Abstract [sv]

Hälsofrämjande ledarskap är ett komplext fenomen som innefattar att främja hälsan i arbetslivet med hälsofrämjande aktiviteter. Studien fokuserade på det salutogena perspektivet, hälsa och hälsofrämjande arbete, arbetsrelaterad stress, arbetsmiljölagen samt ledarskapsteorier som kan kopplas till det hälsofrämjande ledarskapet. Studien syftade till att undersöka ledares upplevelser av hälsofrämjande ledarskap och resurser som främjar deras hälsa. Elva ledare från två organisationer deltog i studien.  Halvstrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes som kategoriserades genom meningskoncentrering. Analysen resulterade i ett antal slutsatser som var gemensamma för flertalet av respondenterna. Majoriteten av ledarna ansåg sig inte vara hälsofrämjande ledare och var fokuserade på fysiska friskvårdsåtgärder snarare än psykosociala. Ledarna  hade en uppfattning om att det rådde otydlig ansvarsfördelning, bristande kunskap  om hälsofrämjande ledarskap, men tillgång till hälsofrämjande resurser.

Abstract [en]

Health promotion leadership is complex and includes promoting health in the workplace. The study focuses on the salutogenetic perspective, health promotion, work-related stress, work environment legislation and leadership theories that can be linked to health promotion leadership. This study aims to investigate if leaders have knowledge about health-promoting leadership and access to resources that are health promoting. Eleven leaders from two organizations participated. Semi-structured interviews were conducted thematised through meaningful concentrator. The analysis showed several recurring statements amongst a majority of the respondents which were that the leaders did not view themselves as health- promoting leaders and their focus were on physical working environment rather than psychological. The perception of responsibility in the matter was unclear in both organizations and the leaders generally lacked knowledge of health promotion leadership while having access to health promoting resources.
