Abstract [en]

Loyalty is a well-considered and well-researched subject in today's society. Today, the term is described as complex and there is no socially accepted definition. In organizations, loyalty is considered to be an important factor for the economic outcome, therefore it was considered relevant and interesting to study loyalty in Swedish organizations, and more specifically in the Swedish audit industry.

The study is based on a number of previous theories that introduce loyalty to the organization and loyalty to ones own professional growth. Thus, in the patriarchal and hierarchical audit industry, sex and position have been investigated as influencing factors for the loyalty types presented. With two factors of influence, the connection was investigated with a quantitative method in the form of surveys.

The investigation showed that, despite the structure of the industry, it is the individual's characteristics that affect loyalty in organizational contexts. Sex and position were thus shown to have no significance for loyalty.

Abstract [sv]

Lojalitet är ett välomtalat och välutforskat ämne i dagens samhälle. Idag beskrivs begreppet som komplext och det saknas en samhällsaccepterad definition. I organisationer anses lojalitet vara en viktig faktor för det ekonomiska resultatet, varför det ansågs relevant och intressant att studera lojalitet i svenska organisationer, och mer specifikt i den svenska revisionsbranschen.

Studien baseras på ett flertal tidigare teorier som introducerar en lojalitet till organisationen och en lojalitet till den egna professionella tillväxten. I den patriarkala och hierarkiska revisionsbranschen har därmed kön och position undersökts som påverkansfaktorer till de presenterade lojalitetstyperna. Med två påverkansfaktorer undersöktes sambandet med en kvantitativ metod i form av enkäter.

Undersökningen visade att oaktat branschens struktur är det individens egenskaper som påverkar lojaliteten i organisatoriska sammanhang. Kön och position visades således inte ha någon betydelse för lojaliteten.
