Abstract [en]

Results in research and statistics in Sweden strongly suggest that the work environment in christian churches could be improved. Fuzzy leadership, in-built structural conflicts and inadequate internal communication are apparent. This study takes its departure from this and examines the work environment in four different christian denominations in central Sweden. The specific aim is to study the reasons behind long term sick leave in order to provide preventive measures to avoid ill-health. The study will be conducted in three phases. In Phase I, data from Statistics Sweden will be compared to information from self-administered questionnares. In Phase II, a questionnaire on psychosocial work environment and health will be distributed to all those employed in the four denominations. In Phase III, interviews with church staff, politicians, trade unions and health workers will be conducted. By integrating all the data, ways to improve the work environment for those employed will be presented.
