Sammanfattning

Research on work environment and employees' health or well-being shows that there are clear links between specific environmental factors and health. For example between perceived workload and perceived stress reactions. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the quality of cooperation in teams have any link to employees health and well-being. The study is longitudinal, following a team development project in schools and preschools where consultants intervened in the teams with the purpose of increasing the effectiveness of the cooperation. The teams were measured before and after intervention with respect to how effectively they cooperated and how they perceived their job satisfaction, levels of stress and emotional exhaustion. The research questions were: 1. To what extent did the teams develop over time towards more effective cooperation? 2. To what extent did team members the health and well-being change? 3. How was stability in the membership of the teams a factor in this context? Fifty-four teams in schools and preschools were measured before and after the team development interventions with Group Development Questionnaire, GDQ, and levels of stress reactions, emotional exhaustion and job satisfaction. The interventions were based on a needs analysis based on GDQ and the ambition to increase the level of shared mental models by using a model called "the goal matrix". The results indicate that the teams to some extent developed towards more effective cooperation since measures of dependency and inclusion decreased and the level of conflicts decreased. By contrast, members' levels of well-being did not change over time. An additional analysis was done by separating the teams that was stable with regard to membership between measurements from teams that were unstable, i.e. being fragmented, merged or were facing an impending closure. The additional analysis showed that job satisfaction increased over time in the teams that were stable and that it decreased in the teams that were unstable. The discussion addresses the question if team development may be a way to strengthen employees' well-being.
