How big is the problem of macho culture? The macho index is a method of investigating it.
Byggcheferna’s macho index is a measurement tool that can be used by everyone. It has been developed in collaboration with psychologist and researcher Magnus Johansson at Oslo Metropolitan University.
A macho index is calculated through a survey with eleven questions. The result shows the degree of macho culture as a percentage.
Byggcheferna has launched the macho index because the macho culture is a root cause of many problems in the building and construction sectors – including accidents, corruption, gender inequality, and recruitment difficulties. A measured value makes it easier to see the problem, understand what the cause is and strive for an improved figure.
