"the Security can be in a kind turns into chaos when a company ends up in crisis."
"Swedbank, the royal dramatic theatre, the Metro and the public employment service are recent examples where employees are suddenly faced with a new reality at work."
"– The hardest part is not knowing, " says psychologist Sara Henrysson Eidvall."
"Several major Swedish companies are in crisis. For the employees, it probably means a substantial concern, " says Sara Henrysson Eidvall, specialist in work and organizational psychology."
"That you know, so she describes as deeply human. It applies both to the economic aspect, the social security system."
"– Work really means a lot to us when it comes to the structures, routines, colleagues and contexts. Change is always a little painful, " says Henrysson Eidvall."
"Exactly how you are affected depends to a large extent on whether the crisis comes from outside or from within," she explains. In the example, the employment service, where it plans to add the bottom 132 of the country offices because of political decisions, the result may be a strengthening of the collegial feeling."
"Initially, it can trigger the feeling of wanting to show what they can, and so can the performance increase for a while," she says."
"Worse is it if the question relates to a lost confidence in the management."
"– Trust is nothing you can get, it deserves it. It is well, therefore, in such a case it always kicks high-level managers, they know that it is such an uphill climb to win back trust, " she says."
"the Failing Metro Media House was recently the company currently has liabilities of over 59 million, including intercompany liabilities. The employees were not out of his marslön the 25th."
"I have been very angry, but now I have started to calm me down," says one of the employees at the company."
"He and his colleagues came to work as usual the day after the news of the lost wages."
" People have come to work, but maybe a little later than usual. We have not been working so much, but most sat and talked. I think everyone is a bit shocked. But the workplace is also the best place to be in order to be a little calmer and maybe find out something more than you knew. It is as well as the karriärmässiga the home, it is in all cases so I know."
"the Mood of the Metro has been a bit of roller coaster the last few days."
"– The first few days it was printed mood, one might say. Mixed with, at least in my department, a right cynical mood. You garvar to an end for the spectacle. Now it has probably turned to be a bit more hopeful again. You have a little more confidence again for the managers and owners, now when you notice that they have promised are starting to happen. But it feels like it starts at zero in any way with the confidence and job satisfaction."
"Gossip, vislek and Facebook"
"For employers who want to take care of their employees, are information the A and the O, view Sara Henrysson Eidvall."
"– Also to inform about that "
"– Otherwise it will be gossip, visklek and Facebook."
"On the Metro says the employee that TT talked with that it was difficult for managers to support staff as they, too, were equally surprised and affected."
"– But then you say that you have tried. But since all are in the same boat, you don't know what to talk about. I think many have had a maktlöshetskänsla. The fate is now in the hands of the owners who is sitting in London. You know very little and the responses are very vague because no one knows very much, " says the Metroanställde."
"Sara Henrysson Eidvall think that today's organizations are less transparent than in the past, still goes the information much faster. The explanation is that it often comes from traditional or social media, rather than from their own company."
"– Take Swedbank, for example, if you are looking at their local offices so I don't think that you know so much. You know, through the media, and then it might come a few internal releases, but in general, you work enough on as usual, " she says."
"– internal Communication is so very important, for otherwise the people will act upon what they have read on Facebook, as do we all, " says Henrysson Eidvall."
"TT: What can you as an employee do to manage the situation?"
"– Not gossiping, but try to get as much facts as possible. To act upon them is point one, " says Henrysson Eidvall."
"For the head, that is a challenge in finding the balance between not to ignore the staff's concerns while at the same time, do not get pulled with and infected by olustkänslan."
"But there are also things to learn to work in a company that ends up in crisis. The person on the Metro that TT talked with have for security sake started to look for new job and then set new questions to the potential employer."
"– I met some in the week and one of my questions to them was how ownership looks like. I have not cared about before. I have suddenly learned a lot of new company structures."
