Abstract [en]

Good conditions in the workplace, fairness in the workplace and the social differences contribute to a general improvement in public health. A health-promoting leader is working to create a workplace that promotes health, supports its employees and contributes to their wellbeing. The purpose of this study was to investigate the first-line managers in the city of Västerås experience and deal with their conditions and obstacles in the health-promoting leadership. A qualitative approach was chosen and the selection was six first-line managers working in three different areas of the City of Västerås. Managers were interviewed by an interviewguide and the material was analyzed with a manifest content analysis, with an inductive approach. The results showed that managers had knowledge of health-promoting leadership and that they were working with health promotion strategies, both deliberately and unconsciously. Conditions that affect the health promoting leadership proved knowledge, manager’s personality, requirements, collaboration and support. Obstacles in health leadership were considered for some time, ignorance and to many employees to be responsible for. There was a need for more knowledge and support in health leadership. The conclusions were that the conditions for health promotion leadership should be improved and there is a need for training in the subject and the support of the head of health promotion within the City of Västerås.
