Parental leave compensation

Through your employment, you are covered by collectively agreed parental insurance, which can provide supplementary payments when you receive parental benefit from the Social Insurance Agency, known as parental benefit supplement.

 

Reduction in working hours

For each completed week of work, time is transferred to a time bank. The time that the employee holds in the time bank can be appropriated as paid leave, cash payment or pension premium.
Provision from time bank to pension premium/cash payment: During the month of December, it is possible to exchange time in My Saab. Payment will be made during the month of January.

 

Share Matching Plan

In April 2007, Saab’s Annual General Meeting decided to offer permanent employees the opportunity to participate in a voluntary share savings programme, known as the Share Matching Plan (SMP). Since then, the Annual General Meeting has decided each year to offer a new programme. The backdrop to this is that the Board of Directors considers it important for Saab’s employees to have a long-term interest in the positive development of the value of the company’s shares.
 
The programme involves employees being offered the chance to purchase Class B shares in Saab on Nasdaq Stockholm over a twelve-month period. Saving takes place by means of a salary deduction of between 1–5 per cent of the monthly salary. If the participant retains the purchased shares for three years after the investment date and continues to be employed by the Saab Group, the participant will be awarded a corresponding number of class B shares free of charge.

 

Pension

As an employee at Saab, you earn state pension and collectively agreed pension. If you are employed as an office worker you are covered by the occupational pension ITP, and as a wage earner by the SAF-LO collective pension.
