Abstract
The aim of this study was to investigate adult workplace bullying from a gender perspective within the Swedish Armed Forces. Do women consider themselves more exposed to bullying at a workplace dominated by men like the Swedish Armed Forces? The concept of work-related bullying is defined as repeated, negative acts that ridicule and isolate an employee. These actions may force the employee to quit their job. Adult bullying has been found to be a serious
social stress factor and may be seen as a critical life event. The instrument used in this study was the NAQ-R (Negative Acts Questionnaire-Revised) questionnaire with 22 items, a widely used and reliable instrument that measures workplace bullying. The results of this study showed no... (More)

The instrument used in this study was the NAQ-R (Negative Acts Questionnaire-Revised) questionnaire with 22 items, a widely used and reliable instrument that measures workplace bullying. The results of this study showed no significant difference between women and men in perceived bullying. This result is
supported by previous research. Previous research did not find significant differences from a gender perspective regarding exposure to bullying. However, in this study greater differences in the mean value for perceived bullying in other demographic data of the study; employment status and age were demonstrated. The findings in this study may be due to the Swedish Armed
Forces method and criteria when recruiting personnel. It may also be due to the Swedish Armed Forces code of conduct, that is being honored at authority level and at the individual level regarding, among other things, equality and gender equality. (Less)

Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka vuxenmobbning på arbetsplatsen inom
Försvarsmakten ur ett genusperspektiv. Upplever kvinnor på en mansdominerad arbetsplats såsom Försvarsmakten sig oftare utsatta för mobbning än vad män gör? Begreppet arbetsrelaterad mobbning definieras som upprepade, negativa handlingar som förlöjligar, isolerar och kan leda till att den anställde fördrivs från arbetsplatsen. Vuxenmobbning har visat sig vara en allvarlig social stressfaktor och kan ses som en kritisk livshändelse. Det
mätinstrument som användes i studien var NAQ-R (Negative Acts Questionnaire-Revised) enkät med 22 items, ett välbeprövat instrument som mäter mobbning på arbetsplatsen. Resultatet i denna studie visade inte på några signifikanta... (More)

Resultatet i denna studie visade inte på några signifikanta skillnader mellan kvinnor och män i upplevd mobbning. Resultatet stöds av tidigare forskning som inte heller funnit signifikanta skillnader ur ett könsperspektiv beträffande utsatthet för mobbning. Däremot visade denna studie större skillnader i medelvärde för upplevd mobbning för övrig demografisk data;anställningsform och ålder. Fynden i denna studie kan bero på Försvarsmaktens urvalskriterier vid rekrytering. Försvarsmakten har även en värdegrund på myndighetsnivå och en uppförandekod på individnivå, som uttrycker Försvarsmaktens och dess personals syn på bland annat jämställdhet och jämlikhet, vilket kan vara en bidragande faktor.
