Abstract [en]

Research shows that an increasing number of people in society is taking sick leave for psychological reasons connected to working life. The focus in this study lies on how the organizational culture influences some of the employees’ health and wellbeing. To find answers to these problems my research questions are how some of the employees experience the prevalent organizational culture and how this perceived culture influences these employees’ health and wellbeing. Four qualitative interviews were conducted in a medium size organization based in Sweden. Focus lied here on perceived norms regarding the organization, social life, work and health. Answers where analysed with the theoretical perspectives of organisational pedagogic, organizational culture, sociocultural theory and psychological contracts. Results show that organizational culture is perceived as mainly consistent for all informants. Findings give that satisfaction is high in many areas regarding health which is consistent with chosen theories and presented research based on their needs being met. The results indicate a smaller difference between managerand floor workers mainly in perceived stress and control and there is also signs of a difference between formal and informal culture regarding which behaviours are perceived as acceptable by the different working groups.
