Sammanfattning

The paper explores relationship between organizational context and auditors’ well-being. Where organizational context is explored through the prism of three types of organizational culture: clan, hierarchy, adhocracy and market and well-being represented by job satisfaction, life satisfaction and life balance. The study is based on the survey of 209 Swedish auditors performed in spring 2014, and explored the relationship between organizational context and auditors’ well-being by the means of correlations and multiple regression analysis. Results of the study indicate that clan organizational culture is the strongest positive driver of auditors’ well-being. Study also indicates that hierarchy culture has a positive effect on auditors’ job satisfaction, while market culture has a negative influence on auditors’ life balance. Findings of the study have implications for both theory and practice, in that it established the link between different aspects of organizational context and auditors’ well-being consequently suggesting human resource strategy of managing organizational context to auditing firms.
