Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats ämnar att undersöka sambandet mellan arbetstillfredsställelse och arbetsflexibilitet samt hur arbetstillfredsställelsen skiljer sig mellan könen när de har barn under 18 år i Sverige. Genom att använda ett befintligt dataset, insamlat av International Social Survey Programme (ISSP), har vi kunnat utföra multipel regressionsanalyser. Vi har med hjälp av tidigare forskning samt teorier kring krav- och kontroll, rollteori och dubbelarbete format fyra hypoteser för att möjliggöra analysering av resultatet. Resultaten visade på att det inte finns ett samband mellan arbetstillfredsställelse och kön kontrollerat för andra variabler, dock finns ett negativt samband mellan kön och arbetstillfredsställelse, utan kontrollvariabler. Resultatet visade även på att det finns ett positivt samband mellan arbetstillfredsställelse och arbetsflexibilitet. Sambandet pekar således mot att högre arbetsflexibilitet samvarierar med högre arbetstillfredsställelse. Vidare rapporterade kvinnor med barn under 7 år lägre arbetstillfredsställelse jämfört med män. Medan män med barn mellan 7 och 17 år rapporterade lägre arbetstillfredsställelse än kvinnor när antalet barn ökar.  

Abstract [en]

This bachelor's thesis aims to examine the relationship between job satisfaction and work flexibility, in addition to how job satisfaction differs between the genders when they have children under the age of 18 in Sweden. By utilizing an existing dataset, collected by the International Social Survey Programme (ISSP), we conducted multiple regression analyses. Drawing on prior research and theories regarding demand and control, roles, and the double burden, we formulated four hypotheses. Furthermore, we analyzed our results using the theoretical framework to gain an understanding of their implications. The results implicate no significant correlation between job satisfaction and gender, when controlled for other variables. However, a negative correlation was found between gender and job satisfaction, without control variables. A positive correlation was also found between job satisfaction and work flexibility. Therefore, the evidence suggests that higher levels of work flexibility co-varies with increased job satisfaction. Furthermore, women with children under the age of 7 reported lower job satisfaction compared to men. In contrast, men with children between ages 7 and 17 reported lower job satisfaction than women as the number of children increased.
