"The commitment of the management is the most important value when it comes to achieving sustainable health among employees," says Ingela Bäckström. "The health perspective is long-term, and sustainable health is measured by more than sickness leaves. But sustainable health often does lead to improved healthy attendance."
Sustainable health is about a long-term perception of well-being that leads to the contentment of employees. This increases the preconditions for sustained or enhanced motivation and commitment. This entails a positive effect on employee health, which is something that good leaders can influence over time.
Among other things, Ingela Bäckström has studied organizations with low rates of absenteeism for sickness and looked at how they work. She has also asked employees in various organizations what is important in making them enjoy their work.
Ingela Bäckström at the Mid Sweden University Department of Technology and Sustainable Development will publicly defend her dissertation on May 28 in Östersund. It is titled On the Relationship between Sustainable Health and Quality Management - Leadership and Organizational Behaviours from Swedish Organizations. The subject area is quality technology.Questions may be directed to:

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.
When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...
At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.
Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
