Abstract
The purpose of this study was to compare what trainee supervisors think of long
time unemployed trainees. Two groups were compared, one group that had gone
through a course in improving their psychosocial work environment and one
control group that shares the same characteristic but hasn't had the same course.
The study was based on seven semi structured interviews, where four of the
interviewees have had the work environment course, and three hadn't had it. The
perspective used in the analysis was based on parts of Warr's vitamin analogy
model. Warr's theory contains twelve environment characteristics that all are
necessary for peoples' well-being at work. Five of the twelve environmental
'vitamins' were used to analyze the data... (More)

model. Warr's theory contains twelve environment characteristics that all are
necessary for peoples' well-being at work. Five of the twelve environmental
'vitamins' were used to analyze the data from the seven interviews. The following
five characteristics were used: Opportunity for personal control, externally
generated goals, environmental clarity, contact with others and supportive
supervision. The conclusions made were the following: The persons who had
attained the course in improving psychosocial work environment showed in the
interviews a more understanding point of view towards long time unemployed
traines compared to the control group. (Less)
