This paper investigates the implications of expectations, demands and stress in a work-environment and the potential consequences of these. The paper utilizes the case-study by Jesper Tynell, in which a Danish IT company and their implementation of a new HRM department to combat their five-year long revenue loss streak, was studied. The case-study is analyzed through the theories of Richard Lazarus’ theory on coping and stress, and Pierre Bourdieu’s theories on habitus, field and capital.
Firstly the specific problem is introduced, and then the theories and their respective theoretical framework and how it affects the paper are introduced as well. In this section there will be a methodical introduction including reflections on the group’s own position on the methods used. Here the paper uses the principles of Bent Flyvbjerg in order to carry out the case-utilization process correctly.
Secondly the paper analyzes on the case-study, by utilizing the theories in regarding the specific problem the paper examines. This section transitions into the third section of discussion. The paper discusses the implications of environment and its effects on the individual situated in complex relationships that goes as to exemplify a modern Danish company employing academics.
Lastly the paper concludes that the expectations of a wish of self-improvement, set forth by the employer or the company, potentially can result in negative consequences for their employees, but this is highly dependent on the specific person-variables, their coping strategies and habitus of the person in question.
