That depends on the company and on the pension fund. When 401(k)'s first came out, the contributions employees made were invested into the company they worked for. It was a program to give workers ownership in where they worked, a concept they thought would drive up productivity and fiduciary responsibility of workers and simultaneously help enrich workers. Enough companies went under causing employees to lose their entire retirement funds that the government started allowing companies to diversify their employees' investments by investing that money otherwise. Most companies now let you choose how much you want to invest in their company in the way of stock and how much you want to divert to other funds. Most companies offer a variety of fund options that invest in everything from the stock market to small venture capital as well as safer but lower-yield bond options as choices for investment in addition to investing in the company itself.
