The counselling dilemma (English)
Abstract [en]

Counselling is one of the most commonly utilized tools in the work place. The purpose of this paper is to explore how four employers utilize early counselling sessions related to absences due to illness. A qualitative research method has been used and four human resource managers have been interviewed. The research questions have been divided into three categories: the counselling structure, the counselling model and the counselling dilemmas. The interviews have been transcribed and processed through these three categories. The results show that most employers are positive regarding conducting initial counselling sessions related to work absences. The experience of the session can vary depending on one’s role in the counselling session. Counselling sessions related to short term work absences are impacted by labour legislation, changes in the workplace, the company culture, and the amount of power held by the person who conducts the counselling session. One of the conclusions of this study is that it is difficult to combine initial counselling sessions regarding work absences with career counselling 

Abstract [sv]

Samtalet har många numera samtalet som sitt främsta arbetsinstrument. Syftet med den här är att undersöka hur fyra arbetsgivare använder sig av tidiga samtal vid sjukfrånvaro En kvalitativ metod har använts och intervjuer har genomförts med fyra chefer med personalansvar i olika verksamheter. Forskningsfrågorna har delats in i tre områden, samtalets struktur, -modell och -dilemma. Intervjuerna har transkriberats och bearbetats utifrån de tre områdena. Resultatet visar att de flesta arbetsgivarna är positiva till det tidiga samtalet. Samtalet kan upplevas olika beroende på vilken roll man har i samtalet. Samtal vid korttidsfrånvaro påverkas av samhällets regler, arbetslivets förändringar, företagets kultur och den makt samtalsledaren har. En slutsats som dragits i den här studien är att det är svårt att förena det tidiga samtalet med vägledning.
