Abstract [en]

Abstract Purpose The purpose of this paper is to develop a measurement system for leadership for health promotion based on the authors´ earlier research on the connection between quality management and health. Methodology The study has been carried out at Engcon, a manufacturing company in Sweden, which has low rate of sick leaves and also very healthy finances. A questionnaire has been developed based on the authors´ earlier research and the internal reliability has been tested for the constructs with Cronbach´s alpha tests. The dimensions correlation with health has also been checked with Pearson Correlation. Findings The measurement systems Cronbach alphas are ranging from 0.64-0.84, which are quite good since we only included three statements for each construct. Two of the dimensions have a high statistical correlation with perception of employee health; namely the dimension "presence/communication" and "influence". A significant correlation can also be seen between the dimension "integrity" and the health-index.
