Swedish National Defence College.
2002 (Swedish)Student paper otherStudent thesis
Abstract [sv]

Uppsatsen syftar till att diskutera motivationsfaktorer som utgör grund för officeren att delta eller attinte delta i internationell tjänst i förband. Behovsparametrar utvecklade från Maslow, Hertzberg ochMcClelland utgör grund för studien av det empiriska underlaget. Genom enkätundersökningundersöks 155 officerare, en grupp vid FHS Stabsprogram och en grupp bestående av kompanilagfrån tre armébrigader. Undersökningen svarar på vilken betydelse motivationsparametrar har förställningstagandet och vilka förändringar som efterfrågas för att motivera officerare att delta iinternationell tjänst i förband. Undersökningen bekräftar inte vissa resultat av tidigare forskn ing.Undersökningen visar att armén har en klart högre grad av villighet att delta i internationell tjänst ochatt bara en tredjedel av de år 2002 blivande majorerna och örlogskaptenerna avser delta i internationellaenheter. De sociala behoven anförs av huvuddelen som skäl att inte delta och viktigastemotiven för att delta är behoven av utveckling och meningsfullheten i arbetet. De i första handefterlysta förändringarna för att motivera officeren är ekonomisk ersättning, flexiblare och förändratrotationssystem och bättre stöd till anhöriga.

Abstract [en]

After the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Swedish Armed Forces are undergoing amajor reorganisation and downscaling of materiel and personnel. At the sametime, international commitments are increasing as well as the need for officersin the Swedish international units. The earlier Swedish units, for example, inBosnia and the present units in Kosovo have already shown difficulties whenrecruiting officers. That problem might become even bigger in the near future.The purpose of this essay is to discuss and reflect upon the officers’ motivationfor taking part in units aimed for international duties.In the essay, answers are given to the following questions:- What importance do motivation factors have on the officers’ decision oftaking part, or not taking part in the units for international duties?- What changes do the officers want to obtain in order to motivatethemselves to take part in the units for international duties?The theoretical framework in common motivation theories and especially thehuman needs and motivation theories is by Maslow, McClelland andHertzberg. Based on their theories, a tool for analysis consisting of sixmotivation factors has been created. The method is qualitative with a deductiveapproach including a quantitative, descriptive presentation of the result.The investigation includes 155 officers, second lieutenants to majors. Theprocurement of empiri has taken place by using mail questionnaires and writtensources.The empirical research provides some results and the main conclusions are,that the most important motivation factor for those who choose not to joininternational units is social needs. It is one of the reasons for approximately 80% in that group. The main motivation factors for those who decide to apply forinternational duty are the desire for growth in individual development andlearning and the need for meaningfulness in work. The most important factorsto change, in order to increase the level of motivation are economical benefits,a more flexible and changed rotation system and better support to the next ofkin.The conclusion shows that only one third of this year’s graduated majors arewilling to join the international units and that it is possible to change most ofthe motivation factors in order to increase the willingness of the officers.
