Denmark is 4th best talent country in the EU
Denmark also performs well on country level. In the 2017 Index, ranking 118 nations, Denmark is number four in the European Union and number eight globally.
“Greater Copenhagen has a very strong talent base available for companies who wish to invest in or conduct R&D in areas such as health tech, life sciences, cleantech, ICT and smart city technologies. Copenhagen ranks top in most happiness and quality of life indexes and offers its citizens a green, clean and balanced way of life – which the majority of internationals who move here really appreciate” says Claus Lønborg, CEO, Copenhagen Capacity.
“If you are considering setting up a business in Northern Europe, Greater Copenhagen offers a very attractive and highly competitive business environment.”
Denmark offers the world’s lowest employer costs
Copenhagen does not only offer a highly skilled workforce, the talents also come at a very competitive price. Salary levels for researchers, postdocs and other highly skilled employees such as engineers and R&D team leaders are lower than in other major cities in Northern Europe.
Moreover, Denmark offers the world’s lowest employer costs with employers paying less than one percent (and maximum EUR 1,350) per employee per year in social contributions. In Denmark, employer-paid social security contributions are less than 1% of salary – in neighbouring Sweden, it is 32%.
