Control with temporary staff : A qualitative case study that examines the in-/exclusion of the temporary staff in different control methods as well as its effect on goal congruent behavior. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Användningen av inhyrd personal har ökat till följd av ett ökat krav på flexibilitet och ingår numera allt oftare i personalstyrkan. Däremot inkluderas sällan den inhyrda personalen i den styrning som utformats för den ordinarie personalen. Styrning används för att påverka personalens beteenden så att de blir målkongruenta. Därför är det intressant att undersöka om inhyrd personal saknar ett målkongruent beteende och således har en negativ inverkan på företagets målkongruens.

Syfte: Studiens syfte är att undersöka om och varför beteenden överlag skiljer sig åt mellan inhyrd och ordinarie personal hos ett valt företag. Forskningen skapar en djupare förståelse för hur inkludering/exkludering i olika styrmekanismer kan påverka de inhyrdas bidrag till målkongruens.

Metod: Studien tillämpar en kvalitativ forskningsstrategi med en induktiv ansats. Den forskningsdesign som tillämpats är en enfallsstudie. Empirin till studien har samlats in genom kvalitativa intervjuer med både inhyrd och ordinarie personal samt deras närmsta chef. Materialet har sedan analyserats och tolkats för att besvara forskningsfrågorna.

Slutsats: Studien fann att de inhyrda medarbetarna har ett mindre målkongruent beteende än de ordinarie. Skillnaden beror framförallt på de inhyrdas exkludering från företagets formella styrmetoder. Att de inhyrda för det mesta inkluderas i de informella styrmetoderna förklarar varför de inhyrda till viss del ändå uppvisar ett målkongruent beteende. 

Abstract [en]

Background: The use of temporary staff has increased as a result of an increased demand for flexibility and is now increasingly included in the personnel force. Despite that, the temporary staff are rarely included in the control designed for the ordinary staff. Control is used to influence staff behavior so that they become goal-congruent. Therefore, it is interesting to investigate if the temporary staff lack a goal congruent behavior and thus have a negative impact on the company's goal congruence.

Purpose: The purpose of the study is to investigate whether and why behaviors differ between temporary and ordinary staff, at a chosen company. The research creates a deeper understanding about how the inclusion/ exclusion in different control mechanisms influence the temporary staff to contribute to the target congruence

Method: The study applies a qualitative research strategy with an inductive approach. The research design that has been applied is a case study at a chosen company. The empirical study has been collected through qualitative interviews with both temporary and ordinary staff and their closest manager. The material has then been analyzed and interpreted to answer the research questions.

Conclusion: The study found that the temporary staff have a less goal-congruent behavior than the ordinary staff. The difference is mainly due to the temporary’s exclusion from the company's formal control methods. For the most part, the temporary staff is included in informal control methods, which explains why the they to some extent still have a goal-congruent behavior.
