Abstract [sv]

Denna undersökning som genomförts i en norrlandskommun belyser en grupp av femton kommunanställdas upplevelser av arbetstider vars schemaläggning förläggdes med hjälp av time-caresystemet i jämförelse med en grupp av sjutton kommunanställda som hade fast schema och heroma-önskeschemasystemet. Undersökningen som genomförts med kvantitativ metod syftade till att i ett urval av anställda i en norrlandskommun se upplevelser av arbetstider förlagda med och utan time-care avseende variabilitet (arbetsgivarens schemastyrning) och/eller flexibilitet (individens handlingsfrihet och självständighet).  Trettiotvå respondenter besvarade frågeformulären. Resultatet visade signifikant att respondenterna med time-care upplevde mer överåtagande, mindre möjligheter till förutsägbarhet över en månad, mindre rättvist ledarskap och att arbetet mer påverkar deras fritid än respondenterna som hade fast schema och heroma-önskeschemasystemet. Resultatet visade även att fast/heroma-önskeschemagruppen upplevde mindre överåtaganden, mer kontroll av arbetstakt, samt en högre grad av förutsägbarhet och att de upplevde mer rättvist ledarskap än en normgrupp vilket kan belysa fördelarna med önskeschema.

Abstract [en]

This study carried out in a northern municipality highlights a group of fifteen municipal employees' experiences of working hours whose scheduling was carried out using time-care system in comparison with a group of seventeen municipal employees who had fixed schedule and the heroma-wishful scheduling system. The survey conducted by quantitative method aimed at a sample of employees in a northern municipality see experiences of working placement with and without time care regarding variability (employer's schedule control) and / or flexibility (the individual's freedom and independence). Thirtytwo respondents answered the questionnaires. The results showed significant that respondents with time-care experienced more of overcommitment, less potential for predictability over a month, less fair leadership and to work more affecting their leisure time than respondents with fixed schedule and the heroma-wishful scheduling system. The results also showed that the staff with fixed/heroma-wishful scheduling system experiences less of overcommitments, more in control of the pace of work, and a higher degree of predictability and that they experienced more equitable leadership than a norm group which can highlight the benefits of wishful schedule.
