What we offer
At AstraZeneca Sweden, when we see the chance to adapt and develop, we seize it – because for us, every opportunity, no matter how small, can be the beginning of something incredible. Delivering medicine that improves people's lives is about having an entrepreneurial spirit – finding the right moment and understanding its potential.
Although we are a global organisation, we are all about being there for our individual colleagues, helping them to be agile and bring out their inner entrepreneur. To instill this sense of value, we have a whole range of great perks in Sweden. Along with the standard benefits we offer as a global company – such as holiday, work-life balance, training and flexible working – we offer the following extras.
We believe that a healthy work environment leads to healthier levels of productivity. So, all our sites offer free employee access to exercise and healthcare facilities, in addition to activities and programs to promote health, wellbeing, motivation, and job satisfaction. In Sweden, we have a dedicated health and wellness centre, gym, sauna and ‘nap room’, all dedicated to encouraging better health and wellbeing in and out of work.
Great on-site amenities
It’s the Scandinavian way to look after your people. That’s why we go above and beyond when it comes to office perks. From doggy day-care and bike maintenance to expansive dining options and community gardens, our Sweden site amenities make coming to work on a Monday morning a pleasure.
We strongly believe in creating careers, not day jobs. That means inspiring passionate colleagues to take their work a step further, to realise their potential and progress internally – with the average employee being promoted within 2 to 3 years. In support of this, we hold internal career days to encourage and promote people who deserve recognition.
As a global business, we have a duty to our colleagues around the world. In Sweden, we not only offer mentoring to ensure people are supported on an everyday basis, but we also hold an Empowerment Summit and manage our own science forums. Both of these initiatives engage our people through talks and celebrations.
