At Denmark’s largest trade organisation, the Confederation of Danish Industry, the survey is received with optimism.
“At DI, we’re happy to see that Denmark ranks high in job satisfaction. Job satisfaction increases dedication and motivation and decreases sickness, and a company with a good reputation can more easily attract and retain talented employees. All of this helps create strong and productive companies capable of delivering world-class solutions,” says Director of Management Development Kinga Szabo Christensen, DI.
“But there is also room for improvement. We must make sure to raise the level of Danish management to the very top. We know from our member companies that many managers today are still appointed amongst the most professionally qualified – but as a manager, your toolbox often requires drastic updating. It is not enough to be the skilled specialist. Instead, you have to work on creating results through others,” says Kinga Szabo Christensen.
This requires that a manager is able to motivate, create the right framework, give feedback, generate trust and solve the conflicts and problems that arise, she adds. Hence, development of managers – as managers – is just as important as development of employees and professional skills.
