Abstract [en]

This paper analyses the control by organizations of the extent to which their temporary workers (temps) identify with their work and the client company. The results are based on 37 semi-structured qualitative interviews. The data consists of preconceptions about staff hiring among workers and leaders who are responsible for assembling and testing components in a large Swedish company within the telecom industry. The findings shows that temps and their duties are described as separated from each other, meaning that the individual temp may be used according to the client company's requests, regardless of the actual temp's personal preferences. Thereof the findings show a complex organizational control of temps' identifications where temps appear to be a human resource but not a person. Therefore the applied control of temporary employment is characterized by an exceptionally rationalistic approach to identification partially by the use of a team sports metaphor in the client company
