Att knäcka koden - Förhållandet mellan ansträngnings/belöningsobalans, arbetsengagemang och olika belöningsformer på programmerares och systemutvecklares arbetsplats
Sammanfattning: The demand for system developers and programmers is very large in today’s labour market, however the research surrounding their work environment is very limited. System developers and programmers have, in regards to the high demand and limited selection from the workforce, many options to choose from regarding the choice of workplace. This study’s aim is to be a foundation of how an employer of system developers and programmers can be able to both improve work engagement and have their employees stay at the organisation for longer, and also to further expand the research surrounding different forms of employee rewards and their importance for work engagement. Therefore, this study will investigate how strong the relationships are between Effort-Reward Imbalance, work engagement and different kinds of workplace rewards for system developers and programmers on the Swedish labour market. The study investigated the work engagement (using Utrecht Work engagement Scale-9), Effort-Reward Imbalance (ERI quota) and how these relate to four categories of workplace rewards (financial rewards, group activities, feedback and praise and autonomy) with 174 (N=174) system developers and programmers. The results showed the reward category regarding feedback and praise had a significant effect on both ERI and UWES-9. In a comparison between financial and non-financial rewards, the non-financial rewards are of a greater importance regarding work engagement and Effort-Reward Imbalance than the financial ones.
