Abstract [sv]

Arbetsmotivation kan beskrivas som ett övergripande samlingsnamn för de faktorer som framkallar, formar och driver en människa mot olika mål i arbetet. Det finns fördelar med en hög arbetsmotivation och en eventuell relation till produktivitet har ofta legat i fokus. Detta har gjorts för att gynna företag och deras tillväxt. Tidigare forskning visar dock inte enbart på detta utan också på att en hög arbetsmotivation kan ge positiva effekter hos medarbetaren, bland annat en förbättrad hälsa samt minskad upplevelse av stress. Syftet med detta examensarbete är att undersöka gruppträningsinstruktörers uppfattning av arbetsmotivation. Fokus har legat på de faktorer som påverkar medarbetarens arbetsmotivation samt arbetsmotivationens relation till stress. Information samlades in genom semistrukturerade intervjuer med anställda gruppträningsinstruktörer. Data samanställdes och analyserades med tematisk analys. Resultatet visar att faktorer som feedback, relationer på arbetsplatsen, arbetets meningsfullhet samt kompetens och intresse bidrog till ökad arbetsmotivation. Utöver detta visar resultatet på att en hög arbetsmotivation upplevs som ett visst skydd mot arbetsrelaterad stress. Dock framkom det även att ytterligare faktorer var nödvändiga för att uppnå lägsta möjliga nivå av stress. 

Abstract [en]

Work motivation can be described as a collective name for the factors that develop, molds and drive man against various goals at the workplace. There are advantages with a high work motivation but the focus has previously often been on an eventual increase in productivity. This has been done with the aim to promote companies and their growth. However, this is not the only result in previous research and positive effects of work motivation on the employees themselves have been reported, for example, improved health and a decrease in perceived stress. The purpose of this study is to explore group fitness instructors views on work motivation. The focus have been directed to the factors that affect employees work motivation and the relation of work motivation to stress. Information was collected in semi-structured interviews with employed group fitness instructors. The data was compiled and then analyzed with thematic analysis. The result shows that factors as feedback, relations in the workplace, job satisfaction, expertise and interest contributed to increased work motivation. In addition to this the results show that high work motivation is perceived to give some protection against work-related stress. However, it was shown that additional factors were needed to achieve lowest possible level of stress.
