Sunday 13. November 2022

Are you looking for new employees in Denmark?

If your business is to expand to Denmark, you may not only need new premises but also new employees. Here is a short guide for recruiting in Denmark.

When talking about recruitment of new employees in Denmark, it is important to emphasize that there is one thing that is more important than recruitment, namely retention of the existing skilled employees. It costs an extremely large amount of money to hire and train new employees for relevant work in most industries, so retaining existing employees should always be the primary goal.

Having said that, recruiting the right employees is the most important process for a company's "health" and growth. As an organisation, you have to be extremely sharp about what precise competences and human qualities are needed to be able to carry out the various tasks and responsibilities in the organisation.

There are several different ways to approach recruitment, and there is not one list of facts that suits all companies. However, there are still some general advice and recommendations that can be good to have with you:

1. Make a clear and precise job description.

As a company, you must be completely clear on the skills and characteristics needed to solve the various tasks. It is not always easy to be precise, but it is crucial to finding the right candidate. Remember to also tell in your job ad why it is great to be in your company, so that you can attract the right applicants. See advice on how to write a good job advertisement here.

2. Be clear about what personality type is being sought

As a company, you must also be completely aware of which personality fits best into the company. It is not only the professional competences that are decisive, but also the personality.

3. Create a structured recruitment process

It is very important that you as a company create an extremely structured recruitment process so that you do not end up hiring the wrong person or overlooking the right person in the crowd.

6. Have a good interview
