For a long period of time there has been an extensive documentation of how things are presumed not to be at our workplace. However there is little knowledge on how it is supposed to be, what makes us feel good and what makes us retain our well-being. The aim of this study was to survey the attitudes towards factors of well-being at the workplace among personnel at four institutions at Kristianstad University. The work method used in this study is quantitative and a questionnaire survey was carried out to produce an overall picture. The majority considered praise from manager and the opportunity of development discussions of great importance. During the development discussion the majority considered feedback on work achievements the topic of most importance to discuss. Stress management was found to be the pre-eminent benefit to be offered from the employer. Women had a more positive attitude towards factors that promote health in the relationship between the co-workers. In general women also had a more positive attitude towards factors that promote health in the assignment. The result of our study raises attitudes towards health promoting factors, and could indicate the direction for pursued health promoting work in the workplace. To enable an organization, and its employees, to develop and grow according to their attitudes, they will need opportunities to reflect and learn.
