On Tuesday, he was one of the managers who participated in the jazz up your staff meeting where the appeal by the 40 employees at SVT Culture for the first time is read out. In the text, now published in Expressen, describes the signatories to three specific areas of concern, including a destructive working environment.
– My experience is that we have an active and good dialogue, both with employees and with the unions around the issues highlighted in the letter. We are also looking for some time on possible improvements of the work environment and personalbemanning in the area in which employees relate to, " says Andreas Bedinger to DN.
the SVT employees in the petition: ”Abused, manipulated, neglected, end-of-life”
all of which are freelancers or temporary employees, expressed that their work situation makes that many become stressed out, burned out and sick”, and that several have ”feelings of having been abused, manipulated, neglected, exhausted, and afraid to take different decisions in life – for example, to raise a family”.
"I understand what they are pointing at," says Andrew Bedinger and continues:
" It is obviously very boring that they experience it this way. We are jättemåna that we shall manage all employees, regardless of employment status in a nice way that we are and will remain an attractive and fair employer. It is really important, " says Andrew Bedinger.Andreas Bedinger, head of the division for public television SVT. Photo: Photo: Anders Strömquist/SVT
He highlighted that the SVT will need to work with different types of contracts, not just open-ended contracts.
– It is included in the balance on the workforce, and in SVT's mission, to promote the throughput, the diversity and variation in the range and types of production and to be innovative in both form and content. We therefore see a continuing need to there are forms of employment which means that we can enrich the activities of the programme in different ways. The important question is how the SVT handles the balance.
" I understand that it affects work and how you perceive their work situation. I already took about a month ago the initiative to I want to we look at how manning looks at the culture news. It is an ongoing work which I have both with the bosses there and with the arbetsmiljöombuden, with employees and the union.
the Tray agree with the criticism of the SVT: ”A modern workplace doesn't look like this”
the pressure of the working environment for employees at SVT Culture and Society has been known for a long time. In a survey carried out last year indicated less than 30 per cent of the respondents that the stress level was reasonable, and only 35 per cent considered that they had good enough recovery. I ask Andreas Bedinger why you have not previously done actions in order to improve the work environment:
" We have taken action when we have received the signals, that relate to the employment and the working environment. We always are, and they are required to do. The last time we have an even greater grip, which is about the workforce and, secondly, the working environment and powers on the department in general. It is an internal work with the managers and the employees that I want to continue to make internally, and we have put a plan for the now in the spring, " says Andreas Bedinger.
" of Course do not see the SVT no profit in that people experience the things that they expressed in this letter. Without the profit that the SVT is trying to achieve through the system is to find a balance with that, there is a mix of people with open-ended contracts and people who do not have permanent positions, which will check for a limited time and contribute their perspective and their stories that we should be able to reflect contemporary Sweden, and be able to develop it continuously, " says Andreas Bedinger:
– It is also why we have such types of employment in our collective bargaining agreement which provides greater opportunity for it than what most of the other industries actually have. The question boils once again down to: how well can handle the SVT to manage the balance? It's probably different in different places and sometimes the flaws we unfortunately. But I am motivated and hopeful that we are now doing a good job, and have a good dialogue on how we will clarify the conditions of this section, and also on SVT.
