Organisationsidentifikation inom Polismyndigheten : En studie om hur civilanställda och polisutbildade utredare identifierar sig med varandra och organisationen

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Uppsala universitet/Medier och kommunikation

Sammanfattning: Previous research shows that the Swedish Police Authority have had problems with employeeretention and tensions between police and civilian employees. One reported way for organizations to attract new applicants and keep their current ones is to work on their organizational identity. However, there is a gap in research concerning how Swedish police’s civilian and police investigators identify with the organization and how they perceive eachother. Thus, this case study aims to examine how these two kinds of investigators at Polisregion Mitt perceive and construct identities and how they identify with the organization. The study applies a theoretical framework of Social Identity Theory adapted to a constitutive view on communication. It examines how the investigators construct individual, social and organizational identities through language. Also, how the organization affects the constructions and if there are any similarities or differences between the two groups. Data was collected through interviews and analysed with discursive psychology andthematic analysis. The results show that the investigators mostly identify with the organization at some levels, e.g. to their units and lower level management. The investigators do not identify with the organization to a great extent. The cause seems to be deficient communication from highlevel management. Contrary to previous research there seemingly is no tension between the groups. Still all participants construct some problems between the two groups, but they are said to be caused by the organization or management.
