Occupational self-efficacy and Work engagement (English)
Abstract [en]

Work engagement has a number of positive effects that benefit companies, and it may therefore be interesting to investigate what precedes work engagement. The purpose of the study was to investigate the relationship between occupational self-efficacy and occupational work engagement. In order for the study to provide a picture of all of Sweden, a number of counties were selected around the country. Randomized managers from each county were asked to forward an e-mail with an information letter and a survey to the employment officers over which he or she was manager. When the employment officers (N = 163) had responded the surveys, a multiple regression analysis was made. The result showed that the relation between occupational self-efficacy and work engagement was close to moderate. In conclusion, there was a discussion about how employers can increase their employees' occupational self-efficacy. Practical guidelines on how to achieve this was also presented along with other previous research.

Abstract [sv]

Arbetsengagemang har en mängd positiva effekter som gynnar företag, och det kan därför vara intressant att undersöka vad som föregår arbetsengagemang. Syftet med studien var att undersöka sambandet mellan yrkesinriktad self-efficacy och arbetsengagemang. För att studien skulle ge en bild av hela Sverige valdes ett antal län runt om i landet ut. Slumpmässigt utvalda chefer från varje län ombads vidarebeforda ett mail med ett informationsbrev och en enkät till arbetsförmedlarna som denne var chef över. När arbetsförmedlarna (N = 163) svarat på enkäterna gjordes en multipel regressionsanalys. Resultatet visade att det fanns ett knappt måttligt samband mellan yrkesinriktad self-efficacy och arbetsengagemang. Avslutningsvis förs en diskussion om hur arbetsgivare kan höja sina medarbetares yrkesinriktade self-efficacy. Praktiska riktlinjer på hur detta kan uppnås presenterades även, tillsammans med tidigare forskning.
