Abstract [en]

We spend a great deal of our adult lives at work, therefore it is important that work creates conditions for employees to maintain and promote health. A common tool for this is health promotion. A problem by default when it comes to promoting health is the variety of physical and psychological challenges in a workplace as well as its organizational structure. Therefore, it is important for sociology and working life research to understand occupational status in relation to health and well-being. This essay compiles 10 research articles and also theory related to healthcare initiatives within companies and organizations, related to diverse types of occupational status. Based on sociological concepts such as socioeconomic status, habitus and occupational status, the aim is to inquire into how occupational status affect the outcome of health promotion. To maintain an employees good health, a holistic perspective on health promotion measures is required. Isolated measures rarely generate satisfactory results, nor efforts planned without considering surrounding factors, hence a standard model is not preferable. By broadening the view of what health promotion measures is, implementing them with regard to context, as well as the occupational status, can both a continued discussion last and in the long run also generate an updated view on health promotion.
