Abstract [sv]

Stora delar av dagens arbetsliv utgörs av flexibla arbeten, särskilt inom tjänstemannasektorn,

vilket innebär att medarbetaren själv styr, kontrollerar och ansvarar för sitt arbete vad gäller när,

var och hur arbetet ska utföras. Utifrån detta syftar vår uppsats till att studera hur medarbetare

inom HR-branschen upplever villkoren i dagens gränslösa arbetsliv och hur medarbetarna

hanterar dessa villkor i sitt dagliga arbete. Med en fenomenografisk utgångspunkt fokuseras

undersökningen till individers uppfattning och vi har ett förståelseinriktat angreppssätt i studien.

Vidare är studien kvalitativ och empirin hämtas från kvalitativa intervjuer med åtta medarbetare

inom HR-branschen. Resultatet visar att det nya arbetslivet ställer krav på medarbetarna att

själva organisera arbetet, identifiera sina arbetsuppgifter samt initiera samarbeten med såväl

kunder som kollegor för att utföra arbetet. Medarbetaren förväntas även vara flexibel och kunna

arbeta mer efter företagets behov såväl som ständigt utvecklas och anpassa sig till förändringar

av arbetssätt. Detta samtidigt som medarbetaren ska vara socialt och emotionellt kompetent för

att hantera kollegor och kunder samt vara personligt engagerad i sitt arbete.

Abstract [en]

Large parts of today's working life consists of flexible working, especially within the civil

service, which means that the employee him-/herself regulates, controls and has the

responsibility for their work in terms of when, where and how work gets done. Based on this, our

thesis is aimed at studying how the employees in the HR industry experience working in today's

boundary-less working life and how employees handle these conditions in their daily work. With

a phenomenographical base the study focuses on individuals' perception and thereby we take a

learning-oriented approach in the study. Furthermore the study is qualitative and the empirical

data are gathered from interviews with eight employees in the HR industry. The result shows that

the new working life requires employees to organize the work, identify their tasks and initiate

partnerships with both customers and colleagues to be able to execute the work tasks. Employees

are also expected to be flexible and able to work according to the needs of the company, as well

as constantly develop and adapt to changes in working methods. This while the employee also is

required to be socially and emotionally competent in order to manage colleagues and customers.

Furthermore the employee is expected to be personally involved in their work.
