International & EU

SAGE is a member of the European Centre of Employers and Enterprises Providing Public Services (CEEP), one of the social partners at European level. Through its membership of the CEEP, SAGE takes part in the European cross-sectoral Social Dialogue.

At Nordic level, government employers meet regularly to discuss current issues and exchange experience in the field of employment policy.

As one of the parties on the Swedish labour market, safeguarding the interests of central government employers, SAGE regularly participates in consultations with the Government on EU related issues. These consultations include discussions on how EU directives and regulations are to be incorporated into Swedish legislation. SAGE also regularly provides responses to documents circulated by the Government for comment and also to other enquiries from international organisations.

The Swedish Agency for Government Employers also takes part in various working parties initiated by OECD/PGC (Public Governance Committee).
