Behind Socioemotional wealth : What affects family firms in recruitment decision (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund:

Familjeföretag är en av de mest förekommande företagsformen i världen och är ett mycket populärt forskningsområde. Familjeföretags beteende skiljer sig från dess konkurrenter då de utöver finansiella mål även försöker uppfylla icke-finansiella mål. Detta fenomen har kommit att förklarats utifrån teorin om Socioemotional wealth, SEW. SEW syftar till att fånga de affektiva värden som ägarfamiljen i ett familjeföretag agerar utifrån. Ett av SEWs underliggande antagande är att ägarfamiljen vill behålla företaget inom familjen och kunna erbjuda familjemedlemmar arbete i företaget.

Syfte:

Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur och vilka socioemotionella faktorer som reflekteras i familjeföretags beslut i rekryteringen till dess top management team

Metod:

Familjeföretagens socioemotionella värden mäts med FIBER-skalan. För att samla in information användes en enkätundersökning. Enkäten skickades till mindre privatägda företag i Sverige. 157 svar mottogs och utifrån dessa genomfördes studiens empiriska analys.

Resultat/Slutsats

Studiens resultat indikerar på att familjemedlemmars association med företaget samt beslutsfattande under påverkan av känslor är de två faktorer som främst påverkar andelen familjemedlemmar i familjeföretags top management team. Resultatet indikerar att FIBER-skalan inte är det mest optimala verktyget för att mäta SEW. Studien erbjuder framtida forskare PARCD vilket är ettt mer precist mått för att mäta SEW i mindre privatägda företag i en svensk kontext. 

Abstract [en]

Background:

Family owned businesses is the most common business form in the world and family firms as a field of research have become increasingly popular. These companies behave differently to non-family companies whereas their competition have their eyes on the bottom line family firms tends to pursue non-financial goals. This phenomena have lately been explain with socioemotional wealth, SEW. One of SEW’s underlying assumption is for the family to keep control over the firm and be able to offer family members an opportunity to work for the firm.

Purpose:

The purpose of this study is to examine how and what socioemotional factors are reflected in family owned-businesses recruitment to their top management teams.

Method:

The family owned-businesses socioemotional wealth were measured by the FIBER-scale. To gather information a survey study was made which were sent to smaller privately owned companies in Sweden. 157 complete answers were received on which the empirical analysis was conducted.

Results/Conclusion:

The study’s result indicates that association of family members and the firm together with decision making affected by emotions are the two main factors that affect the proportion of family members in the TMT. Furthermore, results show that the FIBER-scale might not be the optimal way of measuring SEW. This study therefore provide future researchers with an adjusted measurement called PARCD which gives its user a more accurate tool to measure SEW in smaller privately owned family firms in a Swedish context.
