Abstract [en]

Länsförsäkringar in Värmland, Sweden, had during the year 2003 a total level of 6.1 percent of people on the sick-list, which was higher than average in the business (4,5%) and for salaried employees in the private sector (3,3%). The average age of those put on sick-list was 47 years, whish is four years higher than the average for the whole LF-group. The cost for the total amount of people being on sick-list at LF-company (6,1%) was estimated to 1 500 kkr, according to a calculation model coming from Försäkringskassan. For every percent the sick level could be reduced, the company would save 239 kkr. To map out the state of health of each and every collaborator in LF, the company offered all employees to make a health profile at the company's health service, Clarahälsan AB. This health control was accomplished during May 2004 to August 2004, and almost every employee participated (99%). The purpose of this study was to find out if the stress and lifestyle handling course at Clarahälsan AB, which was offered those considered in need for it after the health control,could influence the motivation of the participants to change lifestyle in order to prevent long time sick leave. A quantitative method was used to evaluate goals for life style changes after accomplishment of the course by quastionnaire. Three women and six men participated in the study. The result shows that six out of seven (two drop-outs) had been influenced in a positive way towards a chang in lifestyle including exercise, stress management, sleep and work situation. All seven had a postive change considering food habits.
