What does having membership mean?
Membership with us means that you get the support you need to be a good employer and to make your company a success. This comes in the form of advice, training, political influence for better business conditions and industry-adapted collective agreements that we draw up and sign for your company.
What are the benefits?
As an employer, you need to keep abreast of rules, laws and employer news. You have to create a good work environment while at the same time growing your company. This is a complex task – so we help you with the complicated things, letting you focus on what you do best. Membership with us saves you both time and money and gives you confidence that you are a good employer. It makes everyday life easier, you can be confident you are doing things right, from the very beginning, and if problems do arise, expertise is always close at hand.
What does it cost?
The cost of membership depends on the size of your company, the number of employees and the association that you join. Contact us for more information.
What do you get for your money?
The cost of membership is small considering all the benefits that come with it. It is an investment that creates the conditions for you to make your company a success. Read more about the membership at the rest of this page or contact us.
What are the requirements?
Almega is an employers’ organisation for service companies. If your company offers services of any kind and belongs in one of our associations, it can join us as a member.
Membership of Almega is a mark of quality that says you are a good employer and provide good conditions for your employees. The membership requirements vary slightly depending on which association you belong to, while this in turn depends on what kind of business you run. We will establish this during our initial conversation with you, once you have expressed your interest at the bottom of this page.
Where do you find Almega?
We are always nearby, wherever your company is located, and we have ten offices spread across the country: in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Linköping, Luleå, Malmö, Sundsvall, Umeå, Växjö and Örebro.
What different memberships are available?
To make use of all our services, you will need full membership, which includes support from Almega, one of the nine associations within the employers’ organisation and the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise. There may be different membership options, however, depending on which association your company will be joining.rnrnIf you are not interested in a collective agreement, there may be an opportunity, for example, for industry membership that includes the association’s advocacy work and network as well as membership of the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise, but not Almega’s employer service with its expert help and advice.rnrnContact us and we will be able to tell you more about the options available.

Why collective agreements are so important
Collective agreements can be a requirement for participating in procurements, but above all they provide security at the workplace and give you the conditions you need to be a good employer.
A collective agreement is an agreement between an employers’ organisation and a trade union that governs the conditions for your employees in relation to forms of employment, working hours, holiday, sick pay and notice periods. Everyone at the workplace knows what the rules are and you can be confident you are complying with laws and regulations. Many issues that arise at a workplace are already governed by the collective agreement, saving time for both you and your employees.
And local agreements not as beneficial
As an employer, you can choose to conclude a collective agreement directly with a trade union, instead of letting an employers’ organisation negotiate the agreement for you. This is known as a local agreement.
However, a local agreement will be more expensive than a collective agreement through us. You have to pay for employment transition insurance (0.4% of the annual salary total) and some trade unions also charge administrative fees and take payment for legal advice on employment law. All this is included in our membership.
You also receive access to our employer hotline, our digital knowledge bank Arbetsgivarguiden, negotiation assistance and legal assistance in employment law disputes.
