Abstract [sv]

Samhället har under de senaste årtiondena inriktat sig allt mer på hälsa och välmående. Detta har skapat ett allt större intresse för organisationers arbete med hälsopromotion, det vill säga främjande av hälsa på arbetsplatsen. Kandidatuppsatsen behandlar hur hälsopromotion används för att skapa medarbetare som identifierar sig med Svenska Byggnadsarbetarförbundets värderingar. Anställda har intervjuats där utgångspunkten var att undersöka hur förbundskontoret arbetar med hälsopromotion och hur värderingar förmedlas. Genom intervjuer framgick att förbundskontoret använder sig av olika identitetsskapande metoder för att styra medarbetare att identifiera sig med organisationen och för att bli självstyrande. Förbundskontoret använder hälsopromotion för att skapa gemensamma värderingar, detta har bidragit till en stark sammanhållning mellan medarbetare vilket skapat lojalitet och legitimitet gentemot kollegor och organisation.

Abstract [en]

Society has in recent decades focused more and more on health and wellbeing. This has created a growing interest in organizations working with health promotion, in other words the promotion of health in workplaces. The bachelor essay discusses how health promotion is used to create employees who identify themselves with the Swedish Building Workers' Union values. Employees where interviewed on the basis of finding out how the federal office works with health promotion and how values are conveyed. Through interviews we learned that the federal office uses different identity regulation methods to control employees to identify with the organization and to achieve self-control. The federal office uses health promotion in order to create common values, this has contributed to a strong cohesion between employees which has created loyalty and legitimacy towards colleagues and organization.
