Hetero, Homo or a bit of both? : A study addressing the paradox that occurs when organizations want to be heterogeneous and homogeneous. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Titel: Hetero, homo eller lite av varje? –En studie som behandlar paradoxen som uppstår när organisationer vill vara både heterogena och homogena.

Författare: Josefine Fält, Joanna Sarvanidis & Gabriella Ståhl

Institution: Linnéuniversitetet, Ekonomihögskolan

Program: Human Resource Management

Kurs: Företagsekonomi III - Organisation, Examensarbete (kandidat)

Handledare: Kjell Arvidsson

Examinator: Mikael Lundgren

Syfte: Med denna uppsats vill vi skapa förståelse för hur organisationer arbetar med mångfald och kulturstyrning för att hantera paradoxen i heterogenitet och homogenitet som uppstår när organisationer strävar efter att vara både innovativa och effektiva. Syftet är även att identifiera konkreta förslag på hur organisationer i praktiken kan arbeta med mångfald och kulturstyrning.

Metod: Vi har valt att göra en kvalitativ flerfallstudie med inslag från både deduktiv ansats och induktiv ansats.

Slutsats: I vår slutsats kom vi fram till att organisationer arbetar med mångfald och kulturstyrning på olika sätt. Vi presenterar förslag på hur organisationer skulle kunna arbeta på liknande sätt för att uppnå både innovation och effektivitet.

Nyckelord: Heterogenitet, homogenitet, mångfaldsarbete, kulturstyrning, innovation och effektivitet.

Title: Hetero, Homo or a bit of both? –A study addressing the paradox that occurs when organizations want to be heterogeneous and homogeneous.

Authors: Josefine Fält, Joanna Sarvanidis & Gabriella Ståhl

Program: Human Resource Management

Course: Business Administration III - Organization (bachelor thesis)

Supervisor: Kjell Arvidsson

Examiner: Mikael Lundgren

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to understand how organizations works with diversity and culture management in a way that handles the paradox between heterogeneity and homogeneity, in their search for innovation and efficiency. We also want to identify suggestions for how organizations can work with diversity and culture management.

Methodology: We have made a qualitative multiple case study with elements from both the deductive approach and inductive approach.

Conclusions: We have come to the conclusion that organizations work with diversity management and culture management in different ways. We present suggestions on how organizations could work in a similar way to achieve both innovation and efficiency.

Key words: Heterogeneity, Homogeneity, Diversity management, Culture management, innovation and efficiency.
