Detta är en Magister-uppsats från Göteborgs universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

Sammanfattning: The purpose of this research is to look into the impact of European legislation on the prevention of psychosocial risks for workers in small start-up enterprises in Greece. The study's goal is to determine whether the adoption of European legislation has resulted in changes in job demands and human resources. The study investigates the obstacles and potential of applying legislation to smaller businesses by focusing on a small start-up company. The study especially studies employees' impressions of the application of European legislation in a Greek start-up company, as well as the effects of the legislation on job needs and employee well-being. The study draws on a sample of seven people from diverse departments and hierarchical positions within the business. Several conclusions are drawn through theme analysis and connecting the findings with the Job Demands-Resources (JD R) model. According to the findings, the adoption of European legislation has a minor but favorable impact on the work environment in small start-up businesses, encouraging a positive and supportive work environment defined by open communication and mutual support, while the favorable working atmosphere in their workplaces was additionally impacted by various factors, including the company's culture and the disposition of the employer. Contextual factors influence the success of European legislation, underscoring the necessity for ongoing support and specific approaches in small start-up firms. The findings help to understand the impact of European legislation on worker well-being and offer practical implications for companies and governments looking to enhance working conditions and promote employee wellbeing. Further research on the interaction between legislative measures, organizational characteristics, and individual well-being in the field of occupational health and well being is recommended.
