Denmark - Foreign employees accountable for two thirds of value creation growth - December 31, 2015

New figures published by the Confederation of Danish Industry reveal that the country’s value creation from 2010 to 2014 rose by DKK 34 billion of which foreign employees contributed DKK 24 billion. Currently, 145,000 foreigners measured by full-time employees are employed in Denmark. This is an increase of 45% since 2010 – and projections show that immigrants and descendants of immigrants will be responsible for more than 70% of the increase in the workforce by 2050. The country must ensure that it attracts more foreign workers with the right skills sets, according to the employers’ confederation.
