Profession on the move : A study of the changed mission of the personnel function within Landstinget i Uppsala län (Uppsala County Council) (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den svenska hälso- och sjukvården har förändrats i takt med att välfärdssamhället har byggts ut sedan andra världskriget. Trender och modeller har påverkat styrning och organisering vilket har fått konsekvenser för arbetets utformning för dem som är verksamma inom området. Denna studie har, med hälso- och sjukvårdens förändring som bakgrund, undersökt hur personalfunktionens uppdrag förändrats i organisationen Landstinget i Uppsala län under drygt trettio år. Metoden har varit empirisk studie i form av intervjuer av individer som varit verksamma inom personalfunktionen i organisationen under en lång tid. Studien har lett fram till följande slutsatser:

Personalfunktionen inom Landstinget i Uppsala län har under drygt trettio år gått från att vara administrativ till att vara en typ av expertfunktion. Expertrollen rymmer dels det strategiska uppdraget i organisationen, dels det konsultativa stödet till verksamheten genom dess chefer. I viss mån har det fört personalfunktionen från det operativa perspektivet till det strategiska. Denna utveckling har varit positiv för personalfunktionen i det att den har bidragit till en tydligare definition av professionen.

Abstract [en]

Since the Second World War the Swedish healthcare has changed considerably, along with the development of the welfare state. Different trends and models have influenced the way the healthcare system has been managed and organized. This has naturally had consequences for those working in the health sector. The objective of this study is, in the light of these changes, to investigate how the mission of the personnel function has changed within the organization Landstinget i Uppsala län (Uppsala County Council) during the past thirty years. The method is an empirical study based on interviews with individuals whom have been part of the personnel function in the County Council for a long time. These are the main conclusions of the study:

The personnel function has developed from an administrative to an expert function. The expert function includes two roles, as carrying the strategic mission, and as consultative support through managers in the organization. This has to some extent brought the personnel function from an operative perspective to a strategic one. This has been a positive development for the personnel function, as it has contributed to a more distinct definition of their profession.
