WORK IN DENMARK
What to know: Denmark is located in Northern Europe, to the north of Germany and to the south/southwest of Norway and Sweden. It is an island nation measuring about 43,000 square kilometers which consists of the peninsula, Jutland and 474 islands, of which Zealand, Funen, Lolland, Falster and Bornholm are the largest. Denmark has 5.5 million residents. Of these, approximately 300,000 are foreign nationals, 64% of whom come from Scandinavia, the EU or North America. As of 1 January 2007, there were approx. 480,000 immigrants and their descendants in Denmark. Although the official language of Denmark is Danish, English is obligatory in primary schools and is spoken and understood by nearly all Danes. A great number of Danes also speak and understand German.
There are many good reasons for seeking work in Denmark. First and foremost, Denmark has an attractive working environment with relaxed and development-oriented working conditions. Danish corporate culture is characterised by a flat structure and an open dialogue between management and employees. Denmark’s most important competition parameter is know-how, which is reflected in both the work facilities and views on employee development. Workplaces attach considerable priority to competence development, and most offer ongoing supplementary training to their employees.
And it doesn’t just make sense to come to Denmark as a worker. Your family will also be offered good conditions in Denmark; it is a secure and safe country in which to live, and many foreigners also find there is a good balance between family life and work when they come to Denmark. This is largely because the working week is only 37 hours, and because Danish employers generally respect family life. In Denmark you are able to spend a relatively large amount of time with your family, and there are good possibilities for being professionally challenged at work. The working culture is cooperation-oriented and the working environment is marked by open and informal social conventions. Many Danes are very interested in their work and Danish employees are considered motivated and committed. Danish workplaces offer very good working conditions, modern facilities and high-quality technical equipment. Competence development is highly prioritised and most workplaces regularly offer continuing education to their employees.
