Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to gain knowledge of the individual salaries within the public sector. My intention is to explore and gain understanding teachers' experiences of the individual salaries within the public sector. The essay examines the individual salaries from a critical perspective, and I would thus gain knowledge of the possible consequences of this system.
The thesis is a qualitative approach. It was carried out a total of eight semi-structured interviews and the people who were in the study were principals, chief negotiator, HR consultant, first three teachers and two ordinary teachers. Senior manager interviewed in order to obtain relevant background information and concrete knowledge about whether the payroll process... (More)

Senior manager interviewed in order to obtain relevant background information and concrete knowledge about whether the payroll process worked in a public organization. The result that emerged in the paper was that almost all respondents felt that was basically the individual salaries is a good system, but that there were several flaws in the system. The reason to this was that the respondents felt that the individual salaries was a good system was that anyone who works hard should get more pay and performance are measured. What the respondents felt that their individual salaries resulted in and contributed to was a confirmation of a job well done and it was a driving force in the work. Overall, perceived the individual salaries as a good system basically because valued work performance, but there were several flaws in the system that needed improvement. There were some who felt that the individual salaries were arbitrary and unfair system. This was due to various factors such as those that spoke for itself got better pay and others who worked in the silent thought they received less pay. The individual salaries also affect social relations and the cooperation of the working Group. Some teachers felt that the various side projects value was more than the actual teaching, which in turn generated more pay check, which led to discussions in the group. The obstacles that teachers generally felt was that public activities are bureaucratic and tax-financed were often tied by the budget and therefore that it was not as big wage differences between teachers.

Uppsatsen har en kvalitativ ansats. Det genomfördes totalt åtta semistrukturerade intervjuer och de personer som var med i studien var rektor, förhandlingschef, HR-konsult, tre förstelärare och två lärare. Personer i ledande befattning intervjuades i syfte att få relevant bakgrundsinformation och konkret kunskap om huruvida löneprocessen fungerar i en offentlig organisation. Resultatet som framkom i uppsatsen var att nästintill samtliga respondenter upplevde att i grunden var den individuella lönesättningen ett bra system, men att det fanns flera brister i systemet. Anledningen till att respondenterna ansåg att den individuella lönesättningen var ett bra system var att den som arbetar hårt ska få mer lön och att prestation värderas. Det som respondenterna upplevde att den individuella lönesättningen resulterade i och bidrog till var en bekräftelse på ett väl utfört arbete och att det var en drivkraft. Det förekom några som upplevde att den individuella lönesättningen var ett godtyckligt och orättvist system. Anledningen till detta var av olika faktorer såsom att de som talade för sig fick bättre lön medan andra som arbetade i det tysta upplevde att de fick mindre lön. Den individuella lönesättningen påverkar även de sociala relationerna och samarbetet i arbetsgruppen. Vissa lärare upplevde att olika sidoprojekt värdesattes mer än själva undervisningen som i sin tur genererade mer i lönekuvertet, vilket ledde till diskussioner i gruppen. De hinder som lärarna generellt upplevde var att offentliga verksamheter som är byråkratiska och skattefinansierade ofta var bakbundna av budget och därmed att det inte blev så stora löneskillnader mellan lärarna.
