Retention of International Talent
Recruiting qualified labour from abroad is a necessity for many Danish companies. However, a sole focus on attracting talent is not enough. If the company overlooks the task of securing the well-being of the employee and hence is unable to retain the newcomer, the recruitment investments can quickly go awry.
Therefore, helping your new employee to a good start is paramount in your efforts in retaining that employee. There is no checklist to securing the well-being of your new employee. Which steps you want to take in helping your employee feeling welcome, is up to you.
