The work with social sustainability within the industry – difficulties and possibilities from a health and gender perspective (English)
Abstract [sv]

Introduktion: De globala målen har tre dimensioner där social hållbarhet är en dimension som innebär att skapa ett jämställt, jämlikt och inkluderande samhälle. Ett av de globala målen är att minska ojämlikheterna där ett delmål är att främja social inkludering. Traditionella maskulina normer och strukturer utmanar arbetet med en god och jämlik hälsa samtidigt som den traditionellt maskulina normen kan bidra till utsatthet och ohälsa hos män. Syfte: Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur hälso- och genusfrågor inkluderas i arbetet med social hållbarhet hos organisationer som arbetar med industrin. Metod: Studien genomfördes som en kvalitativ studie med semistrukturerade fysiska eller digitala intervjuer. Det transkriberade materialet gav underlag till en innehållsanalys där kategorier skapades utifrån manifest och latent innehåll i de meningsenheter som hade bäring på studiens syfte. Resultat: Resultaten visar på svårigheter vid arbete med social hållbarhet då industriella organisationer ofta prioriterar kortsiktig lönsamhet och produktivitet före hälsa. Det kan dock finnas samhällsvinster om fler organisationer arbetar utifrån social hållbarhet - bättre arbetsmiljö, högre innovationsgrad och bättre hälsa. Slutsats: Social hållbarhet skapar bättre förutsättningar för bättre hälsa, men social hållbarhet är inte prioriterat lika ofta inom industrin som kortsiktig lönsamhet. Därav skulle industriföretag behöva fler incitament och strategier om hur social hållbarhet skapar värde för företaget och en bättre hälsa både för kvinnor och män.

Abstract [en]

Introduction: The sustainable development goals have three dimensions where social sustainability is one dimension that means creating an equal and inclusive society. One of the sustainable development goals is to reduce inequalities, where an objective is to promote social inclusion. Traditional masculine norms and structures challenge the work of good and equal health, while the traditionally masculine norm could contribute to vulnerability and illness in men. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate how health and gender issues are included in the work with social sustainability in organizations working with industry. Method: The study was conducted as a qualitative study with semi-structured physical or digital interviews. The transcribed material provided a basis for a content analysis where themes were created based on manifestos and latent content in sentence-units was identified as having connections on the purpose of the study. Results: The results show difficulties when working with social sustainability as industrial organizations often prioritize short-term profitability and productivity over health. However, there are societal benefits if there were more organizations working on the basis of social sustainability - better work environment, higher degree of innovation and better health. Conclusion: Social sustainability creates better conditions for better health, but social sustainability is not prioritized as often in industry as short-term profitability. Therefore, industrial companies would need more incentives and strategies on how social sustainability creates value for the company and better health for both women and men.
