About Ylva Ulfsdotter Eriksson

YLVA ULFSDOTTER ERIKSSON, Ms in Human Recourse Development and Human Relations and Ph.D. in sociology. The doctoral thesis, from 2006, is entitled Occupations, Status and Gender. A sociological study of occupations in a segregated labour market (summary and abstract in English).

The research focus on sociology of occupations and professions, and what mediates differences within and between different occupations, such as status, gender, recognition and respect. Ulfsdotter Eriksson has also an interest in the HR-profession, its area of expertise and contributions to organizations.

Research
1) Perceptions of occupations and occupational prestige – mechanisms of the polarisation of the occupational structur (2017-2020). The project is conducted within the research program The Challenges of Polarization on Swedish Labour Market (2017-2022) and focus on occupational prestige and how changes in the job-wage structure may interact with the occupational status hierarchy whether this has changed over time. The project is partly a replication of a previous study on Perceptions of occupational prestige. The research program is led by Professor Tomas Berglund and financed by Forte. The research project on occupational prestige is led by Ulfsdotter Eriksson.


2) Individual wage setting from policy to practice
The project studies how assessments of qualifications, competencies and performance are done in five cases – from policy to practice: how policies and criteria are designed, perceived, interpreted and practiced by HR, managers, union representatives and employees. The aim is to describe interpretation and valuation processes in local wage setting, to identify and understand actors' various arguments, and to explain variations that affect the design and implementation, and whether the process is perceived as objective, consistent and transparent. The project is led by Professor Bengt Larsson and financed by The Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet).

3) ESSDA: Enhancing the Effectiveness of Social Dialogue Articulation in Europe (2018-2019). https://celsi.sk/en/projects/detail/28/eesda-enhancing-the-effectiveness-of-social-dialogue-articulation-in-europe/


Previous research projects
1) Perceptions on occupational prestige. 2002-2006 (thesis) (Riksbankens Jubileumsfond)


2) "Experiencing occupational prestige" (2006-2010). The project studied how employees in so-called low status jobs experienced and perceived their own occupation in relation to status evaluations, respect and recognition, knowledge and competences and occupational identity. (Vetenskapsrådet, The Swedish Research Council)


3) “Descriptions of occupations for career guidance – a matter of the free choice of the individual or the differentiation of the labour force?”(2010-2014. Forte). The project studied occupational descriptions produced by the Swedish Public Employment Service (Arbetsförmedlingen), and how occupational descriptions are structured with regard to gender, social class etc.

4) 2012-2016, I followed the process in developing global standards for HRM. The international standardization organization ISO is responsible. As a researcher, I am following the Swedish task group.
