Denmark - No labour shortages according to study - August 31, 2017

A biannual recruitment study from the Ministry for Employment concludes that by far the majority of businesses have no problem recruiting workers. There are still 114,900 unemployed workers who can and want to work. Less than one in ten companies in the survey had asked the unemployment insurance fund or the trade union for help in trying to find workers.

At the same time, the survey shows that there is great potential when it comes to skilled labour.
