Sammanfattning

Många resultat i modern arbetslivsforskning fokuserar på stress och reaktiva åtgärder samtidigt som forskning inom kreativitet och innovation främst fokuserar på vinster i ekonomi och tillväxt. Denna studie har för avsikt att undersöka medarbetarens upplevda meningsfullhet i arbetet och kreativt klimat för att finna proaktiva faktorer gällande arbetsrelaterad stress och ohälsa. Interaktiv forskningsmetod med kvantitativa inslag användes då sambandet undersöktes genom en enkätundersökning. Utifrån datainsamlingens resultat formades ett verktyg med syftet att öka det kreativa klimatet och således öka meningsfullheten i arbetet vilket leder till positiva effekter i arbetsmiljön. Resultat från enkäterna visade signifikanta samband mellan meningsfullhet i arbetet och kreativt klimat samt var och en av dimensionerna inom kreativt klimat, vilket bekräftar studiens hypoteser. Ytterligare ett signifikant samband hittades mellan arbetsfunktion och meningsfullhet i arbetet. Slutsatsen är att ett verktyg som ökar det kreativa klimatet i organisationen leder till ökad meningsfullhet i arbetet.

Abstract

Modern research in the area of work-life tends to focus on stress and reactive measures at the same time research in creativity and innovation mainly focuses on profits in economy and other organizational gains. This paper intends to examine work meaningfulness and creative climate, with an employee focus, to achieve proactive work in work-related stress and ill-health. The study is based on interactive research methodology with quantitative elements. A quantitative survey examined whether there was a correlation between the factors. Based on the results of the data a work tool was created, aiming to increase the meaningfulness of work via creative climate and thus affect the working environment in a positive sense. Results from the questionnaires showed significant correlation between work meaningfulness and creative climate, as well as each of the ten dimensions in creative climate, confirming the study's hypotheses. Another significant correlation between work function and work meaningfulness were also found. The conclusion is that the tool to enhance the creative climate of the organization leads to increased work meaningfulness.
