My overall research perspective is about the relationship between the work environment and productivity and health. Current studies are interested in the effects of going to work when one should have stayed home because of ill health, so-called sickness presenteeism. The project aims to find out more about health, sickness absence and sickness absence, and productivity at work from a health economic point of view. I also participate in a project "Work Environment and Productivity" among public employees where the purpose is to implement some of the most well-documented research results from the effect of the work environment on objective productivity. The knowledge from my project could provide better and healthy workplaces partly in terms of practical recommendations, but also in terms of what should be measured. The project provides information on how ill health, working conditions, sickness absence, sickness absence, and productivity are connected.
