Living and working in Sweden
Sweden offers an attractive and rewarding work environment to employees. Labor and employment protection frameworks are strong and there is a national culture of constructive cooperation and dialog between employers and employees.
Social Security system
The Swedish Social insurance aims to provide financial security through a stable welfare society for all. The social security system has many facets, ranging from parental leave and child care to sickness and accident insurance, disability assistance and care for the elderly. The system is administered by the Swedish Social Insurance Agency (Försäkringskassan), www.fk.se which covers all Swedish residents and is primarily funded by statutory contributions.
Sweden is a great place to have children. Parents are together entitled to 480 days of leave from work per child, starting from birth. Sixty days are reserved for each parent, beyond which parents are free to decide how to arrange their leave. The parental allowance is 80 percent of salary up to a maximum and is paid by the social security system. Fathers may also take ten days’ leave in connection with the birth of a child. If you have to stay at home from work in order to look after a sick child under the age of twelve, you may be entitled to temporary parental benefit. You find more information about the Swedish parental benefits system on www.fk.se.
To really make a statement of being a modern and supportive company regarding parental leave, EASY has a company benefit called Parental Salary Benefit. This means that employees are entitled to a parental salary that will limit the gap between your normal salary and what you get paid by the social security system as parental insurance while on parental leave. The period you will receive parental salary benefit is determined by the length of your service with the company.
Like public healthcare, Sweden also features some of the best and most affordable childcare and educational systems in the world. The maximum cost per month for having your child in a child care is approximately. 1200 SEK for one child, approx. 2000 SEK for two children and approx. 2500 SEK for three children. Elementary, secondary, and university education are all high quality and just as exciting, free!
One of the best aspects of living in Sweden is the inexpensive and high quality public healthcare system here. The Swedish system ranks among the most beneficial in the world and is basically free after the first doctor’s visit.
