Abstract

Since the working environment act was passed in 1991 employers in Sweden are to plan and control the working environment conditions in workplaces. They are responsible for organized rehabilitation at the workplace including the development of rehabilitation plans and a plan for interventions in order for a sick-listed client to be able to return to work.The aim of this study was to describe employers experiences of how motivation can be improved in a work rehabilitation process. Qualitative interviews were performed with 10 employers who had taken part of a vocational rehabilitation at a rehabilitation centre in the north of Sweden over a 2 year period. The result showed that increased focus on motivation for change could be improved by a focus on motivationsl conversations at the workplace. The employers initiative,competence,economic resources and motivation are needed for creative solutions at the workplace.
