Abstract [en]

The purpose of this qualitative study is to understand how a social worker in the municipality's individual and family care experience and relate to their current work situation. The qauestions that this study aims to answer is how social workers perceive the work situation, and how they reason about the possibilities at influencing the work situation. The theoretical framework is based on Lipsky's theory of street-level bureaucracy and Hirschman's theory of exit, voice and loyalty. The study's empirical data collected from semi-structured interviews with four social workers in the municipality's individual and family care. The analysis of the empirical data showed that social workers perceive that the work situation was manageable, but that there is room for improvements. The interviewees feel that they have opportunities to influence the work situation in certain areas and at certain organizational levels. Social workers also find themselves loyal to the organization to a certain limit. The interviewees claim that they would put themselves in first place of their work situation was considered untenable.
