Abstract [en]

Previous research about work environment aspects of the Church of Sweden is limited and has either focused on structural problems or leadership. This study is an explorative study and focused on the psychosocial work environment factors (factors which are related to the interplay of physical, mental, organizational and social conditions in the work) in the Church of Sweden and set out from a top-down perspective.

Data include documents and interviews and were analyzed and categorized in order to find pattern of relevance for the psychosocial work environment in the organization.

The result shows four themes: unclear organization structure, an idea of being different, stressful work conditions and a destructive communication style. The result emphasized that the psychosocial work environment within the Church is complex with deep conflicts, often not dealt with.
