    Anställningsotrygghet – en oro för att mot sin vilja förlora jobbet – är något som de flesta anställda idag upplever under sina yrkesliv. Den beteendevetenskapliga forskningen inom detta område har skjutit fart sedan millennieskiftet, vilket motiverar behovet av en uppdaterad litteraturöversikt. Översikten omfattar prediktorer och konsekvenser av anställningsotrygghet samt vilka faktorer som har identifierats som viktiga när det gäller att mildra anställningsotrygghetens konsekvenser.

    Enkätmetodik ger såväl teoretisk som praktisk kunskap om enkätundersökningar från att identifiera ett problem och formulera lämpliga frågor, till att analysera och tolka resultatet. Boken har ett evidensbaserat perspektiv där läsaren får lära sig olika verktyg som bidrar till undersökningens tillförlitlighet.

    Fokus ligger på metodiken, som förklaras och sätts in i sitt sammanhang med hjälp av många exempel, faktarutor och tydliga beskrivningar. Läsaren får således god förståelse för centrala områden såsom mätteori, reliabilitet, validitet och faktoranalys.

    Problem: Leader communication is known to influence a number of employee behaviors. When it comes to the relationship between leader communication and safety, the evidence is more scarce and ambiguous. The aim of the present study is to investigate whether and in what way leader communication relates to safety outcomes. The study examines two leader communication approaches: leader safety priority communication and feedback to subordinates. These approaches were assumed to affect safety outcomes via different employee behaviors. Method: Questionnaire data, collected from 221 employees at two hospital wards, were analyzed using structural equation modeling. Results: The two examined communication approaches were both positively related to safety outcomes, although leader safety priority communication was mediated by employee compliance and feedback communication by organizational citizenship behaviors. Conclusion: The findings suggest that leader communication plays a vital role in improving organizational and patient safety and that different communication approaches seem to positively affect different but equally essential employee safety behaviors. Practical applications: The results highlights the necessity for leaders to engage in one-way communication of safety values as well as in more relational feedback communication with their subordinates in order to enhance patient safety.

    In many of today's organizations, there is a growing concern regarding workplace safety. As a result of this, there is an increase in organizational activities aimed at enhancing the employees’ safety awareness’ and eliminating organizational factors that may lead to the employees being exposed to risks.Communication is considered a vital aspect of the functioning and success of an organization, and is potentially relevant even in a workplace safety context. However, there are gaps in research regarding the ways in which a leader’s communication with his or her subordinates could affect safety at the workplace. The question in the present study is how and in what way a leader’s communication with his or her subordinates (e.g. in the form of feedback, communication of safety values, and openness in dialogues) relate to safety issues such as perceived safety and safety behaviors. Questionnaire data was collected from a ward belonging to an emergency hospital operating in a rural area in Sweden. The data will be analyzed using structural equation modeling. The results will be described and discussed in terms of theoretical implications relating to the linkage between a leader’s communication with his or her subordinates and safety, as well as in terms of practical implications for policy-makers and managers. The paper highlights the importance of taking leadership communication into account in the pursuit of increasing workplace safety.

    Bonus systems are a common means in trying to motivate employees to perform well. However, there is still disagreement regarding the effects of bonus systems. Some theories even suggest that such systems could cause an increase in risk-behavior. This makes further research regarding bonus systems warranted, especially when applied in high-risk organizations. This study aims to explore potential effects on safety-related behavior associated with bonus systems currently used at Swedish nuclear power plants. Fifteen semi-structured interviews with employees were performed based on an eclectically composed framework from motivational and organizational theories. Results do not indicate any negative effects on safety-related behaviors, but rather that safety behaviors may be promoted insofar as bonus rewards are linked to performance goals concerning safety. Differences in bonus system design appeared to affect behavioral outcomes. The comparative and qualitative approach of this study contributes valuable information by highlighting the types of factors that may serve to stimulate greater incentive for employees to engage in safe behavior.

    The present study investigates the relationship between felt jobinsecurity and union membership accounting for potential differencesbetween temporary and permanent workers. Consistentwith the idea that felt job insecurity leads workers to seek socialprotection from the unions, and with earlier studies, we hypothesizea positive relationship between felt job insecurity and unionmembership (Hypothesis 1). Furthermore, we argue that thisrelationship may be stronger among temporary compared withpermanent workers (Hypothesis 2): insecure temporary workersare in a situation of 'double vulnerability', hence they have strongmotives for unionization. Hypotheses are tested in a cross--sectional sample of 560 Flemish (Dutch-speaking part ofBelgium) workers. Our results were as follows: the relationshipbetween felt job insecurity and union membership was not significant.The interaction term between contract type and felt jobinsecurity was significantly related to union membership: the relationship between felt job insecurity and union membership waspositive among temporary workers, but not among permanentworkers. This pattern of results may inspire unions to target futurerecruitment strategies on temporary workers. A route for futureresearch could be to test our hypotheses also longitudinally.
