The workplace is an important arena to improve the health of the population in Sweden. Some workplaces are using a method called health profile evaluation to evaluate the employee’s health and to motivate them to a healthy behavior. The aim of this study was to analyze employee’s view of the method and to study if it could affect their health promoting behavior. Eight people from a workplace that recently have done a health profile evaluation took part in this qualitative interview study. The result showed that it’s a method that promotes a healthy lifestyle and a method that can motivate people to a healthier behavior. There was no specific section in the health profile evaluation that affected most people, it differed among the respondents. The method affected the employees in different ways and it also affected individuals that already had a healthy lifestyle. The employees were positive about the health profile besides one thing, it was hard to estimate the borg-scale.
