Training and guidance
It is imperative to Saab’s culture and continued success that all Saab employees understand and can identify potential risks for bribery and corruption arising.
This capability cannot be taken for granted so requires a training offer that combines group-wide activities with targeted efforts, and easy access to expertise and guidance. Saab’s training portfolio includes e-learnings, webinars, face-to-face training and case studies.
All employees regardless of position are trained in Saab’s Code of Conduct and in anti-bribery and corruption. Mandatory e-learnings are supplemented with webinars and customized classroom training.
Employees and managers in positions exposed to higher risks, such as marketing and sales, business development, sourcing, project management and industrial co-operations, receive in-depth classroom training. This training includes, among other things, general risk awareness and guidance in internal processes and risk management tools.
The Board of Directors and the Group Management of Saab receive extensive anti-bribery training every three years. This training is built around existing corruption risk prevention procedures and case studies. Business ethics is a recurring topic at internal conferences and management meetings. Training is also part of the process for releasing new or updated policies and procedures.
Running guidance and advice is provided by dedicated ethics and compliance personnel or accessible around the clock through Saab’s Ethics and Compliance Portal, a web-based tool available to all employees, with information on policies and procedures, laws and regulations, red flags etc.
