Kartläggning av förändringar i anställningsstruktur inom offentliga och privata organisationer (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

 The structure of employment is important for companies to keep

their policies. This structure changes continuously due to new

technologies. At the beginning of the 90 ’s, for example, the number

of highly educated workers increased at the expense of workers

with little education. But later studies have shown that this trend

has received competition from two other trends, one is a polarized

structure, i.e., more workers with little or high education at the

expense of workers with medium education, who mostly do administration.

The other trend, which only has been observed among

academic workers, is the opposite: more workers with medium

education at the expense of high and low education. The problem

with the last trend is that companies will grow in an inefficient way:

More resources will go to the administration department and leaving

less money for the Core department, which generates growth

in the organization. Here we show which industries in the Swedish

economy that are at risk of this inefficient growth. Results make it

clear that this problem not only exists in the academic world but

in every state-owned organization. In the state-owned category, we

find medical care that is criticized for its high administration costs.

Our findings show that medical care is one of the more efficient

state-owned industries, with respect to the proportion of administration.

Overall, our results demonstrate that it is not always

positive to grow large as an state-owned organisation. These results

suggest that state-owned organisations should avoid merging to

maintain their efficiency.
