Denmark in dearth need of Skilled Workers

A recent report reveals that Denmark desperately needs skilled workers to maintain the pace of development of its economy. Software development tops the in-demand skilled occupation list here.

Hays Plc, a recruiting specialist, has published its latest annual report on supply and demand for skilled workers in 33 major economies.

Its Global Skills Index, compiled with the help of Oxford Economics, uses seven indicators (ranging from education flexibility to wage pressure in high-skill occupations) to quantify how easy or difficult it is for firms to attract and retain the most talented workers (a score above 5 suggests the labour market is under pressure).

Sweden topped the list, where demand for skilled labour far outstrips supply, meaning wages in high-skilled industries have been surging.

Denmark stands at number three, whose score has increased by more than any other country this year. The Confederation of Danish Industry said the results are in line with its own findings that “nearly 4 out of 10 of our member companies have had difficulty recruiting qualified employees”.

The key skills in high demand include accountancy in Sweden and software development in Denmark.
