Abstract [sv]

En enkätundersökning utfördes på ledare inom olika företag i Örebro och Tranås. Syftet var att jämföra ledares upplevda stressnivå på små, mellanstora och stora företag, samt att undersöka deras stresshanteringsförmåga, hälsa och arbetstillfredsställelse. Enkäten bestod av 117 frågor som mätte olika stressförhållanden som t.ex. kvantitativ överstimulering, rolloklarhet och ledarskap. Vidare mätte enkäten mental och fysisk hälsa, stresshanteringsmetoder, individegenskaper och arbetstillfredsställelse. Ingen signifikant gruppskillnad fanns gällande ledarnas upplevda stressnivå beroende på om de arbetade på ett litet, mellanstort eller stort företag. Ledarna hade en låg upplevd stressnivå, god fysik och mental hälsa och trivdes med sin arbetssituation. Respondenterna använde sig av konstruktiva stresshanteringsmetoder så som förnuftsorientering och uppgiftsorientering. Svagt ledarskap var den faktor som starkast korrelerade med upplevd stressnivå och arbetstillfredsställelse.
