    Försvarsmaktens syn på sin förankring i samhället2013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Ett antal faktorer som Försvarsmaktens (FM) volymminskning, värnpliktens vilande och avsaknaden av en mera akut nationell hotbild, har lett till att försvarets förankring i samhället inte är lika självklar som tidigare. Detta kan bland annat ge negativa effekter på FM personalförsörjning liksom på förståelsen i samhället för FM verksamhet och i förlängningen befolkningens stöd för verksamheten. Syftet med denna studie var att hos företrädare för FM högre nivåer kartlägga uppfattningar av vad som är viktiga faktorer för förankringen i samhället. I rapporten redovisas informanternas uppfattningar om bland annat allmänhetens syn på FM, om relationen mellan FM och den politiska nivån samt politikernas respektive FM ansvar för myndighetens förankring i samhället. Rapporten lämnar förslag på åtgärder som FM kan göra för att positivt förbättra förankringen. Inom projektet har det tidigare tagits fram en forskningsöversikt och gjorts en intervjustudie med informanter från näringsliv, andra myndigheter, lokala politiker och politiska ungdomsförbund.

    Job satisfaction among the new Swedish all-volunteer soldiers: Challenges for leaders of the armed forces2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish Armed forces has been transformed to an all-volunteer force where the first soldiers began their employment in May 2011. The number of applicants has been satisfying but experiences from other countries indicate that it has been easier to recruit soldiers than to retain them. The aim of this study was to investigate factors affecting the job satisfaction of soldiers. Twenty-one informants who had been employed as soldiers for about a year participated in the study. They came from all three fighting services (army, air force, navy). The data was analyzed according to a grounded theory approach.

          The results show that the soldiers’ job satisfaction is related to their inner motivation to join the armed forces. The inner motivation can be divided into: (a) primarily searching for a job and a steady income, (b) a great interest in the armed forces and military tasks, and (c) an aim for a certain education/position. Factors that appear to affect the job satisfaction are, for example: co-workers, salary and experienced meaningfulness. Another result from the study is that strategic decisions at the Head Quarter level that involve unexpected readjustments at the local level tend to have a negative effect on of the soldiers’ motivation and job satisfaction because  the leaders at the local units are poorly prepared to handle the changes. This will be more thoroughly discussed during the presentation.

    Recruitment of women and persons born abroad to the Swedish all-volunteer force2014In: XVIII ISA World Congress of Sociology - 13-19 July 2014: Facing an Unequal World: Challenges for Global Sociology: Book of Abstracts, International Sociological Association , 2014, p. 456-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This presentation examines the recruitment base to the Swedish all-volunteer force; the applicants for basic military training. So far the recruitment to the all-volunteer force has been satisfactory in respect of qualitative terms; both regarding psychological and physiological capabilities. The capabilities of those selected for basic military training have been as good as or better in comparison to previous years with conscription. Despite good quality among the recruitment base there have been vacancies, and the future need of personnel will increase. To increase the recruitment base and the diversity among the personnel, the Swedish Armed Forces are working to promote and increase the proportion of women and employees with different ethnic background. Although the all-volunteer force provides a more heterogenic recruitment base in some aspects than the conscript based force, the all-volunteer force in Sweden mainly attracts young men that are born in Sweden. The proportion of women has significantly increased from conscription. However there are no well-known changes in the amount of persons born abroad. Studies have revealed that the proportion of applicants for the basic military training born in another country than Sweden decline in each step of the selection process. This presentation will focus on the recruitment of women and persons born abroad in the selection process to the Swedish Armed Forces.

    Rekryteringsunderlaget 2013: Det tredje året med ett frivilligbaserat försvar2013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the present study was to describe and analyze the recruitment base (applicants) for the Swedish all-volunteer force. Year 2013 was the third year with volunteer basic military training. Applicants of the basic military training were studied quantitatively and qualitatively throughout the selection process, from the recruitment test to selection for basic military training.

    The number of positions to fill was higher in 2013 compared to previous years with volunteer recruitment, and also so was the number of applicants; 21 869 applications implied 4.7 applications per position. The 2013 basic military training attracted many first time applicants (92 %). The overall number and percentage of female applicants increased. Compared to 2011 the number of female applicants doubled. However, the percentage of women declined throughout the stepwise selection procedure, and at the selection for basic military training the percentage was lower compared to 2012. Like 2011 and 2012, the all-volunteer force in Sweden mainly attracted young men that were born in Sweden.

    The quality of the 2013 applicants was good. However, the results in psychological and physiological capabilities of the tested and the selected individuals were not as good as in 2011 and 2012. Despite this qualitative setback, the report indicates a positive self-selection process of voluntary candidates regarding psychological capabilities.

    Rekryteringsunderlaget 2014: Från ansökningsomgångar till flexibel antagning2015Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med denna studie var att beskriva och analysera utvecklingen av det frivilliga försvarets rekryteringsunderlag, kvatitativt och kvalitativt.Rekryteringsunderlaget följs under antagningsprocessen, det vill säga från rekryttest, via antagningsprövning till det att individer blir antagningsbara för grundläggande militär utbildning (GMU). Det är ännu för tidigt att uttala sig om effekter på rekryteringsunderlagets kvaliteter och bortfall under antagningsprocessen av den flexibla antagningen som infördes under våren 2014. Generellt har antalet sökande 2014 och deras värden på antagningsprövningens tester varit av god kvalitet. Rekryteringsunderlaget 2014 var väldigt likt rekryteringsunderlagen 2011-2013. Statistiskt signifikanta skillnader erhölls i jämförelse med tidigare år men det rörde sig om små skillnader av liten verklig betydelse. Frivillighet har hittills inte medfört försämrad kvalitet i rekryteringsunderlaget så som befarat, utan snarare en ökad kvalitet som med tiden tycks plana ut och stabiliseras.

    Systematic follow-up of the psychological selection to the Swedish Armed Forces2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The transition from a conscript-based force to an all-volunteer force in Sweden 2010 implied changes for selection and training as well as for the procedure for attrition from the basic military training. Today a recruit can leave basic military training within 24 hours and without further explanations. As a consequence, the changed procedure when a recruit leaves training has caused a lack of information of reasons for attrition and lack of feedback to the Swedish Defence Recruitment Agency who is responsible for the assessments and selection of recruits. The first step to re-establish a systematic follow-up of the psychological selection and to validate the selection procedure has started. The aim of this project is to gain knowledge of reasons for attrition from basic military training in order to predict attrition and to predict successful 76 recruitment (defined as signing a contract with the Swedish Armed Forces). Results from 2015 (478 questionnaires and 36 interviews) indicate that it is not only the selection that contributes to successful recruitment, but also the training period and the leadership of the officers. Further, the results have facilitated the development of questionnaires, interview guides, instructions and methods for future studies. The project is a collaboration between the Swedish Armed Forces including the Internal Occupational Health Care Center and Human Resources, the Swedish Defence Recruitment Agency and the Swedish Defence University.

    Trying out a systematic follow-up of the selection to the Swedish Armed Forces2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Attrition is a serious and costly problem for many Armed Forces. The attrition rate in the Swedish Armed Forces basic military training 2014 was 16 percent. The main reasons given for dropping out were health/ injury related but also reasons related to changed career ambitions, such as starting another line of work or studies. The aim of our project that we will present is to gain a deeper understanding about the recruits who choose to leave compared to those who remain during basic military training. Another goal is to plan a long-term systematic follow-up with the possibility to develop requirements, assessments, selection criteria and training by evaluating the predictive power of the selection. The project includes a psychological follow-up of the drop outs, and will later also include physiological and medical follow-ups. The project is a collaboration between the Swedish Armed Forces including the Internal Occupational Health Care Center and Human Resources, the Swedish Defence Recruitment Agency and the Swedish Defence University. In the presentation the project will be illustrated from different perspectives. Aim, practical implementation and results of the qualitative and quantitative data collections will also be presented.

    Effective Recruitment of Military Women: Developing New Methods2017In: Res Militaris, E-ISSN 2265-6294, no 4, p. 1-16Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden is one of the most gender equal countries in the world, but this is not reflected in the representation of women in the Swedish Armed Forces. Women have increased in both numbers and proportion since the transformation to an all-volunteer force in 2010, but the gender distribution is still skewed and women tend to drop out of the selection process for basic military training to a greater extent than men. The 2014 White Paper emphasizes that the Swedish Armed Forces should actively work to increase the proportion of women at all levels in order to achieve a more even gender distribution. This article describes a project that aims to increase the proportion of women who start basic military training in the Swedish Armed Forces. The project aims to identify successful methods and activities that motivate women and optimize their chances of passing the admission test, and basic military training. Women who passed the first step in the selection process for basic military training were contacted by the project. Women who were contacted and participated in activities were positive, stayed longer in the selection process, and looked forward to beginning basic military training.

    Why are young people attracted to the armed forces? A comparison between five countries2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    With the demographic change taking place all over European societies, the number of young people entering the labor market will decline. As a result, European Defense organizations will likely face severe recruitment and retention problems and find themselves in ever more direct competition with the private sector to attract the best candidates. To offset the shrinking base of recruitment, they will have to become more attractive to potential recruits and to increase the number of candidates in previously under-represented segments (for example, women and ethnic-cultural minorities). The paper presents selected results from an online survey carried out between Spring 2015 and Spring 2016 in five countries (Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland) among samples of young people. The paper presents how young people from these countries in general, view their armed forces, what their job expectations are, and what they think the armed forces can offer them. The multinational survey on which the analyses were based is part of a collaborative project conducted within the framework of the European Defense Agency on the impact of demographic change on the recruitment and retention of personnel in European armed forces.

    Why young people are not interested in a job in armed forces2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    With the demographic change taking place all over European societies, the number of young people entering the labor market is declining. As a result, the armed forces of Westernpostindustrial societies are facing severe recruitment problems and find themselves in ever more direct competition with the private sector to attract the best candidates. To offset the shrinking base of recruitment, they have to become more attractive to potential recruits and to increase the number of candidates in previously under-represented segments, particularly women. The paper presents selected results from an online survey carried out between Spring 2015 and December 2016 in 6 countries (Belgium, Canada, The Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland) among samples of young people. Following previous papers which dealt with the attractiveness of a military career among young people in general, and women and ethnic-cultural minorities in particular, this paper analyzes various factors that, presently, deter a lot of young women to consider joining the armed forces. The multinational survey on which the analyses are based is part of a collaborative research project conducted within the framework of the European Defense Agency on the impact of demographic change on the recruitment and retention of personnel in European armed forces.

    Breaking Away from a White Male Organization? Expert Opinions on Recruitment of Women and Ethnic Cultural Minorities2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    European armed forces still remain predominantly white, male organizations; their societies, however, are becoming more diverse and older. How will these armed forces be able to cope with this challenge? In order to answer this question, in the first semester of 2017, a group of scholars working within the framework of the European Defense Agency conducted an online survey among international experts in human and social sciences, defense managers, policymakers, and journalists specialized in defense issues. The aim of the survey, which followed a previous survey among young people on the attractiveness of the military as a job, was to measure their opinions and ask their suggestions concerning possible ways for increasing diversity in European armed forces. This paper presents some of the results of this multinational online survey.The unique feature of the study is that it is forward-looking and international: experts from various NATO and EU countries were asked how Defense organizations could deal with future challenges of demographic characteristics. The study, therefore, adds to our understanding of possible solutions for ensuring increased diversity in armed forces.

    Upplevelser av Grundläggande Militär Utbildning (GMU): Intervjustudie med utbildningsbefäl och rekryter2011Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med föreliggande studie var att med kvalitativ metodik fånga in de upplevelser av GMU som finns hos rekryter och utbildningsbefäl. Intervjuer utfördes därför med 25 rekryter och befäl under GMU 2 2011 på Amf 1 och I 19. Synen på Försvarsmakten präglades av att organisationen har en viktig uppgift samt att den erbjuder gemenskap och frihet i arbetet. Negativt är bland annat att FM upplevs som byråkratisk och att alla förändringsprocesser leder till osäkerhet. Inställningen till GMU var i stort positiv men vissa problem upplevdes kring själva omställningsprocessen. Rekryterna uppfattades generellt som motiverade men de ådrog sig många skador och att de fysiska kraven vid rekryteringen ansågs lågt ställda. Utbildningstiden är kort och GMU blir därför väldigt komprimerad. Då GMU-rekryterna är frivilliga och blivande kollegor menade flera att det krävs ett annat förhållningssätt och ett mjukare ledarskap. Detta kan dock kontrasteras mot att det beskrevs en förväntan om att det ska vara en viss grad av tuffhet i en militär utbildning. Vardagliga glädjeämnen var att få vistas i naturen, möjligheten att få åka på internationell tjänst, kamratanda och att ha möjlighet att förändra något i samhället. Irritationsmoment var oro för utbildningens krav och för examinationer.

    Anchoring Sweden’s Post-conscript Military: Insights From Elites in the Political and Military Realm2018In: Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The universal nature of conscription ties or anchors broad segments of society to the military. What happens to societal anchoring after the draft ends? Using in-depth interviews with two groups of elites, this article explores factors that promote and hinder the Swedish Military’s societal anchoring post-conscription. The first group consisted of 18 executives at the Swedish Armed Forces (SAF) headquarters with strategic positions in relation to societal anchoring. The second group consisted of 15 representatives from the corresponding political level: members of the parliamentary Committee on Defense and their officials. The interviews were semistructured and analyzed according to a grounded theory-inspired approach. Main themes concerning obstacles were the public’s low interest and dated knowledge, an unclear political debate resulting in vague expectations concerning the SAF, as well as unclear responsibility for informing the public, and confidence gaps between the military and the political elite.

    Jag vill hellre jobba som diplomat: en studie av värnpliktiga på Arméns jägarbataljon som valt att inte söka internationell tjänst2010Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Den första juli 2010 gick Sverige från ett försvar baserat på plikt till ett försvar baserat på frivillighet. I och med denna förändring kan inte längre värnplikten garantera personalförsörjningen till internationella insatser. Att kunna förstå vad som bidrar till en god rekrytering av personal, såväl kvantitets- som kvalitetsmässigt, är avgörande för hur väl Försvarsmakten lyckas med personalförsörjningen. Syftet med denna studie var att få en djupare förståelse för faktorer som bidrar till valet att inte söka internationell tjänst hos värnpliktiga jägarsoldater. Lika viktigt som det är att identifiera faktorer som bidrar till ett vidare engagemang i Försvarsmakten, lika viktigt är det att belysa faktorer som synes påverka individens val att inte söka internationell tjänst. Resultaten visade att skälen till att inte välja att söka internationell tjänst kan förstås utifrån en huvudkategori, Andra planer, samt fem omgivande faktorer.

    Officer recruitment in Sweden: Enhancing the process2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the recruitment process for the three-year officer program (OP), it is a big dropout in the period from application to the start of the program. Because of this is, the OP has not been fully manned since 2008. To supply the Swedish Armed Forces with a sufficient number of officers are a priority and henceforth the SAF have a need for increasing the numbers of officers. Furthermore, a large number of retirements within the officer corps have also reduced the numbers of officers. In order to increase recruiting efficiency and increase the proportion of individuals who complete the entire recruitment process to OP, a project was launched at the Swedish Defence University designed to evaluate the recruitment into, and dropouts from the OP. Results carried out under the project shows that the earlier people jump out of the recruitment process, the older and more academically educated, they tend to be. Further, the results show that personal contact from officers and cadets already in the system has a positive relation on people’s willingness to complete the recruitment process. The project implemented a different recruitment strategy in 2016, the outcome showed that the percentage of applicants who started the program was higher than before, and the dropout rate was lower than ever.

    Metodutveckling för effektivare rekrytering av särskilda målgrupper (MER): Slutrappport2017Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Försvarsmaktens (FM) och Försvarshögskolans (FHS) projekt Metodutveckling för effektivare rekrytering av särskilda målgrupper (MER) syftar till att utveckla och utvärdera aktiviteter som attraherar och rekryterar målgrupper som FM har svårt att nå via de vanliga rekryteringsmetoderna. Under 2014-2015 var kvinnor som klarat rekryttestet den särskilda målgrupp som var i centrum. Det övergripande målet med projektet var att öka antalet och andelen kvinnor som tar anställning eller tecknar avtal efter genomförd grundläggande militär utbildning (GMU). Detta skedde bland annat genom kontaktskapande och aktiviter i perioden från godkänt rekryttest via antagningsprövning och fram till GMU, det vill säga jobba med individer som visat intresse och potential för FM, vilket också är kostnadseffektivt. Kontaktskapandet och aktiviteterna bidrar till att kvinnorna känner sig inkluderade och kan skapa sig ett bättre beslutsunderlag för vidare avancemang i FM eller inte.

    Sammanfattningsvis demonstrerar projektet att det verkar vara effektivt att arbeta i rekryteringsfasen med personer som har visat intresse och potential. Projektet bidrar med ny kunskap för ökad rekryteringseffekt. Genom att utveckla metoder, mäta utfall av kontakt, arbetssätt och aktiviteter kan vi mäta rekryteringseffekt och därigenom utveckla styrande dokument, metoder samt arbetssätt. En erfarenhet är att många som söker sig till FM är osäkra på vad ett jobb i FM innebär och många söker till FM utan att veta vad de vill eller kan göra inom organisationen. De individer som kontaktas av projektet har ofta frågor som relativt enkelt kan besvaras.

    Aktiviteterna i projektet är uppskattade och anses värdefulla av deltagarna. Aktiviteterna stärker intresset för att fortsätta i rekryteringsprocessen och ta anställning eller teckna avtal i FM och undanröjer onödiga hinder för att fortsätta mot anställning/avtal.
