Abstract:The home care sector is making use of many self-managing teams, despite the usage of these teams there is still a huge amount of work-pressure. This research searched for reasons why despite the usage of self-managing teams, there is still work pressure in the home care sector. Many different models have been created to analyze work pressure however these models have not been applied yet in the context of self-managing teams in the home care sector. This research therefore tested the job demands and control options variables of the nurses in six different self-managing teams of Carint Reggeland through an online questionnaire (n=39) with a 5-point scale. The results showed a low degree of autonomy and time autonomy, furthermore a high score for task disruptions and task variations were found. Based on the literature some possible explanations are given for these high and low scores. Because of this research the self-managing teams of Carint Reggeland know the possible source of work pressure despite the usage of self-management. With the insights, Carint Reggeland will be better able to take action on these sources.
