Personal Policy - A Creative Process! (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syfte:

Syftet med detta arbete är att undersöka vilken påverkansfaktor

personalpolicy och personalhandböcker har i ett medelstort företag i Sverige. Det är

även av intresse att se hur dessa dokument är utformade och hur de implementeras i

verksamheten.

Metod:

Forskningsansatsen är en kvalitativ metodtriangulering. En fallstudie med

semistrukturerade intervjuer samt en dokumentstudie av policydokument och

personalhandböcker från organisationen i fråga. Ett abduktivt synsätt har tillämpas

i och med att vi har dragit slutsatser från vårt resultat för att applicera på koncernen,

men även utgått från teori ur litteraturen för att kunna tillämpa dessa på

studieobjektet. Ett hermeneutiskt perspektiv har tillämpats under den genomförda

dokumentanalysen, för att se materialet både i delar och som en helhet.

Empiri:

Datainsamlingen har genomförts med hjälp av fem intervjuer där

respondenterna representerade fem separata verksamheter inom koncernen.

Respondenterna har olika roller inom organisationen men samtliga innehar en

ledarposition med ett personalansvar.

Slutsats:

Enbart ett välarbetat dokument bidrar inte med effektivitet utan faktorer

som ledarskap och organisationskultur behöver även ingå i ekvationen för att

policyn ska bidra med värde till organisationen.

Abstract [en]

Purpose:

The purpose of this study is to explore the impact of the documents on

personnel policy and personnel manuals in a medium-sized company in Sweden. It

is also of interest to see how these documents are designed and how they are

implemented in the organization.

Method:

The research approach is a qualitative method triangulation. A case study

with semistructured interviews and a text study of policy documents and personnel

manuals from the organization in question. An abductive approach has been applied

as we have drawn conclusions from our results to apply to the group, but also based

on literature theory in order to apply these to the study object. A hermeneutic

perspective has been applied during the completed text analysis, to see the material

both in parts and as a whole.

Empirics:

The data collection was carried out by means of five interviews, in which

respondents represented five separate operations within the concern. Respondents

have different roles within the organization, and all of them have a personnel

responsibility.

Conclusion:

Only a well-worked document does not contribute to efficiency.

Factors such as leadership and organizational culture also need to be included in the

equation for the policy to contribute value to the organization.
