Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte är att belysa enhetschefers upplevelser och värderingar av samarbetet med en företagshälsovård angående upprepad korttidsfrånvaro. Kvalitativ metod med semistrukturerade intervjuer användes. Tio enhetschefer i två kommuner intervjuades och resultatet bygger på deras subjektiva upplevelser. I studien framkom att enhetscheferna generellt anser att grundtanken i samarbetet är bra med en bra struktur. Enhetscheferna har sedan länge själva arbetat med den upprepade korttidsfrånvaron och det är även de som bedömer vilka medarbetare som hänvisas till företagshälsovården. Arbetet med korttidsfrånvaron uppges ta mycket tid och enhetscheferna får ofta prioritera detta arbete på bekostnad av andra arbetsuppgifter. Företagshälsovårdens roll uppges vara av rådgivande och vägledande karaktär samt att de ska fungera som ett stöd för cheferna i deras roller. Enhetscheferna uppger att det är svårt att se tydliga resultat, i fråga om minskad korttidsfrånvaro som en konsekvens av samarbetet.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to illustrate how unit managers perceive and value collaboration with an occupational health company in the case of repeated short-term absence. Qualitative method with semi-structured interviews was used. Ten unit managers from two municipalities were interviewed and the result is based on their experiences. The study found that the unit managers generally believe that the spirit of cooperation is good and that it has a good structure. The unit managers has been handling the repeated short-term absence on their own for a long time, and they are also the ones who  are assessing which employees are to be referred to occupational health services. This work is said to take a lot of time and the unit managers may, in their role often give priority to the determent of other tasks. The occupational health company’s role is said to be of an advisory and guiding nature and that they will last as a support to the unit managers in their roles. The unit managers find it hard to see any results, in terms of reduced short-term absenteeism, referred to the cooperation.
