Abstract (Swedish)
I takt med den växande digitaliseringen förändras förutsättningarna för arbetslivet och medarbetare ställer nya krav på sina arbetsgivare. Arbetet med Performance Management behöver förnyas för att möta framtidens behov. För att öka förståelsen för vad som får medarbetare att bli engagerade i sitt arbete, granskades IKEA och deras mål- och utvecklingsprocess. En elektronisk enkät skickades ut till cirka 500 medarbetare på två av IKEAs varuhus, varav 64 personer svarade. Enkäten undersökte hur engagerade medarbetarna är i sitt arbete i förhållande till hur de upplever mål- och utvecklingsprocessen. Resultatet visade att respondenterna upplever mål- och utvecklingsprocessen som engagerande och att hela processen till viss del korrelerar med... (More)

Enkäten undersökte hur engagerade medarbetarna är i sitt arbete i förhållande till hur de upplever mål- och utvecklingsprocessen. Resultatet visade att respondenterna upplever mål- och utvecklingsprocessen som engagerande och att hela processen till viss del korrelerar med hur engagerade de är i arbetet. Resultatet visar även att respondenterna önskar att de olika delarna av processen görs oftare. För vidare utveckling av IKEAs mål- och utvecklingsprocess rekommenderas att den blir mer levande och en del av det föränderliga arbetslivet. Det här indikerar på att företag i den digitala tidsåldern borde låta sina medarbetare kontinuerligt arbeta med en utvecklingsplan och lika ofta få feedback på sitt arbete. En sådan utveckling kan leda till mer engagerade medarbetare som presterar bättre i sitt arbete. (Less)
Abstract
In pace with the growing digitalization, the conditions for worklife and coworkers are in continuous change, which in turn changes the demands on the employees.

IKEA and their current work process with Performance Management was used as an investigative example to understand what makes coworkers engaged in their work. An electronic survey was sent out to about 500 coworkers from two of IKEAs stores, of which 64 of them answered. The survey investigated the coworkers overall work engagement in relation to how they experienced the Performance & Development process. The result showed that the respondents experienced the Performance & Development process as engaging and it partly correlates with their work engagement. The result also showed that the respondents wish the different parts of the process to be done more often. To develop the process furthermore it is recommended to be more developed and a part of the changing worklife. This means that companies in the digitalized age should let their coworkers continuously work with a development plan and continuously perceive feedback on their work. This could lead to more engaged coworkers that perform better in their work. (Less)
