Abstract [sv]

I detta kvalitativa etnografiska magisterarbete undersöks relationen mellan organisationskultur och hälsofrämjande ledarskap på det kommunalt ägda bostadsbolaget och hyresvärden Mimer. Syftet med denna studie är att utifrån medarbetarnas perspektiv undersöka vilka kopplingar som kan finnas mellan en (stark eller svag) organisationskultur och en hälsofrämjande målbild i organisationen. Studien lyfter även fram hur ledarskapet påverkar och arbetar med organisationskulturen. För detta magisterarbete användes etnografi som forskningsmetod med åtta semi-strukturerade intervjuer som genomfördes under drygt två veckors fältarbete med deltagande observation. Resultatet visar att det finns en gemensam uppfattning om organisationskulturen, där medarbetarna själva besitter Mimers värderingar om delaktighet och gemenskap som tyder på en stark organisationskultur. Dock beskrivs inte alla organisationsmedlemmar ha samma krav eller förutsättningar, vilket kan tolkas ha bildat subkulturer där medarbetarna står sin egen arbetsgrupp närmast, som tyder på en svag organisationskultur. Organisationskulturen kan därmed tolkas som fragmenterad. Ledarskapet visades ha stor påverkan på organisationskulturen och synen på hälsofrämjande arbete, där deras beteende påverkar i vilken grad medarbetarna kan och vill efterleva målen och värderingarna, som i sin tur styr deras lön.

Abstract [en]

This qualitative ethnographic master's thesis examines the relationship between organizational culture and health-promoting leadership at the municipal-owned housing company and landlord Mimer. The aim of this study is thus to empirically explore the employees' perspective, which connections can exist between a (strong or weak) organizational culture and a health-promoting goal in the organization. The study also highlights how the leadership affects and works with the organizational culture. In this master thesis, ethnography was used as a research method, where fieldwork with participant observation and eight semi-structured interviews was conducted. The results show that there is a common understanding of the organizational culture, where the employees themselves possess Mimer's values of participation and community, that indicate a strong organizational culture. However, not all members of the organization are described as having the same requirements or prerequisites, which can be interpreted to have formed subcultures where the employee’s loyalty is primarily directed towards their own workgroup, which indicates a weak organizational culture. The organizational culture can thus be interpreted as fragmented. Leadership was shown to have a major impact on the organizational culture and the view of health-promoting work, where their behavior affects the degree to which employees can and want to comply with the goals and values, which in turn govern their salary.
