the level of perceived managerial coordination on employees’ job satisfaction. It was based on the employees’ perceptions of the level of coordination they received during the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, the authors of this study provide insight into the impacts of perceived managerial coordination on employee job satisfaction. According to the findings, employees were most satisfied with their jobs. Most job dissatisfaction was found in the areas of salary and promotions.  Organisations should implement an equitable system of promotions and offer competitive and livable wages in their organisation to address these areas of dissatisfaction.
