Motivation och arbetstillfredsställelse hos personal på vård- och omsorgsboende : En kvantitativ studie inom äldreomsorgen (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Currently, eldercare has trouble with recruiting employees, which results in an increase in staff turnover. High turnover affects the quality of care and reduces motivation and job satisfaction. Raising motivation and job satisfaction would improve the well-being of both the staff and the elderly. The aim of this study was to examine hygiene factors and motivation factors according to Herzberg’s twofactor theory of care-home staff. This was examined according to which factors motivates staff to stay at their workplace. Data was gathered using a questionnaire, designed with the help of Herzberg’s 14 factors. The participants for the study were chosen because of availability to the study in terms of time and geographical proximity. 43 respondents participated in the study. The data of the study was analyzed through descriptive statistics and inferential statistics. Results showed that the most positive estimated hygiene factors were interpersonal relations (40%) and job security (37%). The most positive estimated motivation factors were responsibility (44%) and recognition (37%). The factors that the respondent thought motivated them to stay at their workplace were work itself (56%) and job security (49%). We did not find a significance of the inferential statistics, but we found a significance correlation between the estimated hygiene and motivation factors (r = .73, P <. 001). In conclusion, both hygiene factors and motivation factors were equally as important to staff’s motivation to stay at their workplace. The study enlightens the importance of understanding what creates job satisfaction of care home staff to decrease turnover among staff and increase the well-being and the quality of care for the elderly.
