Abstract [en]

The work organization variable control and the individual characteristic psychological flexibility are two concepts that affect employees’ well-being at work.This cross-­sectional study examined the extent to which these variables correlated with burnout, mental health and job satisfaction among homecare workers in Sweden (N=68). As hypothesized, results showed that both control and psychological flexibility were associated with burnout and job satisfaction. Findings also showed that psychological flexibility was associated with mental health. Moreover, the results indicated that there is an interaction effect between control and psychological flexibility in relation to these variables. The study implies that employees’ well-being can be improved by means of increased control and psychological flexibility.

Abstract [sv]

Arbetsorganisationsvariabeln kontroll och den individuella faktorn psykologisk flexibilitet är två koncept som påverkar anställdas välmående i arbetet. Denna tvärsnittsstudie undersökte i vilken utsträckning dessa variabler korrelerade med utbrändhet, mental hälsa och arbetstillfredsställelse bland hemtjänstvårdare i Sverige (N=68). I enlighet med uppsatta hypoteser visade resultatet att både kontroll och psykologisk flexibilitet var associerade med utbrändhet och arbetstillfredsställelse samt att psykologisk flexibilitet även var associerat med mental hälsa. Resultaten visade också indikationer på att det finns en interaktionseffekt mellan kontroll och psykologisk flexibilitet för dessa variabler. Studien indikerar att anställdas välmående kan förbättras genom att deras kontroll och psykologiska flexibilitet ökar.
