Advice to employees in Sweden on a broad front
Södra offers its employees information on pensions and insurance protection. This is one of many activities intended to help make the company an attractive employer. Södra strives for equal pension and insurance solutions for all of its employees in Sweden.
The advice is one of many factors that help Södra both retain and recruit employees with the expertise to develop the business.
From 2011, all employees have the possibility to get advice on pensions, social security packages and survivor cover. The advice is provided at information meetings on the pension system and retirement pension, sickness benefits and survivor cover.
All necessary forms for various choices in these areas are available at the meeting so that participants have the opportunity to complete the forms and get help. Many view it as a major advantage to be able to ask questions and make the choices directly.
After the information meeting, the employees can monitor their choices and get more information through an online solution.
At mid-2012, all employees should have been invited to an information meeting and received advice on pensions and other social security packages. The meetings held during the year throughout Sweden had many participants and there was considerable interest among both collective agreement employees and salaried employees.
The information has had a positive reception. The participants gave the presenters high marks and there was a high level of activity among the participants.
