Health promotion

Last changed: 09 March 2017

As an employee at SLU, you may choose one of the following two alternatives:

  • Exercise/health promotion during working hours for one hour per week. You must come to an agreement regarding content and time for this hour with your closest manager.
  • Health promotion reimbursement worth up to SEK 1500 per year for any activity which follows Skatteverket’s guidelines for tax-free exercise. For example: gymnastics, strength training, spinning, bowling, racket sports, team sports and dance workouts.

You may also use the health promotion reimbursement for tai chi, qigong, dietary advice, information on stress management, prophylaxis courses for pregnant employees and so-called office massage.

If necessary, you may also use the health promotion reimbursement for a course on curing nicotine addiction.

The head of department (or equivalent) has the right to make decisions regarding health promotion based on the alternatives above. Please contact Human Resources with any questions you might have.

State your expenses on the form for health promotion which can be found on the form page.
