Abstract A number of different Swedish institutions and enterprises received financial support in order to make improvements in the workplace. The improvements were mostly in the field of work organization and training, but changes in the layout and purchase of new equipment were also funded. The report describes the workplaces after the changes, via interviews of the employees and management. Both advantages and disadvantages are presented, and even a project that encountered great difficulties is described. The institutions and firms involved: domestic service, fishing gear manufacturer, newspaper, supermarket, accommodation service, refrigerator manufacturer, hospital, ice-cream factory, community service, woodworking factory and schools. A self study manual is attached.
