Health factors role at a staffing company : A qualitative interview study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Människan tillbringar ungefär en tredjedel av dygnet på sin arbetsplats, därför är en god arbetsmiljö av stor vikt. Det finns faktorer i arbetsmiljön som påverkar den enskilda individen i olika utsträckning. Friskfaktorer är en sådan faktor som kan beskrivas med orden hälsa och frisk, som tyder på en frånvaro av sjukdomssymptom, medan hälsofaktorer beskriver de delar av arbetsmiljön som är positiva och hälsofrämjande. Den aktuella studien fokuserar på American Family Association insurance´s (AFA-försäkring) friskfaktorer. Arbetsmiljön i bemanningsbranschen kan i sin tur karaktäriseras som ett triangelledarskap, vilket kännetecknar branschen. Syftet med studien var att undersöka hur ett bemanningsföretag tillämpar AFA-försäkrings friskfaktorer. Metoden utfördes genom en kvalitativ intervjustudie med tolkande utformning. Det intervjuades totalt nio personer i de tre olika yrkeskategorierna, verksamhetschefer, konsultchef och konsulter på fältet. Den insamlade datan analyserades med hjälp av en kvalitativ innehållsanalys och med en deduktiv ansats. Resultatet visade på att virtuellt ledarskap, socialt stöd och möjliga utbildningsinvesteringar var tre av sex friskfaktorer som var påverkbara på bemanningsföretaget. Ledarskapet uppehölls i sin tur genom kommunikationsteknik samt en fysisk träff i veckan. Upplevelsen av ledarskapet var bra trots förutsättningarna, men mer fysisk närvaro och kommunikation önskades. En faktor som påverkade det sociala stödet var konstruktiv feedback. Det erbjöds utbildningsmöjligheter, utnyttjandet av erbjudandet var inte så stort då en tidsbrist rådde. Slutsats, resultatet visade på att bibehålla en kontinuerlig kommunikation försvåras vid ett fysiskt frånvarande ledarskap och en god relation kan därmed vara svår att skapa. Det sociala stödet påverkades genom feedback, vid en minskad feedback reducerades känslan av det sociala stödet. Arbetsplatsen ansåg att investeringar i utbildning är väsentligt för kompetensutvecklingen hos personalen. 

Abstract [en]

People spend about one third of the day at their workplace, therefore are a favourable working environment of great importance. There are factors in the working environment that affect the individual in different extents. Health factors are such a factor and can be described by the words, health and well-being, which indicates an absence of disease symptoms. While health promotion factors describe the parts of the working environment that are positive and health promoting. The current study focuses on American Family Association insurance (AFA-insurance) health factors. The work environment in the staffing company can be characterized as a triangular leadership, which characterizes the industry. The aim of the study was to investigate how a staffing company applies AFA insurance's health factors. Method, the study was performed by a qualitative interview study with a interpretive configuration. Nine people were interviewed in the three different job types, businessmanagers, consultant and consultants in the field. The collected data was then analyzed by using a qualitative content analysis and with a deductive approach. The result showed that the virtual leadership, socialsupport and possible educational investment were three of six health factors which were influential at the company. Leadership was held by communication technology as well as a physical session per week. The experience of the leadership works well given the conditions, but more physical presence and communication were desired. One factor that affected social support was constructive feedback. Education opportunities were offered, the utilization of the offer was poorly due to a shortage of time. Conclusion, the result showed that social support was influenced by feedback, reduced feedback decreased the sense of social support. The workplace considered that investment in education was essential and important for the competence development among the employees. Maintaining continuous communication was complicated when the leadership was physically absent.
