Sweden provides universal health care, with the healthcare system being mostly administered at the county and municipal levels. Although private health insurance is accessible, only a tiny proportion of Swedish citizens have it.
If an employee is a member of a union, the CBA may require that he or she get private health insurance. Private health insurance is utilized to bypass the queue of public health insurance and give cash upfront rather than paying out of pocket and waiting for public health insurance to repay them. In Sweden, this benefit is part of a packaged plan that also includes a pension and certain protective benefits.
Some employers provide food coupons, corporate vehicles, stock incentive programs, and/or additional vacation time
Private pension plans for both employers and employees are also extremely common in Sweden. Non-EU nationals working in Sweden are usually required to have private pension insurance in order to get a Swedish work visa. In Sweden, it is not obligatory for an employer to provide an additional pension, but it is quickly becoming a popular and desired supplementary perk. It is standard practice to provide workers with a private pension once they have completed their trial term. It is customary for them to set aside 5-10% of their monthly gross income.
