The accounting firm Beierholm and two IT companies, Conscia and Delegate, are the best workplaces in Denmark, according to the consulting company Great Place to Work.
While Delegate finished top in the small business category (20-49 employees), Conscia ranked first among the medium-size businesses (50-499 employees), and Beierholm emerged triumphant among the large businesses with more than 500 employees.
IT companies best workplaces
In total, 125 Danish companies participated in the competition and more than 25,000 employees answered a questionnaire about their workplace.
The 50 best workplaces represent a total of 16 sectors, with the IT industry dominating with 14 companies.
The parameters for winning the award included trust, pride, communication and development.
The top 50 companies have, in total, created 612 new jobs in the past year and increased their revenue by nine percent on average.
Well-being of employees key to success
They have also significantly fewer employees going on sick leave than the national average.
“In our industry, we often have long working days. However, many of our employees are young people who are getting educated at the same time. Many of them have children too,” explained Kenneth Jensen, the managing director at Beierholm, in Finans.
“In such an environment, there’s a potential for conflicts. So, if we don’t focus on employee well-being, we wouldn’t be able to grow our business.”
Meanwhile, the Center for Social Psychiatry in Lolland was named the best public workplace.
