The Swedish government has decided to expand the scope of the common-good company Samhall to cover 1,000 employees more in 2018 as compared to 2017, and another 1,000 more in 2019. Samhall is a state-owned company whose purpose is to create real jobs for individuals with different types of disabilities and consequently lowered work ability. The company works with production and sales of products and services in various industrial and service sectors and has employees all across the country. The expansion of Samhall's scope follows from the favourable outcomes attained so far in terms of helping disabled people to enter the labour market.

The annual target figure of the number of employees leaving Samhall to work for other employers was also adjusted from the current 1,100 to 1,500.
