IDENTIFICATION WITHIN THE NURSE PROFESSION : Co-workership in professional organizations (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Människor tenderar att identifiera sig själva med olika sociala grupper, exempelvis utifrån professions- eller organisationstillhörighet. Individer inom samma sociala grupp formar ofta liknande normer och värderingar, vilket skapar en känsla av tillhörighet. I en professionell organisation tenderar medarbetare tillhörande en profession att identifiera sig med sin profession snarare än sin organisation, vilket i sin tur påverkar relationen mellan individ och organisation. Under de senaste åren har begreppet medarbetarskap blivit alltmer populärt på den svenska arbetsmarknaden. Begreppet innefattar hur medarbetare hanterar relationen till sin arbetsgivare och till det egna arbetet. Beroende på i vilken utsträckning medarbetarna identifierar sig med sin profession och sin organisation kan dessa relationer påverkas.

Syfte: Syftet med denna studie är att beskriva hur professionernas identifikation påverkar medarbetarskap i professionella organisationer.

Metod: Då syftet med studien är att ge en ingående beskrivning av valt problemområde baseras studien på en kvalitativ metod. För att kunna beskriva hur professioners identifikation påverkar medarbetarskap i professionella organisationer har två fallstudier genomförts, båda på professionella organisationer med verksamheter inom hälso- och sjukvård. Studien är baserad på kvalitativa intervjuer med respondenter tillhörande en profession.

Resultat och slutsats: Studien visar att individer i en professionell organisation tillhörande en profession tenderar att identifiera sig med sin profession snarare än sin organisation. Då medarbetarskap bygger på relationen till både arbetsgivare och det egna arbetet påverkas det av professioners identifikation. Det har i föreliggande studie dessutom framkommit att förtroende sker i större utsträckning inom den egna professionen, även gemenskap och samarbete har visat sig ske i första hand inom professionens gränser. Studien har även visat att professioner upplever ett starkare engagemang för det egna arbetet än för organisationen, de tenderar dessutom att ta mer ansvar för det egna arbetet än för organisationen som helhet.

Abstract [en]

Background: People tend to identify themselves with different social groups based on, for instance, professional or organizational affiliation. Individuals who identify themselves with the same social group often create similar norms and values, which create a sense of belonging. In a professional organization professional co-workers tend to identify themselves with their profession rather than their organization, which in turn affects the relationship between the individual and the organization. In recent years the concept of co-workership has become increasingly popular in the Swedish labor market. The concept of co-workership includes how employees handle the relationship with their employer and to their own work. Depending on the extent to which employees identify themselves with their profession and their organization these relationships are affected.

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to describe how professional identification influences the co-workership in professional organizations.

Method: To give a descriptive picture of the chosen area the study is based on a qualitative approach. In order to describe how professional identification influences the co-workership in professional organizations two case studies has been conducted, both organizations are to be found in the health care field. The study is based on qualitative interviews with respondents belonging to a chosen profession.

Results and conclusion: The present study has revealed that professional co-workers in a professional organization tend to identify themselves with their profession rather than their organization. Since co-workership is based on relationships both with employers and to the co-workers own work the professional identification therefor has an influence on the co-workership. The present study further revealed that trust occurs more widely within the own profession. It has also been found that fellowship and collaboration primarily occurs within the own profession. The study has shown that professionals tend to experience a stronger commitment to their work than to their organization, they also tend to take more responsibility for their own work than for the whole organization.
