Tomas Lindmark conducts research in social work with a particular focus on the marketisation of care. He teaches quantitative methodology and statistics in the social work programme and in criminology.
Tomas is engaged in a research project that investigates the psychosocial work environment and well-being of nursing home staff and managers across different ownership types.
As part of this project, a systematic review was conducted, as well as an examination of procurement documents and interviews with first-line managers. In addition, there is an ongoing questionnaire study regarding care workers´ psychosocial work environment. The project is expected to provide in-depth knowledge about the opportunities and challenges faced by staff and to identify differences between different ownership types in light of the marketisation of the welfare sector. The project is funded by the University of Gävle and is expected to be completed in 2024.
