Abstract
This essay aims to increase understanding of important conditions for creating intrinsic motivation for employees. We want to give companies a reason to review the possibility of creating intrinsic motivation through the psychosocial work environment. We chose to investigate this with a theoretical foundation in Self-determining theory that today is at the forefront of modern research in work motivation and organization.
The study examines how well the variables Meaning of work, Recognition and Social community at work in the psychosocial work environment predict intrinsic and extrinsic motivation at work. A survey was conducted in collaboration with two companies where 78 people participated, 63% men and 37% women. Through a... (More)

The study examines how well the variables Meaning of work, Recognition and Social community at work in the psychosocial work environment predict intrinsic and extrinsic motivation at work. A survey was conducted in collaboration with two companies where 78 people participated, 63% men and 37% women. Through a standardized multiple regression analysis, a significant result showed that all three variables, Meaning of work, Recognition and Social community at work, together predicted intrinsic motivation at work, but not extrinsic motivation. Meaning of work and Recognition also predicted intrinsic motivation individually. The results of the study contributed to additional evidence that companies using Meaning of work, Recognition and Social Community at work can create internal motivation for their employees. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
Den här uppsatsen syftar till att öka förståelsen för vad som är viktiga förutsättningar för att skapa inre motivation hos anställda. Vi vill ge företag en anledning att undersöka möjligheten att skapa inre motivation genom den psykosociala arbetsmiljön. Vi valde att undersöka detta med en teoretisk grund i Self-determination theory som idag ligger i framkant av modern forskning inom arbetsmotivation och organisation. Studien undersöker hur väl variablerna Mening i arbetet, Erkännande och Social gemenskap inom den psykosociala arbetsmiljön predicerar inre och yttre motivation på arbetet. En enkätstudie bedrevs i samarbete med två företag där 78 personer deltog, 63% män och 37% kvinnor. Genom en standard multipel regressionsanalys erhölls... (More)

En enkätstudie bedrevs i samarbete med två företag där 78 personer deltog, 63% män och 37% kvinnor. Genom en standard multipel regressionsanalys erhölls ett signifikant resultat som visade att alla tre variabler, Mening i arbetet, Erkännande och Social gemenskap, tillsammans predicerade inre motivation på arbetet, men inte yttre motivation. Mening i arbete och Erkännande predicerade även inre motivation enskilt. Studiens resultat bidrog till ytterligare bevis att företag med hjälp av Mening i arbetet, Erkännande och Social gemenskap kan skapa inre motivation för sina anställda. (Less)
