Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund: Arbetsgivare kan stödja de anställdas hälsa genom att erbjuda friskvårdsbidrag. Flera faktorer påverkar individer till att välja hälsorelaterade beteenden. Self-efficacy är en sådan faktor vilket innebär individens tilltro sin egen förmåga att klara en uppgift. Syfte: Studiens syfte var att undersöka relationen mellan self-efficacy och nyttjande av friskvårdsbidrag. Vidare undersöktes fysisk aktivitetsnivå och upplevt hälsotillstånd relaterat till dessa två faktorer. Metod: Undersökningen genomfördes med en enkät som skickades ut genom ett tillverkningsföretags intern-epost.  Korrelationsanalyser, chitvå-test och t-test användes för att utforska relationen mellan variablerna. Resultat: Enkäten skickades till 2019 anställda varav 1022 besvarade enkäten. Mellan self-efficacy och nyttjande av friskvårdsbidrag kunde inget signifikant samband påvisas. Self-efficacy och nyttjande av friskvårdsbidrag var båda korrelerade till både fysisk aktivitetsnivå och upplevt hälsotillstånd. Slutsats: Genom att initiera interventioner på arbetsplatser som fokuserar på att höja self-efficacy och öka nyttjande av friskvårdsbidrag kan anställdas fysiska aktivitetsnivå och upplevda hälsotillstånd förbättras.

Abstract [en]

Background: The employer can support their employees by proving work site wellness programs. “Friskvårdsbidrag[E1] ” is a wellness subsidy that many work sites in Sweden provides. Whether an individual will choose to engage in a health related behavior may be affected by different factors. Self-efficacy is one of these factors and implies the individual’s confidence in his own ability to complete a task. Aim: The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between self-efficacy and the use of “friskvårdsbidrag”. Further was physical activity level and perceived health status also examined. Method: The study was carried out by sending out a questionnaire using a manufacturing company’s internal email. Correlation analyzes chi-square tests and t-tests were used to explore the relationships between the variables. Results: The questionnaire was sent to 2019 employees and 1022 of these were answered. Self-efficacy and the use of “friskvårdsbidrag” were not correlated. Both self-efficacy and the use of “friskvårdsbidrag” were correlated with physical activity level and perceived health status. Conclusion: By initiating interventions in the work sites that are focusing on enhancing self-efficacy and the use of “friskvårdsbidrag”, the employee´s level of physical activity and perceived health status can be increased.
