ATTRACTION & RETENTION Danish companies are competing on a new battlefield for international talent. Highly skilled, educated profes¬sionals, scientists or researchers have their choice of countries in this global day and age. Despite Denmark being the happiest country in the world (2nd) for work-life balance and excelling in areas such as health and wellbeing, Denmark was ranked 63 out of 64 countries in the Expat Insider Survey 2019 for both Ease of Settling in and Friendliness.
THE HUMAN SIDE OF MOBILITY Most companies hiring internationals use global mobility companies to streamline the processes and keep scopes aligned across borders, mostly focusing on the practical side of international transfer.
