Abstract [en]

The construction industry has been the least gender equal and most male-dominated in Sweden and it is important to analyze the problem and the underlying causes. Statistics show that 99 % of all craftsmen were men in 2020. The recruitment process plays an important role in the gender equality issue considering that it is where corporations show their position on both gender equality and how they work with the gender equality issues they face.  The purpose of this study is to investigate the gender equality challenges in recruitment and how major operators work with this process.  The method used is literature studies and qualitative studies. Interview studies have been key to answering our questions. We have six interviewed operators with different turnover. Respondents selected by the individuals who recruit construction related personnel to their corporation.  The results show that different large corporations with different turnovers decide how they implement gender equality in their recruitment companies in the construction industry. It has also shown a clear connection with the fact that the large corporations with the most turnover have a much better grasp of the gender equality issue and work with constant improvements and challenges, which also shows a clear structure in gender equality work within recruitment in the corporation 

Abstract [sv]

Byggbranschen är en av de minst jämställda och mest mansdominerade bransch i Sverige, vilket gör det viktigt att analysera problemet och bakomliggande orsakerna. Statistiken visar att 99 % av alla hantverkarna var män år 2020. Rekryteringsprocessen spelar en viktig roll i jämställdhetsfrågan med tanke på det är där organisationer visar sin ställning till både jämställdhet och hur de jobbar med jämställdhetsfrågan. Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka jämställdhetsutmaningar i rekrytering samt hur olika stora aktörer jobbar med denna process. Metoden som används är litteraturstudier samt kvalitativa intervjustudier. Intervjustudierna har varit en centralpunkt för att besvara våra frågeställningar. Vi har intervjuat 6 aktörer som har olika omsättning. Respondenter har valts av de individer som rekryterar byggrelaterade personal till sin organisation.

Resultaten visar att organisationernas storlek och omsättning avgör hur de implementerar jämställdhet i sina rekryteringar i byggbranschen. Det har också visats tydligt samband på att de stora aktörerna som omsätter mest har betydligt bättre koll på jämställdhetsfrågan och jobbar med ständiga förbättringar och utmaningar vilket också visar en tydlig struktur i jämställdhetsarbete inom rekrytering i organisationen.
