Introduction: Developed forms of integrated work environment benefits both the employees and the business, and can increase job satisfaction and performance and reduce absenteeism. Leaders are crucial for a health promotive work environment. A key challenge in the development of a health promotive work environment is that it integrates with management models. This requires cooperation between managers, occupational health services (OHS) and human resource (HR). Material and methods: This presentation presents integrated conclusions from two research programs of sustainable leadership and collaboration between OHS, HR and managers. The main data used is qualitative: interviews, observations and document with managers, human resource (HR) personnel and personnel in occupational health services. Results: Cooperation involves a continuous interaction between these actors, and between managers at various levels. Key conditions for the cooperation is a trusting relationship between these actors, managers who perceive themselves to "own" the process when it comes to developing the work environment and that HR and OHS are seen and used by managers as functional supportive resources. Our studies reveal the importance of working with early, weak signals. Further, the focus on crafting resources among individuals, groups and organizations have importance to build capacity for sustainability. Work environment management including an organizational perspective is central, in terms of operational performance and quality, but also related to developing forms of integrated work environment. If the work environment is strategic and important to the operations, it must be visible in the management model. Conclusions: Prevention and health promotion is counteracted by the informal boundaries between line managers, HR and OHS, and difficulty to catch up and give legitimacy to the weak signals of the risk of illness. Major components of what flaws to achieve cooperation between the actors in itself are the level of trust that is needed to make outside expert knowledge current. Crafting sustainable leadership includes building capacity to early identify and manage risks and resources, and have knowledge of the factors that are favorable from a holistic perspective in the workplace as well as at the individual, group and organizational level.
