37 days of paid holiday
Every full-time employee is offered 25 paid vacation days per year.

Plus Swedens paid bank holidays this makes up to 37 vacation days per year.
Sound working hours
Our flextime schedule makes it possible for our employees to manage their starting times and working hours. Since we consider consistent overtime a sign of poor management we do everything in our power to keep everyone’s working weeks to 40 hours. After major deliveries we offer compensation leave or paid overtime, if we failed in doing this.
