Abstract

The labour market in Denmark, as in most other European countries, is challenged by a combination of growth and increasing labour shortages, and hence faces a tough fight to attract talented employees. New research from ISS Denmark and Copenhagen Business School demonstrates how instead of only adopting an elitist approach that targets a few ‘high-achievers’ in the pursuit of talent, companies can benefit from a more inclusive approach to talent management. This is especially true of diverse companies that employ a substantial number of skilled migrants, who bring valuable and supplementary qualifications into the organisation. To cultivate and utilise their qualifications, organisations need to employ inclusive talent initiatives that cover employees at every level of the organisation. The benefits of these steps will be supplementary qualifications, a strengthened pipeline of successors that includes a wider pool of internal talent and expanded leadership capabilities.
