”Får jag vara med” is a candidate essay specializing in sociology authored by Mohamed Korchane. We live in a time where staffing agencies are taking more and more room in the labor market, and it has come to affect employees employed by these agencies. Every organizational has an organizational culture in one way or another. The agency employees are often temporarily employed and this makes the organizational culture subtle and unclear for them compared to the ones who are employed by the company, the culture is clear. Therefore, this study aims to enlighten and increase the understanding of how various consultants can experience the organizational culture and whether they feel included in the customer company or not. The study is built on a qualitative method and is based on six semi-structured interviews with consultants from the same staffing agency. The study’s analytical framework is based on Schein and Hofstede’s theories of organizational culture.
The results show that the consultant’s experience of the organizational culture can be complex, in some ways it is perceived relevant and in others poor and a contributing factor to insecurity within their employment. Distinguishing is that the organizational culture fills a valuable feature whenthe good norms and values are often seen as exclusive from the public. Whether the individual can identify himself with the prevailing organizational culture shows features of both compliance and resistance. The experiences that has been identified indicates the individual can identify with some of them. However, with others it indicates the lack of identification and disadvantage when they are hired through staffing agencies and not directly by the company.
