Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka vilka upplevda faktorer som påverkar nyttjandet av friskvårdsförmånerna ur ett medarbetarperspektiv. Studien genomfördes med hjälp av en kvalitativ metod med semistrukturerade intervjuer med totalt åtta respondenter. De  teoretiska utgångspunkter som använts är Self-Determination Theory (SDT) och två kommunikationsmodeller. Resultatet visar att upplevda inre motivationsfaktorer till att anställda nyttjar sina friskvårdsförmåner är gemenskap, goda relationer, hälsa och välbefinnande samt egen vilja. Yttre upplevda motivationsfaktorer är viktminskning, fysisk styrka samt personliga mål. Resultatet synliggör även upplevda faktorer som hindrar   anställda att nyttja sina friskvårdsförmåner såsom avsaknad av tydlig och tillräcklig information, hög arbetsbelastning, vardagspusslet samt tid. Resultatet visar också upplevda faktorer som bidrar till ett stöd för anställda att nyttja sina friskvårdsförmåner. Dessa upplevda faktorer är stöd från närmaste chef, stöd från kollegor men främst det egna stödet som bidrar till att de anställda nyttjar sina friskvårdsförmåner. Resultatet visar även att om det finns spridning av information och möjlighet till feedback till närmste chef om friskvårdsförmåner, bidrar det till en högre nyttjandegrad.

The purpose of this study is to investigate what perceived factors that affects the use of health benefits from an employee perspective. The study was conducted by using a qualitative method with semistructured interviews with a total of eight respondents. The theories that were used are Self-Determination Theory (SDT) and two communication models. The result shows that internal motivation factors for employees utilizing their healthcare benefits are solidarity, good relationships, health and well-being as well as their own will. External motivation factors are weight loss, physical strength and personal goals. The result also reveals factors that prevent employees from utilizing their health benefits, such as lack of clear and adequate information, high workload, structure everyday life and time. The results also show factors that supports employees to utilizing their healthcare benefits. These factors are the support of the immediate supervisor, support from colleagues, but primarily it’s their own support that helps employees to utilizing their healthcare benefits. The result also shows that if there is a dissemination of information and the opportunity for feedback to the immediate supervisor about health benefits, it contributes to a higher degree of utilization.
