Saab Global

This is Saab

Saab has a strong company culture, based on our common goal to contribute to safety in a complex and unpredictable world. We are proud of what we do and the important purpose the defence industry serve in society.

Our culture

We live by three values that define us and the way we act and work:

  • Drive. We have a passion for innovation, we are open to change and we are committed to being fast and flexible.
  • Expertise. We combine a strong history of knowledge with constant learning.
  • Trust. We are global citizens, honest and reliable, and we keep our promises.

Saab is home to a diverse array of people and products, and an innovative and collaborative environment. Working with cutting edge technology, with the purpose of solving tomorrow’s defence challenges, we have a performance driven culture where everyone is encouraged to drive their own development and explore their full potential. We are knowledgeable, creative and imaginative, and believe the best way to do success is by working together to solve often complex challenges.

Operating in a complex business such as the defence industry, responsibility and trust is key to everything we do. We keep our and our partners’ information safe and take pride in doing business in an honest and responsible way all over the world.


Saab is a place for everyone. Operating in a dynamic and unpredictable world, the benefits of a diverse workforce are essential to our success. We need people of different backgrounds, ages and experiences to come together and share their different ideas and perspectives. That’s what makes us able to meet our customers’ needs today and predict the defence challenges of tomorrow.

Gender balance

Security is a traditionally male dominated industry but we are out to change that. Between 2007 and 2017, we doubled the share of women in managing roles and the work continues. The goal is to increase the share of female managers to 30 per cent globally and 35 per cent in Sweden by 2025.

Diversity is an important part of Saab’s recruiting process and management training. We are a growing company, and we are set to harness the skills of all employees, whatever their background, because we know it leads to better decisions, better products and safer societies.
