The Danish labour market - including the financial sector - works differently than labour markets in almost all other parts of the world. At this webinar, we will introduce you to both?nice-to-knows and need-to-knows about the Danish labour market - such as how your salary, holidays and other important terms and conditions are defined and how you can have a say.

The first part of the webinar focuses on The Danish bargaining model and flexicurity by associate professor Nana Wesley Hansen.

Nana will give you an insight into ‘the Danish model’ - a description that emphasizes the importance of the voluntarist employment relations system in Denmark, where the state plays a limited role and collective bargaining dominates the labour market regulation.

Trade unions and employers’ organizations greatly influence employment policy, wages and working conditions through this voluntarist system. Moreover, a rather liberal element in the Danish model is the so-called ‘flexicurity system’, allowing employers considerable flexibility when hiring and dismissing workers, balanced by rather generous welfare benefits and access to further education and training for unemployed workers. This system remains supported by both employers and trade unions.

Nana will present the basics of ‘the Danish model’. She will introduce the collective bargaining process, flexicurity and discuss the role of trade unions and Employers organizations in regulating the Danish labour market.

In the second part of the webinar Daniela Vacaretu, Risk manager at Saxo Bank will share her experiences of being new to the Danish financial sector and tell you about Finansforbundet´s social and professional Network of internationals (NIM) and how you can use the network.

NIM is a network for internationally oriented, English-speaking employees working in the financial sector in Denmark. The purpose of the network is to connect international employees across the financial sector in a community that inspires success at work. It is a network, where you will be challenged and inspired, both professionally and personally - and, at the same time, you will have the opportunity to expand your social network. The network is created and run by a volunteer board made up of internationally oriented employees, in collaboration with Finansforbundet.
