What’s the meaning? : A qualitative study about how Generation Y experiences meaningful work (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syfte: Syftet med studien är att skapa en ökad förståelse för vad Generation Y i Sverige upplever vara ett meningsfullt arbete. Vårt resultat ämnar till att bli en modell som kan öka förståelsen för hur meningsfullt arbete kan uppnås ur Generation Y:s perspektiv på arbetsplatsen. Metod: En intervjustudie som behandlar generationsforskning ur ett individ- och organisationsperspektiv. Studien har genomförts med en induktiv forskningsansats och en kvalitativ forskningsstrategi. Slutsats: I vår studie framkom det att Generation Y i Sverige till viss del har andra förväntningar på arbetsplatser än utländsk forskning på Generation Y. Vi fann att Generation Y i Sverige upplever meningsfullt arbete genom sammansättningen av arbetet med arbetsmiljö, trygghet, trivsel, ledarskap, lojalitet och motivation. Resultatet av vad Generation Y i Sverige upplever vara ett meningsfullt arbete utmynnade i en modell som visar hur meningsfullt arbete kan främjas av arbetsgivare.
